Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencil Sets

Following the launch of its individual Pastel Pencils and themed mixed assortments of Pastel Pencils and Pastel Cubes, Caran d’Ache has introduced a series of general assortment sets.

Carefully selected by leading pastel artists, Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencil Sets are intended for both beginners and experienced amateur or professional artists. Ideal for preliminary work, the sets are also perfect for detailed finishing of a huge variety of subjects.

Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencils are made from pure raw materials to create a pastel pencil paste that is fed by hand into round moulding dies, oven-dried in special baskets, carefully glued between two strips of the finest California cedar, and cut into lengths to produce several pencils. Four coats of clear varnish are applied, and great care is taken to exactly match the color cap to the shade of the pastel. As a final step, the pencils are sharpened in a double-cone process, a particularly delicate operation for such a fragile product.

Features of these pencils include a large lead diameter (4.7 mm) with a strong point and a rich texture that adheres well to most surfaces. Creamy to apply, the pencils shade easily, while their hexagonal, rounded barrels reduce the risk of breakage from rolling off work surfaces.

The color range includes a well-balanced selection of 84 shades that are vivid, luminous, natural (toned down), and respond perfectly to the needs of professional pastelists. Also included is a wide range of clear and dark flesh tones, and shades of Cobalt Blue, Green Earth, Beige, and cold and warm Grays often sought by pastelists who love a variety and depth of shades.

Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencils are also exceptionally lightfast. Of the range of 84 colors, 61 keep their intensity and luminosity unchanged for more than 50 years, and some even up to 100 years.
