Welcome to dickblick
Sennelier uses only the purest pigments, mixed with minimal amounts of natural binders, in an exclusive formula that yields lightfast, water-soluble pastels. There is just enough binder to hold the pigment together as the pastels are formed by hand, placed in special molds, and allowed to air dry. No fillers or clays are used.
Sennelier soft pastels are highly concentrated and so soft that a gentle stroke will deliver a solid, powerful line of brilliant color. Sticks are 2½" long × ½" in diameter (64 mm × 13 mm).

Sennelier Pastels are available in a variety of gift boxes, from the economical half stick sets to more complete and specialized sets.

Comments about Sennelier Soft Pastels:
Very well pigmented product, some deep brilliant colors and soft for layering and mixing. Whole sticks tend to break and crumble.

Hard to match colors online
from Boston, MA
Sennelier pastels are the only ones I have used and I like that they are not too soft. However, it is hard to find the colors I want using the online swatches. It took me four tries to get the green I was looking for. I have bought about $30 worth of colors that I don't use or are duplicates of what I already had in my set. The swatches on the original boxed set are so small they are practically useless. I would gladly pay for a sample booklet of all the colors and their numbers!
Sennelier Soft Pastels - Paris set

from White Plains, NY
These pastels are so soft and creamy and just a dream to work with! Couldn't recommend them any higher!
Some of the best
from Vashon Island WA
I use these in encaustic and found them great, very pigmented and rich. The colour range is also perfect.
Sennelier Pastels: Best Neutrals / Greys in a Landscape
By Gretchen O
from Goodyear, AZ
When I need to create depth and add greys in the landscape, Senneliers Landscape set deliver. I have turned to them completely. You won't find many intense bright colors here, but the deep darks are wonderful. Mid-tones are perfect when you need to knock down an overly bright area. I love these. Only issue is having to unwrap them all before using. Wish the company would wrap only the bottom third or half.

Wonderfully soft blendable pastels
By Texture Fanatic
from St. Louis, MO
I just started buying individual Sennelier pastels from Blick to replinish the ones used up from the sets that I had originally bought. Plus some that I thought might come in handy. I first had bought the landscape set. Wonderful selection.
