Schmincke Soft Pastel
With 55 pure hues, each having an additional shade, plus three tints, as well as other, special colours, including metallic gold and silver, extra dark colours, and gradations of neutral grey, the whole range amounts to 299 colours.
The letters assigned to each colour correspond to variations of the base hue. Thus, for colour number 018 (burnt sienna), 018B is the hue plus black, 018D is the pure hue, and 018H, M, and O are the hue plus increasing proportions of white.
The manufacturer recommends that finished pieces be treated only very sparingly with fixative, if at all, due to the sensitivity of the surface.
