Pastelliste, professional brushes for use with soft pastel and charcoal.
Sennelier puts all its expertise at the service of pastellist with Le Pastelliste. Le Pastelliste brushes are made from a very soft hair which captures pigment and allows for shading, dusting and blocking-in areas.
Rosemary: ‘I’ve designed this new range to be an inexpensive blending brush. The Smooshing Brush is made from a blend of different grades of badger hair.
I’ve packed the hairs into the ferrule really tightly to create a dense brush, which will be firm to the touch, but still flexible. The beauty of the domed shape allows for a multitude of brush strokes.
Sometimes known as a smudger, a tinter or a blender, this versatile brush can be used in all mediums and is available in sizes small, medium and large. In decorative painting, you would tend to use it as a dry brush and for softening edges. But this brush is a good little all rounder and useful in any medium. For Oil and Acrylic painters, if you load this brush full of pigment, it’ll be great for your seascapes, stippling, clouds, highlights and shading. For watercolourists, practice loading with dry pigment to get a similar effect.’
