Beautiful, hand-crafted pastels!


The Mount Vision Pastel Company was founded in 2000, by artist Karl Kelly (a former paint maker for a small oil paint company).  Handmade in small batches in Mount Vision, New York, the pastels possess a wonderfully soft and “buttery” feel.  The pigment easily releases to the pastel surface with little resistance, allowing layers to build without becoming “slick”.  Pastels consist of the highest quality pigments with the addition of chalk, talc, or clay and binders.  Various combinations, depending on pigment, create different handling properties.  They are consistently tested to achieve the best feel and color intensity for each pastel color.  
Mount Vision utilizes both traditional and synthetic pigments, which make great substitutes for traditional painting pigments that are health hazards to use in pastels (such as cadmiums, cobalts, etc.). Sold in both open stock individually and as sets.


Mount Vision Soft Pastel sticks measure an average of 2 1/2” long x 1/2” diameter (slight variations may occur due to handmade nature of product)

Beautiful, hand-crafted pastels!

The Mount Vision Pastel Company was founded in 2000, by artist Karl Kelly (a former paint maker for a small oil paint company).  Handmade in small batches in Mount Vision, New York, the pastels possess a wonderfully soft and “buttery” feel.  The pigment easily releases to the pastel surface with little resistance, allowing layers to build without becoming “slick”.  Pastels consist of the highest quality pigments with the addition of chalk, talc, or clay and binders.  Various combinations, depending on pigment, create different handling properties.  They are consistently tested to achieve the best feel and color intensity for each pastel color.  Mount Vision utilizes both traditional and synthetic pigments, which make great substitutes for traditional painting pigments that are health hazards to use in pastels (such as cadmiums, cobalts, etc.).

Mount Vision’s manufacturing process is simple and straightforward, creating a truly handmade product with great love and care by dedicated craftsmen.  First, the pigments and chalks(or other binder) are weighed out on a scale, and then placed in an industrial sized mixing bowl.  The mixture is fully mixed to the consistency of cookie dough, and then put through a sausage stuffer, where it is extruded onto wood boards.  The boards are placed outside to dry the long pastel lines a little, to firm them slightly before handling.  Once ready, the pastel lines are cut to size and then carefully rolled by hand to create a more uniform shape.  The finished pastels are then placed on a drying rack to cure before hand labeling.  

The beauty of Mount Vision’s color selection and color values is  by other manufacturers that make a handmade product.  Drawing on his extensive painting and printmaking background, Karl Kelly carefully designed the color palettes and selections to create every color imaginable a pastelist could imagine, from the palest color values to the most vibrant brights and darkest darks. Sold in both open stock individually and as sets.
