Soft pastels are popular with everyone from professional artists right down to young children. It's easy to see their appeal: they let you apply pigment straight onto the surface without a brush, so they're wonderfully immediate, and you can smudge or blend them simply using your fingers. From artist-quality Sennelier soft pastels to excellent-value packs from the likes of Rembrandt and our Own Brand pastels, you should find something here to fit your needs and budget.
