Schmincke Pastels O, Cold Grey
|Stock Level||Supplier SKU||Manufacturer SKU||Brand|
Schmincke Pastels are made of the purest medium fine ground pigments with minimum amounts of binding agent. They are created using high pressure to establish a firm compound, then dried at room temperature and finally finished off and labelled carefully by hand to avoid breakage. This time consuming and costly procedure is done to ensure the smoothness and homogenous qualities of each pastel. Schmincke Pastels measure approximately 2.64" long × 0.43" in diameter (67 mm × 11 mm) and have a rich, buttery texture. Schmincke Soft Pastels are available in 400 brilliants colours which have been classified in 80 rows with 5 colours each. Five (5) additional pearl lustre effect colours are also included in the range. The complete colour chart is available on the Schmincke website by clicking here.
Selected colours are available as a pure colour (D), or with one gradation towards black (B) and three graduations towards white (H, M, O) as indicated by the following image using Titanium Yellow as the example colour:
B — One graduation towards black.
D — Pure colour, no added black or white.

Schmincke Soft Pastels are sensitive, hence it is recommended they be treated with a light coating of fixative.
