Gioconda 8100 Hard Pastels have a square cross-section giving them a rectangular shape and this allows for easy cover of large areas.
The high quality and concentration of the pigments used combined with the perfect blending and dispersal of these pigments, along with a high lightfastness gives the artwork produced a superb durability.
The Gioconda 8100 Hard Pastels produce a fine, smooth and full colour stroke without the need of hard pressure
