Good product for the price
from sutter creek Ca
Comments about Blick Artists’ Soft Pastels Sets:
Of course we would all like a full set of unisons but since that is impractical for most of us this set is a good value for what you get. I bought a set a few years back and I believe Blick has actually improved on the product and now it comes in a good wooden box with drawers. I would recommend the product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After a preliminary use with one pastel painting, everything looks good.
These are not soft pastels.
from Muskogee, OK
These are more like hard pastels. The box does not even say soft pastels.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. Soft pastels vary in softness — although these are by no means a hard pastel, they are on the harder end of the spectrum, and we apologize if this is not what you expected. Please know that if you'd ever like more information on the working characteristics of a new medium, our Product Information Team is here to help. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they're happy to advise!
Very good quality pastels!
These pastels where recommended to me by a fellow art teacher. These pastel are well made and the quality is exceptional.
Nice set of pastels
from Toronto, Canada
Very nice set of pastels. The Blick pastels are quite firm (similar to Rembrants) but the quality is very good and the price is excellent. I also have the larger set and they are all really good value.
First time user of pastels.
from Kingsley, PA
This was my first time working with pastels. I bought the Blick brand because of the price and was extremely happy with it. I took a class and the instructor let us use some of her more expensive pastels but found the Blick brand to be just as workable.

Blick artist soft pastels set half sticks
from Elk Grove, CA
A nice variety of colors. Maybe too many 1* values? 2* values would be better I think. The 1* values start to all look like white. At least I know I won't run out of white too quickly I guess with these other light value options. Colors look a bit ordinary compared to a student grade pastel set I've tried during college. Sometimes normal colors are what one needs to get the job done though. The magic happens not from the swatchs, but from the blending and layering.
