The story behind Zaria's Ocean Sets

Ever since I was first introduced to Unison Colour Soft Pastels, I haven't stopped using them. They are the softest in texture and richest in hue. Simply no other pastels I have tried can compare! Beyond making a stellar product, the folks Unison have been a pleasure to work with. Almost years ago now, I was struggling to find the right color blue for a very specific kind of ice. Old ice. Snow stacked on snow stacked on snow for hundreds of thousands of years, builds glaciers and Polar ice caps. The older the ice, generally the more it's compressed - bubbles have been pushed out, and only ancient ice is left in it's purest form. This ice radiates sapphire blues, that I just couldn't seem to achieve even by blending several colors together. So I decided to contact Unison.

They were up for the challenge! And thus began a wonderful collaboration. Between the variety of our test colors, we came up with several new colors together, and eventually decided to put together two sets: one for ocean greys (coming soon), and another for ocean blues, which in fact includes the old ice blues - surprisingly similar colors are found both at the poles and the tropics!
