Half Sticks Measure 1 1/14 long x 5/8 diameter (unwrapped in a slightly larger, squared shape to prevent breakage). The use of the gum arabic creates a soft pastel that can also be wetted once on the substrate, and spread like a watercolor. The cylindrical pastel mold used by Sennelier in the manufacturing process does not compress the pastel paste, instead merely forming the uniform shape (which now features a larger diameter stick than before for added strength, while maintaining the soft nature of the pastel).
Sticks are dried naturally in the open air for 4 weeks for a uniform softness throughout the pastel. Using Sennelier Soft Pastels utilizes a deep and rich history of color, backed up by one of the most dedicated craftsman to color in history. Artists who relied on his and his son Gustaves expertise and experience achieved fame through their artworks, like Paul Gaugin, Modigliani, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Picasso, Chagall, Salvador Dali, and so many more. Give yourself the treat designed for the pastel master Degas himself, and choose Sennelier for the finest quality soft pastels available!Their vibrancy and brightness can attributed to not containing clays, like other brands.
