Rembrandt pastels are unsurpassed in their purity and intensity. They are made from the highest quality pure pigments and are ground in an extra-fine kaolin clay binder to ensure that they have no hard bits or sharp edges. Full sticks measure 2-3/4" long × 7/16" diameter (70 mm × 11 mm), and are paper-wrapped. The landscape set includes more blues and greens. The portrait set includes more earth and flesh tones.
