Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencil Tins
Faber-Castell's Pitt Pastel Pencils are very suitable for lines, shading, and delicate color transitions, and also for extended areas. Use them for sketches, studies, portraits, still-life and landscape drawings. They give a smooth flow of color without being used up too rapidly. Colours are rich in pigment, allowing dense shading. Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils do not change on fixing or exposure to light.
Wood-cased Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils do not dirty the fingers, and the leads are free of oils. They can easily be wiped to merge areas of colours, which means that they must then be fixed to protect the drawing. Pencils are pre-sharpened. Individual light fastness ratings are printed on each pencil's casing.

FAQs about Pastel Supplies
What Are Pastel Colours?
Pastels belong to a pale family of hues that, in the HSV colour space, have a high value and low saturation. Pastel colours have a softer look than their bright, more saturated colours and are typically described as “soft,” “washed out,” or “pale".
How To Layer Soft Pastels?
A touch of pastel may be placed on a finger and lightly tapped into an area when a light scent of colour is desired in a specific location. A workable fixative can also be used to lay down a pastel layer ahead of subsequent pastel layers. Experiment with lightly scratching the top layer with a blunt tool to reveal underlying layers if heavy.
How To Use Oil Pastels?
Use a soft brush to apply a generous layer of oil pastel color, then add another colour on top. Continue layering and blending until you reach your desired appearance. When merging and mixing, don't be afraid to go deep - your fingers are your brushes, and you may blend and mix to create magic on the page.
