Pastel painting has enjoyed great popularity for centuries, uniting both drawing and painting techniques to express creativity with an intense colour and vibrancy. Extra-fine pastels by Schmincke are as soft as velvet and silk with a particularly soft, consistent and intense colour application because of their precisely delicate formulation and traditional craftmanship, during every stage of production. Their extensive colour range allows limitless artistic possibilities, whether used in their pure form on specialist pastel paper or in mixed-media techniques on varying surfaces coated with dedicated pastel primers. Each Schmincke pastel is handmade with a minimum of binder and highly concentrated artist’s pigments with a maximum lightfastness.
The complete range includes 400 colour shades, divided into 75 colours which each have 5 grades: In addition to the pure colour (D), there is a black graduation (B) and 3 grades of white graduations (H, M, O). The balanced range is supplemented by a 10-step neutral grey series, 5 dark shades, gold, silver, 2 black shades, white and 5 special pearlescent shades for specific effects.

Paper is a fragile product, and our goal is to ensure it arrives to you safely. Extra packing will be used to ship it safely and although we do not charge for this, there may be an increase in logistics charges. We recommend that you consider purchasing a minimum of 5 sheets or pack quantities to both save on purchase price and shipping charges.
We aim to make the shipping charge as cost effective as possible and to ensure you receive your art supplies in good condition. Please review our complete Shipping Policy information from the link in the footer for more details.
