I've posted this link in a few threads to an interesting article on how a fellow artist tracked down the Henri Roche pastel shop in Paris. But, since not everone may have seen those threads, and it is an adventurous story, here is the link:

The pastels are available in the US at www.fineartstore.com But, they are very expensive.

If anyone tries them, let us know how they are.

Very interesting (and entertaining) article. Thanks for sharing it.

However, at approximately $16 a stick, I definitely won't be the first one in this forum to try them. I still cringe at paying 3-something for a Schminke :)

Peace,
Shane

Yep, these certainly are the most expensive pastels known to man or womankind - but I keep going to the website and checking out the color and the small set..............

Folks who know me figure I will have ordered it from Mike by Xmas day. Anyone taking any bets????

:D :evil: :eek: :D

Well, I certainly enjoyed the article, Bruce; although I'm not a pastellist, I may just have to drop by next time I'm in Paris -- I just love places like that! And the next time I have $1,400 burning a hole in my pocket, I might just have to buy one of those 96-stick sets... :rolleyes:
