La Maison du Pastel has launched new line of “Petits Roché”, a reduced-selection of half-stick pastels. They are available to date in 3-piece and 12-piece sets, and a further 36-piece set should be available in the spring of 2012. The 3-piece sets come as “Discovery”, “Portrait” or “Landscape” sets, and if you are like me and would like to try these famous pastels this might be a good deal. If you would like to order go to their website and check under Contact how and where you can order. La Maison du Pastel team, refreshed by Margaret, are also in the process of developing an online shop. To find out more about these pastels you can read one of the older posts about Henry Roche pastels.
