Re: semi-hard Mungyo or Richeson.


I use Nupastels and find they are excellent. There are about 4 colors that fade badly. The following link is the most comprehensive lightfast test of Nupastels I've found online. The author has a photo clearly showing which colors are fugitive.


You could also look at Cretacolor for a hard pastel. Amongst all of the brands that offer harder pastels, theirs has the best reputation for lightfastness. I happily use them as well.

Once your art supplies arrive, have fun and play with them. And pose questions to this forum. Post some artwork. There are plenty of kind folks here who can offer helpful suggestions on a number of topics and encourage you on in your art journey.
