Pastel is a drawing technique that uses colored pigment sticks.
The percentage of the binder (glue or wax) is reduced to a minimum to ensure the adhesion of the pigments to the sheet.
The color is therefore pure and bright; this feature is enhanced by using more or less rough paper. To ensure greater adhesion of coloured powders to the paper, a fixative can be vaporized on the design, but it decreases the vivacity of the colours. A pastel design can be properly stored under glass to protect it from moisture and dust.Latest arrivals
