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 Pastel Sets:
As I learn more about pastels, I realized the need for the more expensive supplies for this expressive medium. But I still needed to budget my costs, so I picked the smallest, basic set of the most affordable fine brand. They are so rich and creamy and blend beautifully. I do like to blend, but I also want to add some luscious darks to my set. Good stuff.

I love the depth of color with these -- I am only sad when they crumble a little too much and l lose some of the pastel!
These pastels seem to be the best all over in this catagory

I bought the sennelier plein air half stick set for a workshop. They are so soft and creamy. Very vibrant colors. They are a joy to use and the price so reasonable..
Truly "soft" Pastels
By Grand Ma D
from Los Osos, CA
While I am new to this medium I find this brand very high in pigment its hard to control the dust. Probably the paper has something to do with it too. I am in the experiment stage at this point so will try different papers and pastels until they work together.

Excellent set of very high quality pastels. It also comes very well packed so is a great set to use for travelling with pastels. Blicks had the best price based on my research however I did pick it up in the US because the shipping to Canada is always very expensive.
While Sennelier Soft Pastels were originally created for Edgar Degas, these beautiful100% pure pigment sticks are available for those who want brilliant color and velvety smooth lay-down.
