Rembrandt Artists' Soft Pastels are made from the best quality, pure pigments finely ground in an extra-fine Kaolin clay binder. They have a velvety smooth softness and are thoroughly blended and uniform, without hard bits or sharp edges that could cause shiny spots or scratches during application. Each round pastel stick is paper-wrapped and printed with the color name and number, the price series letter, the lightfastness rating and the number suffix indicating whether it is a shade (.3), pure tone (.5), or a tint (.7, .8, .9, etc.).
Sets contain full-stick pastels except where noted. Wood box sets feature sturdy, beautiful boxes with molded foam inserts to protect the pastel sticks, making them both beautiful and practical.
Warning: Rembrandt Pastels contain a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer.
