Townsend Terrages Pastels

Diane Townsend Terrages pastels were originally developed to meet the desires of pastel painter Wolf Kahn. Each contains finely ground pumice stone that plows into the paper, creating a toothy surface on which to transfer complex layers of color and create a luminous sensation of depth and space.

Terrages are formed into substantial rectangular slabs that can accept a more forceful application without crumbling. Made from the purest pigments available, they contain no chalks or fillers. Each pleasing, one-of-a-kind pastel measures approximately 1-3/4" long × 1" wide × 1/4" thick (44 mm × 25 mm × 6 mm). Individual colors are available in several shades. 

Newly formulated Terrages Pastels adhere better and produce less dust than previous formulations. Now heavier and stickier, each pastel incorporates a binder and less pumice than before. This reduces the amount of dust released into the air, onto fingers, and onto other surfaces — extending the life of the pastels and making them more economical to use. Metallic and pearlescent colors are especially improved by the new formulation.
