Welcome to dickblick
The history of Royal Talens goes back to 1899. In that year, Marten Talens founded the "Dutch Factory for Paints, Lacquers, and Inks" based in Apeldoorn, Netherlands. Rembrandt Soft Pastels have since become one of the most popular artist pastels in the world.
We offer you the full range of Rembrandt colors in open stock. Rembrandt pastels are made from the purest pigments and mixed with the finest quality kaolin clay binder. No pigments containing heavy metals, such as cadmium, lead, and cobalt, are used in production which ensures that the pastels have no hard bits or sharp edges.
These pastels are harder in consistency than many soft pastels, allowing for more control and definition in your painting. Full sticks measure 2-3/4" long × 7/16" diameter (70 mm × 11 mm). They are paper wrapped, and are sold individually. Half sticks are available only in sets.
Gift Idea — Rembrandt Soft Pastels are available in a variety of attractively packaged sets, from economical half stick sets to the exquisitely packaged wooden box sets. See Rembrandt Soft Pastel Sets for pictures and more detailed specifications of these sets.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Minimum Order — Please order individual pastels (open stock) in a minimum of 6, so that we can efficiently package and ship your order. Your selection may be assorted to meet this requirement.

Very nice quality
from Valencia, CA
These are my first time using these pastels and they're very wonderful. They are very pigmented and glide on the paper very smoothly. The cost is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. High quality and the colors are beautiful.
Rembrandt is the best
By Suzy Q
from New Orleans
With Rembrandt you never get those little hard grains of sand (or whatever) that mess up your smooth strokes or even tear paper. The colors are brilliant pigments. The box is the perfect organizer

The colors in this set are perfect for landscapes, portraits, and pet portraits as well as wildlife! And I, personally, prefer the half sticks! I've used them on velour paper as well as sanded paper and love the results.

Colour in this piece of art is shaved pastel
Rembrandt pastels are a part of any painting I create. They spread well, have a very good color selection, are not too hard or too soft...I just really enjoy using them.
