This Unison Soft Pastel Botanical 18 Set contains 18 colours suitable for botanical pastel painting. Each of Unison's soft pastels is handmade in the UK using only the finest artists pigments to ensure professional quality.
These colours have been hand selected by the Unison colour team and complement the sets of 18 in the Unison Soft Pastel Starter Sets and Unison Soft Pastel Landscape Sets. Unison pastels have a smooth, buttery texture which makes for easily colour application and blending. The artists quality pigments used in their manufacture ensure that these pastels have optimum lightfastness and deliver the most vibrant colour. Use these pastels alone or as a part of mixed media pieces - they are watersoluble and can be combined with other mediums including watercolour, pencil, charcoal and oils.
This set is presented in a natural style craft paper box with Unison branding.
Some are softer and oilier than others, must be to do with pigment. Pink for example is soft and oily which is lovely. Green is a harder pastel and more crunchy when used. Adapt pressure accordingly. Overall great colours. Bernadine O'Sullivan (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 28 Jan 2020
