Pastels are coloured sticks used in drawing and painting. There are dry pastels (soft or hard) and oil pastels (or wax). Our watercolour soft pastels are bright and ready to use for any drawing activity with kids. They can be used with fingers, or a slightly damp brush for a watercolour finish, on a paper support. The pastel edges help create precise lines and moves smoothly over the paper.
