Unison Soft Pastels

Unison pastels have a fantastic texture which results from them being hand rolled rather than extruded. The pastels are based on traditional pigments such as cadmiums, cobalts and natural and synthetic earths as these pigments have stood the test of time.

Unison Colour began in the early 1980s when Artist John Hersey found that mass-produced, factory made pastels simply did not offer the qualities he was looking for, and so he decided to make his own.

There are currently 380 colours in the Unison range which are arranged in colour groups of complimentary tones and shades which allows for intuative selection of colours.
