PASTELS

Hand made in Northumberland using the best pigments, the velvety soft Unison Pastel range is considered to be one of the finest in the world.

We carry over 300 individual loose Unison Pastels, and also sets.

You can also make up your own set from the loose pastels.

A range on soft pastels in vivid colours. Excellent value for money, available in 12's, 24's, 36 and 48 sets.

Conte 'carre a paris' firm pastels

A firmer pastel range that is a superb companion to the more traditional soft pastel. Enabling the artist to work with more detail, yet used on it's side, will still cover larger areas with ease. We stock the loose pastels and 12, 24, 36 and 48 sets.

Oil Pastels

We sell these in 12, 24 and 36 sets. A good student grade pastel. Can be diluted with turpentine.

Pastel fixative suitable for pastel, charcoal and pencil work. Dries colourless, and once applied helps restore some 'tooth' to the paper. As with most fixatives, it works best when applied little and often rather than saturating the work upon completion. Use in a well ventilated area.

Oil pastels never fully cure, so it important to fix them. 

Sennelier has a totally transparent fixative made from a vinyl-resin and alcohol base. Leaves a clear and silk-like film. 

Art Graf

These aren't a pastel as such, but this seems the best place to put them! They have more of a crayon consistency, with a very smooth, silky feel to them. Absolutely wonderful for life drawing as they can be used for free flowing mark making. They are also water-soluble, and have a very inky feel when wet. The 'tailor's chalk' format makes them comfortable to use, and they have a lovely range of earth tones as well as primary colours and natural graphite. We sell the singly and in sets.
