- A selection of as many soft pastels that you have.
These brands are all good quality pastels: Unison, Sennelier, Schminke, Jackson’s, Winsor & Newton, Daler Rowney, Inscribe (economy).
In a selection of different colours other than white.
You can buy this is pads or separate sheets to be cut to size. Canson Mi-Teintes is my favoured brand. If you are feeling flush you might like to try pastel card, which is more expensive and has a texture similar to very fine sandpaper.
