Crayons & Pastels
Pastels have been around since the 6th century and have been used by some of the worlds most famous artists. Although they look like chalk, pastels are in fact softer and smoother. They are extremely versatile and can be used to produce intensely vibrant colours as well as soft subtle shades of pale tones. Pastels can be blended easily for stunning results and can be used on nearly all types of paper and card. At Spotlight, you can buy collection boxes of pastels and half pastels suitable for artists of all ages in our art supplies section.

What Are Crayons and What Are They Used for?
Crayons are popular colouring and drawing tools, often made from materials such as chalk, charcoal and coloured wax. They are used by adults as well as children - this for the creation of artwork as well as colouring.
There are different types of crayons too - this depends on the materials used to make the crayons. One type of crayon is the watercolour crayon, which is water-soluble. Aside from this, there is also the grease pencil or Chinese marker, a common graph pencil in the United Kingdom.
Children and adults use crayons for many reasons. Firstly, adults can create some unique artwork with crayons, which they cannot achieve with other tools such as paints and normal colouring pencils. Parents often choose crayons for their children too, since crayons are far less messy than paint.
What Are Pastels and What Are They Used for?
Pastels are often confused with crayons, since they look and create something similar. However, pastels are a specific subcategory of crayons.
To be classified as a pastel, the pastel must have a square shape. It is usually made from a powdered pigment and a binder, which ensures pastels create a remarkable effect when used in art.
Pastels are not new though, because this type of art medium has been used for many years. The use of pastels can be traced back to the Renaissance, where many artists used them as their main tools.
