More about pastels - A pastel is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. The color effect of pastels is closer to the natural dry pigments than that of any other process. Pastels have been used by artists since the Renaissance, and gained considerable popularity in the 18th century, when a number of notable artists made pastel their primary medium. Soft pastels are the most widely used form of pastel. The sticks have a higher portion of pigment and less binder, resulting in brighter colors.
