PASTEL IS PURE PIGMENT, THE SAME PIGMENT USED IN MAKING ALL FINE ART PAINTS. IT IS THE MOST

PERMANENT OF ALL MEDIA WHEN APPLIED TO CONSERVATION GROUND AND PROPERLY FRAMED.

PASTEL HAS NO LIQUID BINDER THAT MAY CAUSE OTHER MEDIA TO DARKEN,FADE,YELLOW,CRACK

OR BLISTER WITH TIME. PASTELS FROM 16TH CENTURY EXIST TODAY,AS FRESH AS THE DAY THEY

WERE PAINTED!

TODAY,PASTEL PAINTINGS HAVE THE STATURE OF OIL & WATERCOLOUR AS A FINE ART MEDIUM.

MANY OF OUR MOST RENOWNED LIVING ARTISTS HAVE DISTINGUISHED THEMSELVES IN PASTEL &

HAVE ENRICHED THE ART WORLD WITH THIS FINE ART MEDIUM.
