Why Unison Colour?

Handmade

Made, labelled and packed completely by hand. No extrusion.

Highly Pigmented​

We use a high percentage of traditional pigments for the deepest colouration.

Lightfast

Colour that stands the test of time.

Soft and Smooth

With careful use of binder, our pastels are often described as 'smooth as butter', and need no encouragement to leave their mark.

Blendable

Because we use the best ingredients, our pastels have superior blending capabilities, used wet, or dry.

What a Performer!

In Ireland we have a saying: ‘Tus maith, leath na hoibre’ – or, ‘A good start is half the work’. So true in the case of animal art.  Getting a good look at your subject and getting a good reference is often not only half the work, but also half the fun!
