The “Kyoto Seki” pastel series was created by Japan’s oldest manufacturer of soft pastels to replicate the traditional colors and magical light of Kyoto. If you have been using commercial, mass-manufactured pastels packed with chalks and other dusty fillers, this medium will be a revelation. Carefully handmade in small batches by artisans attuned to the way climate can affect pigment ratio and drying time, these pastels achieve the greatest saturation of color, allowing the artist to explore the pigments’ full character.
18 small handmade colored pastels, each approximately 1” long
Box is 3.5" x 3.5"
