Applications: Velvety, luminous pastels with a high pigment concentration and covering texture allow you to apply large quantities of opaque and coloured material, in strokes or as blocks of colour, blended, in washes, in batik, stencil or sgraffito. The form and colour of the medium will determine the final look of the work. Can be used on almost any support (tinted paper, tracing paper or smooth paper, canvas, wood, glass, leather) as well as on dry undercoats such as ink, acrylic, water-based and oil-based paints.
The Neopastels are cylindrical pastels. They possess a soft and velevety texture that glides on to surfaces. They are wax based and not watersoluble. They can be thinned out using solvents such as white spirit or Turpentine, making them really versatile and easy to use over regular oil paint. Neopastels can be applied in a number of ways: dip a brush into solvent, apply neopastel to the brush and paint with the colour in thin stains and washes, or draw it on dry to create colour-saturated marks, or etch marks into already applied wet oil colour, leaving behind a deposit of subtle colour. The sticks are flat ended so you can apply broad marks and thin marks (using the edge of the end of the stick). Unlike regular pastel they will not crumble or powder. There are 96 colour in the range which are all classified as having excellent lightfastness. A beautiful wax crayon pastel that has great coverage and can be used for both expressive drawing and painting techniques.
