Many artists use KOH-I-NOOR soft pastels.
Why? This product is absolutely amazing for painting a still life of portraits. With these pastels you can paint by any technique and you will never be disappointed with the result.
The package consists of 12, 24, 36 or 48 pieces. All the chalks are packed carefully to prevent breaking.
These pastels are perfect for creating a smooth background or to colour the lining. The tones are earthy and bold. The chalk has a round shape and is easy to hold in hand. Every chalk is packed in paper that is easy to remove. The spreading of pigment is impressive and the colours spread perfectly as well.
This product is a good start for someone who wants to use pastels. It is used by amateurs as well as professionals. The biggest advantage is the very low price considering the quality.
To conclude, I would like to point out that it is good to always use fixative products.
