NeoPastels are a top quality pastel that adheres without producing the slightest trace of dust. Colourfast shades maintain exceptional covering properties and have soft textures that allow for easy colour mixing. Use on textured paper and fix with acrylic spray when finished for best results. A selection of 96 colours is available in the full range.
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.
