Had bad experiences with soft pastels in the past? Bet you never tried Carré Pastels before.
Carré really are the premier of traditional pastels, the perfect addition to your sketchbook repertoire. Before the advent of pencils, pastels such as these were commonplace. What do you think Da Vinci drew with in his sketchbooks? It wasn't a pencil it was pastels just like these.
They are the quality masters of the soft chalk pastel world, using ancient, time-honoured techniques to create their quality pastels, from traditional expertise and materials such as chalk, china clay and coloured earth. They are fantastic sketching pastels, as they are the perfect shape and length to be held artfully in one’s hand, and release their colour consistently and smoothly.
They come in a limited number of earthy colours and are only sold in sketching sets, as they have been for well over a century. They work fantastically on all types of paper, and have an intense colour to them for such neutral and earthly tones. They also offer the very highest of quality of colour fastness and adhesion, which is integral to pastelwork.
