Renesans dry pastels are hand-made. They dry in a fully natural way and are made of top quality raw materials, including kaolin and the best dry pigments.
Pastel painting requires the use of dry, colourful, chalk-like sticks - without any liquid painting agents. Those are applied onto a rough surface. The pastels are composed of painting pigments with chalk, clay, or plaster for binding, which provides a soft, smooth, and pigmented dusting stroke. An adequately created pastel offers freshness, smoothly penetrating colours, no gloss, and a bright surface.
