438 Van Dyke Brown Extra Soft Pastel
It took over 3 years, around the end of the 19th century, to formulate the Sennelier range of extra soft pastels a l'ecu and thus to create one of the world's largest chromatic range of soft pastels. The range has evolved over the years, but the heart of it's design remains unchanged.
A Sennelier soft pastel is a high quality pure pigment finely ground with a natural binder. The high quality composition is the result of the perfect balance between binder and pigment. For graduated shades, increasing amounts of white are added to the original pigment.
The manufacturing process does not involve any compression and the pastels are dried naturally in open space.
Whilst we try very hard to give accurate colour representation by taking photos of the actual Extra Soft Pastels in their packets and end on, adjacent to their colour neighbours to give you a better feel for the tones, computer monitors and phone screens can change the tones slightly. Therefore picture is for representation only.
