So smooth! Rich pigment!
Comments about Caran d'Ache Neopastels:
I'm an abstract painter and not a pastel artist - so I've only used a couple different brands and WOW! I love these Neopastels! So smooth! Rich pigment! I like to lay down color and use my fingers to blend and move the color around and these are amazing! I've used them for abstract portraits. You can have a lot of fun layering color. I use Sakura Specialist pastels to compliment/mix. I prefer these two brands over Sennelier; Daler-Rowney and Van Gogh.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great to Blend!
Comments about Caran d'Ache Neopastel Sets:
These pastels are perfect for a detailed, bold look. They are easy to blend and have a consistent high quality.
Good first layers and handy darks
I am a Sennelier and Holbein painter but I make good use of some Neopastel darks and muted hues. They happen to be handy but the quality vary from one stick to another. They sometimes bloom or dry. Knowing that, be vigilant when you receive your shipment. Otherwise, enjoy their great coverage!

Hard to find anywhere else!

Blick offers the ability to purchase individual neopastels to replace used up ones. This is a big advantage to me since I use certain colors more than others.

Great selection of greens
By Chatham kemp
from Hattiesburg MS
The selection of colors, especially grays and greens is very good. Also, pastels are not too oily or stiff (good middle consistency).

I use the neopastels as accents in my water media paintings. They POP the image. I have also used them as a base on YUPO for my Molotov acrylic work. The pastels blend softly on YUPO.

These pastels were used in a Junior High Art literacy class. They were great materials for beginners; good saturation of color, good color selection, very soft so that beginners could blend very easily. They broke very easily; which disturbed the kids until they realized that the smaller pieces were easier to work with. We will be buying more next year.
from Newport RI
The prices at Dick Blick always tempt me to go whole hog, in this case with a set of beautiful pastels with the added bonus of 2 pads of pastel paper.I've always found the prices very reasonable and so I have many high quality sets including prismacolor colored pencils, magic marker pens and many others that helps me to realize more of my potential.

These oil pastels are wonderfully opaque and mix beautifully. I do not think they are waxy, but instead very creamy. I love using them combined with Sennelier - they seem to complement each other.
Neopastels are a professional quality oil pastel with excellent smoothness and blendability. They're made from permanent, lightfast pigments that are bright and vibrant, even on dark backgrounds. These dustless, opaque pastels glide easily on paper, but also work great on a wide variety of substrates - they'll even stick to non porous surfaces like glass and plastic! See why Caran d'Ache Neopastels are a great oil pastel.
