Rembrandt Soft Pastels Singles – Royal Talens


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: ,

Known for generations as one of the world’s most popular soft pastel, Rembrandt pastels occupy a distinct and important segment of most pastel painters’ process.

Made in Holland by Talens, Rembrandt soft pastels provide you with 218 highly brilliant colours.

Rembrandt pastels are made from the purest pigments and mixed with the finest quality kaolin clay binder. No pigments containing heavy metals, such as cadmium, lead, and cobalt, are used in production which ensures that the pastels have no hard bits or sharp edges.  

These pastels are harder in consistency than many soft pastels, allowing for more control and definition in your painting. Full sticks measure 2-3/4″ long × 7/16″ diameter (70 mm × 11 mm). They are paper wrapped and are sold individually.


Rembrandt Soft Pastels are also available in Portrait Selection Sets, Landscape Selection Sets and General Selection Sets.

Artsavingsclub offers you the full range of Rembrandt colours in open stock.  These wonderful soft pastels exhibit a maximum degree of uniform softness and lightfastness and blend to an infinite range of colours with a velvety look. Rembrandt, being a leading brand of soft pastels, offer a wide and professional range of colours. These Pastels are available in whatever colour or mixed shade you are looking for, offering a maximum choice of colour.  Consisting of 42 pure colours (full tones), 40 intermediate shades going towards black and 121 intermediate shades towards white, Rembrandt has a comprehensive assortment of colours.

While not as hard as Carre pastels (extra hard pastels that are less brittle and produce less dust), and not as soft as some of the finishing pastels on the market, Rembrandts are known for their medium softness, their density and consistency. Often called “the workhorse” of the pastel category, this is specifically because of this density and medium touch.  Soft enough to easily release colour, but hard enough to draw a sharp line, keep an edge and build multiple layers, the versatility is nearly endless.

Crafted in the Netherlands on a very specialized small extrusion machine, these pastels are uniform in their shape and size and do not crumble, holding their shape.  The recipe varies based on the pigment used but is the most simple of any product in their range. Pure pigments, and just enough Kaolin clay to hold the pigment together, there is nothing more simple and nothing with as many possibilities as a pastel.

Because of the purity, and solubility of Kaolin clay, these pastels can be rendered into powder, allowing the artist to render a watercolour paint by just adding gum arabic, acrylic paints can be made by adding this to an acrylic binder, or an oil paint by mixing into a drying oil, like linseed or safflower oil.

Colour chart explanation:

The degree of lightfastness:

  • +++ = at least 100 years lightfast under museum conditions (157 colours)
  • ++ = 25 – 100 years lightfast under museum conditions (61 colours)
  • + = 10 – 25 years lightfast under museum conditions 0 = 0 – 10 years lightfast under museum conditions
  • The lightfastness of all these colours has been tested following ASTM Standards D4303

Each Rembrandt pastel has a unique code which makes the colour range easy to navigate:

  • The first three colour numbers are the colour indicator: 205 – Mars Violet (PR101 pigment code)
  • From there, the pure pigment is indicated with a 0.5 suffix: 205.5, therefore full shade.
  • As more white is added, the suffix number increases, depending on the colour, to 12.
    • .7-.12 = mixture with an increasing amount of white
  • As more black is added, the shades are indicated with lower numbers, all the way down to 0.2, which is the lowest value Rembrandt create, available in 15 new colours.
    • .2 and .3 = mixture with black
  • PY184/PY138 = pigments used

The versatility and ease of use of Rembrandt soft pastels have caused a resurgence in pastels as a mixed media since their composition makes them inter-mixable with many different materials.

  • Excellent colour release
  • Intense and pure colours
  • Good to the highest degree of lightfastness
  • Very high colouring power due to the high concentration of pigment
  • Free of pigments based on the metals lead, cadmium and cobalt
