Paul's statement: I have used pastels for many years. Many of the commercial set colors were colors I never used. This got me started in pastel making. Fifteen years of tinkering and I feel I am approaching my goal... a big, richly pigmented buttery soft pastel that is fun to use. I use them every day! Painting with pastels is a wonderful experience... if you are using great materials. My pastels are softer than Rembrandt and Unison, won't crush to pieces like Sennelier, and have a more brilliant and interesting palette than Schmincke. Made from permanent non toxic pigments at a very reasonable affordable price. Join other fine pastel artists and give my pastels a try!
