Working with Schminckes finest extra soft pastels leads you back to the origin of colour and is a real painting experience rather than simple drawing. They contain only the purest medium fine ground Artists pigments, which are in the highest possible concentration. Contrastingly, the binding agent content, is kept to a minimum, which ensures a stable compound. In order to guarantee the highest quality it is necessary to manufacture Schmincke pastels using special recipes which avoid the use of machinery during manufacturing.
