d'uVA Chroma Coal Heat Fixable Pastels

Has anyone tried out these pastels? Supposedly you don't need to use spray fix but can heat fix your drawings in the oven. There's not much of a color selection though. I just want to know what the pastels are like and does heat fixing work well.

Re: d'uVA Chroma Coal Heat Fixable Pastels


D'uva has several type of heat fix art media - lithocoal, watercolors, oil, and I think sumi ink. I've used the lithocoal and oil, and they seem to work well. I haven't tried the pastels though. I would also like to hear if anyone has tried out the pastels.

Re: d'uVA Chroma Coal Heat Fixable Pastels

The couple I tried were fairly hard and fragile.
The color are rather acid and quite transparent (no white is available in the small color line).
Moreover, the color shades and surface quality changes when you heat set it.

IOW: you can pretty much forget a traditional chalk pastel handling or look to these. Though they may be useful for drawings, stenciling, layering, etc.
