UNISON

unison
A unique hand rolled pastel from Northumberland, England which excells at blending and features intense colours.

Unison pastels have a fantastic texture which results from them being hand rolled rather than extruded. The pastels are based on traditional pigments such as cadmiums, cobalts and natural and synthetic earths as these pigments have stood the test of time.

Unison’s pastels contain very little binder, making them very soft and smooth. They are mixed to meticulous recipes and are based on traditional pigments such as cadmiums, cobalts and natural and synthetic earths.

Sticks vary slightly due to the hand-making process.

Unison Colour began in the early 1980s when Artist John Hersey found that mass-produced, factory made pastels simply did not offer the qualities he was looking for, and so he decided to make his own. Today they hand produce over a quarter of a million sticks a year.
