Frustrated with the lack of color options available and few choices for very soft pastels, Terry Ludwig began experimenting with formulas for making his own pastels in 1995. His goal was to create a vast array of color in pastels that were uniformly soft across all densities of hue.
The results were more than 500 intense colors, some of which are unavailable elsewhere, in a unique square pastel.
Each pastel is crafted with a broad range of pigments by hand with minimal natural binders. This renders a highly concentrated, velvety pastels. The square shape delivers thick, broad strokes or thin, precise lines where necessary.-ﾠIndividual pastels measure approximately 1-1/2" x 1/2" x 1/2". Because each pastel is handcrafted, the size and shape may vary slightly.
Maggie Price Grays, Set of 30 - Maggie Price explained it well when she wrote, "This is a set of 30 pastel sticks, five values each of six colors of gray. Not black-and-white gray, but blue-gray, purple-gray, green-gray, red-gray, teal-gray and yellow/brown-gray... colors I have searched for, wanted and never had until now."
