Unison Soft Pastel Half Stick Starter Sets include a selection of professional quality, handmade soft pastels covering a broad spectrum of colours. These sets contain half stick pastels, which are smaller than Unison's full size pastels. Each pastel is handmade in the UK and offers vibrant colour with a smooth texture.
The Half Stick Pastels in these Unison sets have been chosen and curated by the company's founder and artist John Hersey. Each set contains a selection of pastels that covers a broad mixing palette, making them ideal for any pastel beginners or those looking to try out Unison pastels! These pastels have a buttery texture that lends itself well to easy blending and smooth colour laydown. As they are made using only the finest artists pigments they deliver intense colour with excellent lightfastness. Use these pastels alone or combine with mediums like watercolour, charcoal pencil and oils. They are also water soluble.
Each set is presented in a professional blue box with Unison branding. Available in sets of 16, 30, 63 and 120.
The colours are rich. Purples are very dark. Some are lovely and oily others feel more brittle. My favourites so far. Would like to try the botanicals and the portraiture Bernadine O'Sullivan (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 18 Dec 2019
