What is pastel? Pastels as a painting medium is very popular with painters and becoming more so among collectors and the general public. Pastels are sticks of powdered pigment compressed and bound together with a non-greasy binder. They are known for the bright beautiful colors which can be blended and do not fade and are permanent when properly framed under glass.
