Rembrandt® Pastels are the world's most popular soft pastel, possessing unsurpassed glow, purity, and intensity. They are made from the best quality, finely ground pure pigments in an extra-fine Kaolin clay binder. The result is a velvety smooth softness in every color.Each rich color is thoroughly blended and uniform, end to end. Rembrandt® Pastels contain no hard bits or sharp edges which could cause shiny spots or scratches during application. Rembrandt® Pastels are hand-checked throughout production to ensure artists the consistency in texture, color, and working qualities that they've come to depend on.Each round Rembrandt® Pastel stick has a transparent label printed with information valuable to the artist: the color name and number, the number suffix indicating whether it is a pure tone (.5), a shade (.3), or a tint (.7, .8, .9), and the lightfastness rating. Lightfastness is especially important when using pastels, since hey're practically pure pigment and very susceptible to light.
