Caring for Pastels - The rich, creamy pigments of pastels offer artists a look that seems painterly in their composition. Prismacolor Premier® NuPastels are perfect for achieving this, so you want to care for them as best you can.
You can store your pastels in a variety of different places though many artists prefer wooden drawers for a more elegant look. As with colored pencils, avoid leaving them in heat or direct sunlight.
Since many pastels only have an identification number on one end, some artists break their pastel into two pieces, putting the piece with the ID number away for safe keeping. When the other piece has worn out, they just reference the piece they saved.
Artists love Prismacolor Color Pencils and Prismacolor NuPastels. Share how you organize yours with #PencilPerfection or #PastelPerfection on Instagram.
