OLKI soft pastels are available in sets of 16 and 48 colours selected for special purposes: portraits, landscapes, life-drawing and general drawing. They are made of extra-fine pigments and binders for softer blending and smudging. At the same time chalks are firm enough to provide sharp lines where necessary.
OLKI pastels have natural soft colours and can successfully be used for landscape, still life or portrait drawing. Also they can be used for mixed media techniques with gouache, acrylic, waterclours or ink.
For OLKI pastels we’d recommend to use textured surfaces such as pastel paper, coated paper or fine sand paper. For mixed media techniques textured watercolour paper works best of all.
