Rembrandt Chalk Sticks
(Soft Pastels)

In color theory, a tint is the mixture of a color with white, which increases lightness, and a shade is the mixture of a color with black, which reduces lightness. In general with the Rembrandt Chalk Sticks numeration system, the number to the left of the period indicates color while the number to the right denotes whether it is a tint or a shade of that color.
