Terry Ludwig Soft Pastel Sets

Frustrated by the lack of color options and choices for very soft pastels, Terry Ludwig began experimenting with formulating his own pastels in 1995. His goal was to create a vast array of color in pastels that were uniformly soft across all densities of hue. The result was the development of intense colors, in unique hues that are unavailable in other pastel lines.

These hand-crafted pastels contain a broad range of pigments and minimal natural binders, rendering highly concentrated, velvety pastels. The square shape delivers thick, broad strokes and thin, precise lines.

Intense Darks, the hallmark of the line, features bright acidic greens, a broad range of intense reds, and eggplant purples that have been described as "the new black."

Individual pastels measure approximately 1½" × ½" × ½" (38 mm × 13 mm × 13 mm). Because each pastel is hand-crafted, their size and shape may vary slightly.

Cobalt Blues — This small set includes 10 values of Cobalt Blue, from near pure pigment to nearly white — a "must-have" for warming up your skies, water, and still life paintings.

Sunset Colors — This set of 14 sticks includes a 12-step gradation from warm yellow to warm red, plus two shades of cool red.

Maggie Price Grays, Set of 30 — Maggie Price explained it well when she wrote, "This is a set of 30 pastel sticks, five values each of six colors of gray.
