Diane Townsend, a practicing pastel artist in New York City, created two lines of soft pastels that give artists the opportunity to employ a variety of techniques.

Soft Form offers a specialty range of dark hues and off blacks as well as classic and exotic colors. Soft Form pastels are formed by hand into one-of-a-kind sticks.

Terrages were originally developed to meet the desires of pastel painter Wolf Kahn. Pumice blended into these pastels, "opens" the surface of the paper by ploughing through its finish, creating a toothy surface upon which to transfer abundant color. Terrages are made in substantial rectangular slabs.

Both styles are made from the purest pigments, and neither is combined with chalks or fillers.
