Soft Pastel Sets

by Rembrandt


Rembrandt Pastels are made from the best quality, finely ground pure pigments in an extra-fine Kaolin clay binder. The result is a velvety smooth softness in every color. Each rich color is thoroughly blended and uniform, end to end. Contain no hard bits or sharp edges which could cause shiny spots or scratches during application. Rembrandt Pastels are hand-checked throughout production to ensure artists the consistency in texture, color and working qualities that they've come to depend on.

Each round sull-sized stick has a transparent label imprinted with color name and number, number suffix indicating whether it is a pure tone (.5), a shade (.3), or a tint (.7, .8, .9), and lightfastness rating. Light fastness is especially important when using pastels, since they're practically pure pigment and very susceptible to light. About 70% of the Rembrandt Pastel line has the highest possible degree of lightfastness.

Rembrandt Pastel Sets come in cardboard boxed setswith molded foam inserts to protect pastel sticks. All sticks are full size unless specified half size.

I bought these to create backgrounds for my calligraphy work. They blend well and I am able to letter on top of them without using fixative. I am very satisfied with the colors and the quality.

I bought these to create backgrounds for my calligraphy work. They blend well and I am able to letter on top of them without using fixative. I am very satisfied with the colors and the quality.
Rated by: Lisa G. in Roseville, CA
Rembrant Soft Pastels are so easy to work with and the colors so vibrant. They don't chalk up and leave dust behind like some other pastels. More expensive than some, but worth the extra $$$!
Rated by: Debi B. in Riverside, CA
I have used Rembrandt before, and remember the ease of using them on the velour paper. Since I enjoy Illustrating animals on velour paper, I must use the best soft pastels. Rembrandt is the only brand I'd use!
Rated by: Patricia W. in Burlington, VT
These pastels were recommended by the instuctor in my college class. She said we could get others {meaning cheaper} but we wouldn't be satisfied. She was correct. These pastels are smooth and blend well. I did a lot of price research before I bought them from Mr Art and the prices, even with shipping and handling, compared very well with my local art stores.
Rated by: Brenda R. in Los Angeles, CA
I purchased these for my 7 year old daughter. She used them so much she is now on her second box. She says the colors are great and the pastels are easy to use. Her art work is vibrant and bright. I recommend these for the beginner and for the accomplished artist.
Rated by: Kirk P. in Chicago, IL
These pastels are perfect for the beginner or for the seasoned artist. They are not too hard or too soft, and the price is reasonable given the high quality.
Rated by: Thomas S. in Washington, DC
I'm a beginner and this is my first set of pastels. They are what I expected, but selection of colors in this "portrait assortment" is somewhat odd. I would have chosen very differently.
Rated by: Helen F. in Minden, NV
I start my pastel painting with these then use pastel pencils to do small detail then end the highlights with Senniel pastel to give it the punch. All are great
Rated by: Joie C. in Austin, TX
Lovely consistency and concentration of color!
