Sakura Nouvel Carre Pastel Sets contain a range of pastels with ultra-fine pigments, ensuring excellent consistency and texture, and providing a brilliant working experience for creatives. The pastel sticks are a semi-hard square pastel which handle like a soft texture pastel and are very smooth to work with.
The square shape of Sakura Nouvel Carre Pastels is convenient for both detailed and sketch work, with the corners providing a sharp point for more detailed sections of your artwork and the broader side of the stick allowing for building up larger areas of colour.
Sakura Nouvel Carre Pastels are clean and easy to use, as they won’t crumble or powder in artists’ hands! Use the Nouvel Carre Pastels with other materials such as watercolours, ink, or acrylic paints to create unique mixed media works that will catch the eye. You can also experiment with drawing on wet paper for a variety of effects, as these pastels are water-soluble.
To use Sakura Nouvel Carre Pastels, apply directly onto paper, then blend if desired by rubbing with your finger of stiff brush. Pastel drawings which have not been fixed should be framed under glass to prevent any smudging.
Choose between a range of colour palettes and set sizes! Sakura Nouvel Carre Pastel Sets contain non-toxic pastels perfect for artists of every level.
