Unison Colour hand made soft pastels are second to none. In their subtlety and intensity of colour, their fluency and responsiveness to touch and in their delicacy and robustness, Unison Colour Soft Pastels aspire to perfection.
Unison Colour is based in the Northumberland National Park. The business began in the early 1980s, when artist John Hersey found that mass produced, factory made pastels simply did not offer the qualities he was looking for. He began an inquiry, to see whether, with the pigments available, he could construct some kind of mirror to the magic of colour. Unison Colour Soft Pastels are the result.
Despite manufacturing over half a million individual sticks a year, the pastels are still completely hand made and retain all the qualities of the originals. They are mixed to John’s meticulous recipes and are based on traditional pigments such as cadmiums, cobalts and natural and synthetic earths.
The difference in the manufacturing process, hand rolling rather than extrusion, gives Unison Colour Soft Pastels a unique texture, delivering a consistency of response across the colour spectrum that is unmatched and loved by artists.
There are nearly 400 colours ranging from subtle greys and earth colours to brilliant reds, blues, greens and yellows.
The pastels are supplied in Mixed, Portrait and Landscape colours in boxes of 8, 18, 36 and 72 colours, but are also available individually. The pastels come in three sizes - standard, large and half sticks.
