Hard Pastels and Pastel Pencils

These are the less messy version of soft pastels that are produced by the pencil manufacturers and are sold either with a wood surround ( the pencils ) or as an uncovered stick of hard pigment ( sticks )

I used these several years ago when I was first looking at coloured ( wax type ) pencils, and did several

pictures in the pastel pencil medium.  I have returned to these in the Spring of 2010 and completed some pictures in just the pastels, and some mixing the medium with coloured pencil after fixing the pastel surface.
