A Sennelier extra soft pastel is composed of high quality pure pigment grounded with a natural transparent binder.
The high quality composition of “à l’écu” pastels is the result of a perfect balance between binder and pigment. For gradient shades, increasing amounts of mineral fines are added, ultimately tending towards white.
There is a good mix of colours for general use and I would recommend them to beginners and artists alike. Betty Stiles (Pinner, United Kingdom) on 9 May 2013

A nice set of soft pastels with a good selection of colours. Easy to apply and blend. Have used pastels for many years and these must rank my favourite. They were a lot cheaper in a local store but Ken Bromley, who is my preferred supplier, did price match. Adrian Gilbert (Livingston, United Kingdom) on 13 Jan 2015
