View Full Version : Sennelier color chart - anywhere?

06-27-2007, 05:06 AM

I can't remember if I got a Sennelier color chart a few years back when I got a whole set of the old color charts from Dakota. Does anyone know of where a basic color chart might be available for these? I have the Mount Vision, Schminke, Unison, and a few others, but now it looks like Dakota has some blank ones that can be handcolored, and they are $3 apiece, which I might get if I can't find a basic one. Any help is appreciated.

There is the online one at DickBlick...

Oooo, and this one is even better, it's a PDF. I believe this one is for soft pastels.

And this one for oil pastels...

Art stores that sell Senneliers will have free charts. My art store has a stack of them available for free. Do you want me to pick one up and send it to you?

Hi Shari:

That would be very helpful. I looked in one of only real art stores here in the Kansas City general area, Creative Coldsnow's in Overland Park, and they didn't have any but they do have openstock Senneliers - we poor little artists here just have Creative Coldsnow's and Ultrecht for real art wares. I did save the pdf file that was listed in the other response, but I'm trying to keep my hardcopies in my Dakota binder, and then also mark on the hardcopies when I get a new stick - that way, I don't wind up buying the same stick over and over again (like I was guilty of before ;) ). Also, if you want, you could maybe send me a few, and I can give some out to other MAPS members, and in return, I could send you a piece or two of illustration board or masonite coated with a few coats of gesso and an absorbent ground/pumice mixture with nice little uneven brush marks in it if you're interested in giving it a try and you like more uneven surfaces. This is a surface I started making for watercolor underpaintings that is based off Kim Casebeer's matte medium/pumice ground preparation that she does her paintings on. I really like it for the watercolor, and I've started using it a lot. PM me if you want and we can set this exchange up. :)
