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.

Sennelier Soft Pastels
from Diamondhead, MS.
I have started using Sennelier products recently and love the soft buttery feeling of blending them on paper and using water to use as background. I feel I am using the best product to produce art.

So, have read about these forever; but could not believe pastels could be so different. They are.Purchased a half tray to try them - and I will be getting the full set.If you have hesitated because of price like me, well don't. They are worth it.
some difficulties in getting my car loaded had to call
SENNELIER PASTELSIt happens very often that the sticks instead of being soft are dried out and hardand when you BUY a box of 500 you cannot check them all and it's only much later that you discover the fact
Gotta love the intensity
By Studio D
from Philadelphia, PA
The only thing I don't love about these pastels is their fragility. BUT it is the lack of excess binders that makes the colors so intense! Pure pigment and a joy to blend. They also can keep a line even though they're soft.
Happy to purchase online!
from Central Oregon - Bend
Sennelier pastels are a great value and a good price. Other brands are bigger, softer, more expensive but not much better for the art that I do.
Best soft pastels
