PITT pastel pencils have wax-free leads; drawings can be wiped just as with pastel crayons, so need to be fixed afterwards. The 60 bright colours contain a high proportion of pigment; they are highly light-fast and do not change colour appreciably when fixed. The compact pastel lead is perfect for hobby painters and professional artists, because it produces plenty of colour without being used up too fast.
PITT pastel pencils are particularly suitable for lines, hatching, and very fine colour transitions, but also for shading larger areas. They are useful for sketches and studies, portraits, still lifes and landscapes. In combination with traditional pastels.
PITT pastel pencils are excellent for elaborating details. Highlights and shadows can be added to a drawing with a pencil of slightly different shade. Particular details can be emphasized to attract attention.
PITT pastel pencils therefore offer many creative options, both alone and in conjunction with other material.
