Sakura Nouvel Carre Artist Pastels are designed for the student and professional. The square shape is versatile for all work.They are semi hard for minimal “finger-powdering” and the elimination of paper wrapping. Carre Pastels are water soluble and are lightfast rated. Pure pigments produce vivid, brilliant colours.
When used in together with other media such as water colors, ink colors or acrylic colors, offer many interesting possibilities for creative activity. Apply directly to paper and then blend by rubbing with a finger of stiff brush.
Pastels are ideal for exercises designed to develop colour awareness in children. Drawings which have not been fixed should be framed under glass to prevent smudging. Remarkable effects can be produced by drawing onto wet paper. Pastels do not require a high degree of manipulative skill and can be stored and distributed in the art classroom.
