Sennelier Soft Pastel Half Stick 6pc Set - Dark Skin Tones

Sketching a Portrait is not an easy task. However, these carefully selected hues provide a good range of neutral browns for the rendering of the skin of a dark-toned model. 

The high quality composition of “à l’écu” pastels is the result of a perfect balance between binder and pigment. For gradient shades, increasing amounts of mineral fines are added, ultimately tending towards white. The exceptional brightness is the result of the pigment and of the natural mineral fines discovered by Sennelier in 1905 and that have been used ever since.

Sennelier Soft Pastels are composed of high quality pure pigment grounded with a natural transparent binder. It took over three years, at the turn of the 20th Century, to formulate the Sennelier range of Extra Soft Pastels “à l’écu” and thus to create one of the largest chromatic range of pastels. Throughout the century, this range of tones has evolved, but the heart of its making remains unchanged.
