Via Jan Olsen, at Observe Closely, here are the links to online color charts for many of our favorite pastel brands.  I order the hand made charts from Dakota, but sometimes online is just handy.

New Grays

 Homemade New Grays

I have been making new pastel sticks. These are mostly from easel tailings that I collect over time and reconstitute with water.  I make tints by adding white, and I also stretch the recipe with whiting. What results are grays made just to my own liking. Next, I will be manufacturing pure hues from fresh pigments.
