Townsend Pastels are hand made pastels for artists. Based on an 15 century Italian formula, Townsend has spent the last 30 years refining the formula to create a smooth, flowing pastel that is as rich in pigment as possible. Choose from three types of pastels; Soft Form Pastels, Terrages, a larger pastel with added pumice which enables the artist to open up the surface of paper and work in more color, and lastly our new Thin Line Pastel, a pencil-like pastel perfect for detail and delicate work. Pastels are available individually and in box sets through your local art store.
