Rembrandt pastels are made from the purest pigments mixed with the finest quality kaolin. They are extremely popular among artists of every skill level. They do not fall apart, crumble, or powder as easily as many other brands. Colors are intense and offer optimal lightfastness. No heavy metal pigments are used- no cadmium, lead, or cobalt. Rembrandt pastels have a firm texture, making them ideal for use when a hard line or detail is needed.
This set was put together with landscape work in mind. Of course, it makes a great set for just about any subject.
