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.
Portrait II, Set of 60 - When the Portrait Society of America asked Terry Ludwig Pastels to be an elite vendor at its annual conference, Terry rose to the challenge. Working with an exclusive panel of noted portrait artists, he created an authoritative set of 60 portrait hues as an addition to his Basic Portrait 30-piece set.
