Sennelier extra-soft pastels are widely regarded as one of the finest soft pastels available. It took over three years, at the turn of the 20th Century, to formulate the Sennelier range of Extra Soft Pastels "à l'écu" and thus to create one of the largest chromatic range of pastels in the world. In total there are 525 colours for pastel artists to choose from.
The sets available contain an assorted colour spectrum of HALF STICK pastels and there are also sets dedicated to landscape and portrait works of art.
Half sticks, as the name suggests are half the length of regular soft pastels making them ideal for those who want more colours in a smaller quantity.
