A Sennelier extra soft pastel is composed of high quality pure pigment grounded with a natural transparent binder. The high quality composition of Extra Soft pastels is the result of a perfect balance between binder & pigment. For gradient shades, increasing amounts of mineral fines are added, ultimately tending towards white. The exceptional brightness is the result of the pigment & of the natural mineral fines discovered by Sennelier in 1905 & that have been used ever since. The manufacturing process of the Sennelier cylindrical pastel does not compress the paste & the pastel dries naturally in open air. The life span of a piece of work is guaranteed by the quality of the pastel, but also by the quality of the substrate. If a lot of overlapping is performed, it is preferable to fix between layers. Avoid, however, fixing the final layer too heavily, as the original vibration of tones will be lost.
