Girault Soft PastelsA true delight.
These French Artisan Made Soft Pastels are of the highest quality having been in continuous production since 1780. Exceptional pigment load provides true and vibrant colour whilst the application is easy and flowing. The soft and creamy nature of the pastels lends itself to blending as well as the ability to make consistent accurate strokes with varying degrees of density. The pastels have a uniform consistency across the range and are crumble resistant which allows you to use them with a little more vigour at the start of a painting if so desired. Of note is the ability of the pastel to adhere well to a wide range of papers which means the need for fixative is greatly reduced or eliminated.
