Description

Sennelier Soft Pastels were first made by Gustave Sennelier for Edgar Degas in 1900, and they were subsequently used by Cézanne, Gauguin, Monet and Modigliani.

  • Now as then, they are given the very best treatment: hand-formed from the highest-quality pure pigment and the finest chalk with a natural transparent binder, and air-dried in moulds rather than compressed.
  • In return, they’ll bring you amazing results: wonderfully soft, outstandingly bright, lightfast and water-soluble.

They come well-protected in foam-lined, sturdy cardboard boxes. Sennelier Soft Pastel Half-Stick Sets mean you can sample a wider variety of colours.

Also available as:

Sennelier Soft Half Pastel Set of 40

Sennelier Soft Half Pastel Set of 80

Sennelier Soft Half Pastel Set of 20

Q&A (2)
Q Hello, Can I buy SENNELIER PARIS COLLECTION SOFT HALF PASTEL SET OF 120 ASSORTED COLOURS in one of cass art branches, please? And what about price? Will it be the same? If yes for how long? Thank you.
A

The Sennelier Paris Collection Soft Half Pastel Set of 120 is availabel to buy from all six of our London shops, although we always recommend calling your chosen shop first to check they have it in stock to avoid any dissapointment. 

They will be the same price as they are online. 

Q Hi, do you need to "fix" the Sennelier soft pastels after use to stop them smudging etc.?
A

Yes, if you are looking to preserve your drawing you will need to use a fixative suitable for pastel work. Winsor and Newton's Artists' Transparent Fixative is great or this. http://www.cassart.co.uk/winsor_newton/winsor_newton_artists_fixative_transparent_400ml.htm

17th September 2016 Reviewed by Margaret Jerome These soft pastels place colour exactly where you want it at one stroke. Only slight pressure is needed to apply a mark making the process feel more like painting with a brush. The colour range in this box is broad and all you need for an outdoor (or studio) painting session as they blend well to create various shades of each colour provided. The box is lightweight. I am completely happy with this product.

29th July 2016 Reviewed by Anne Weston Senellier are some of the finest soft pastels on the market. They are extremely soft for any one who hasn't used them before but they give superb results as they contain very high levels of pigment.
A joy to use.

27th December 2014 Reviewed by Dawn Cowan I knew what I was buying before I placed the order - my favourite soft pastels. Particularly like the intensity of the dark colours, as really good darks can be hard to find. I have been using Sennelier pastels for some time and have found that they are best on the Senelier Pastel card, which has a really good 'tooth' to hold the very soft pastel and dosn't need to be fixed.

15th December 2014 Reviewed by Angela Gilbert Gorgeous mouth watering colours. Half sticks are more sturdy and not as easy to break. This helps to overcome the issue of crumblingwhich is the only issue which tends to arise with Sennelier. A compact box for easy portability to classes or work outside. You will need some hard pastels to work alongside these, pencils or conte sticks for details as these are very soft pastels.
