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 bit pricey but actually they are well worth the money. these pastels are soft and easy to work with and not as messy as some pastels.The colour range is very good. Judith Marlor (Bolton, United Kingdom) on 23 Jun 2014
