Polychromos pastels contain the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed resistance to fading — and they're the only hard pastels with the lightfastness rating printed on every stick. Blend with fingers, stump, or paintbrush dipped in white spirit.
Colors lay down smoothly and provide excellent color transitions. Use the square-cross section to draw fine details with an edge, or shade extended areas with one face. Colors adhere easily to paper, card, wood, and stone. Gentle fixing is recommended.
