Premier Nupastel® Hard Pastels

About this Pencil

Just Right

They’re tougher than traditional soft pastels, but maintain the same rich, creamy pigments needed for superior blending and shading. Artists of all expertise levels can benefit from these pastels, especially those interested in illustration or tightly rendered drawings. Because they can be used wet or dry, it’s like a two-for-one deal-- mix them with water or odorless mineral spirits to create cool effects.

Tip for the taking:Creating detail in opaque media

View All Tips »

I am often asked how I create fine lines in pastel using with only a blunt stick. Because pastel is an opaque medium, I have 2 options. I can either attempt to draw a fine line or I can draw a broad line and then chisel into it with the negative space. Thinking about drawing with negative space can help your drawing skills and your compositions.
