Perfect Balance of Quality and Price
By The Dominic White Studio, LLC
from Portland, ME
Comments about Caran d'Ache Neopastels:
I've been using oil pastels for my portraiture exclusively since 2014 and these are the only brand I use now. They have nice creaminess, great color vibrancy, and great lightfastness. Plus they have a great price compared to the other quality premium brand they compete with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Plays Nice with Others
I continue to be impressed with these oil pastels. They cooperate well on every surface and stage I've tried. Did a cloud study with Neo ash grey and cream and some Van Goghs and Senneliers. Very pleasurable blending and layering. I hear they are not temperature dependent, so I plan to get a set to take to the beach house this summer, for plein air. Rich pigment.

Wonderful Oil Pastels
from Duluth MN
These have been my go-to pastels for many, many years. They are consistently great. The color range is very good, and they are a little less oily, and less expensive than the Senneliers. I use both, and definitely think they are the best available.
wonderful creamy oil pastels
I have found that they cover beautifully and are very creamy.

So smooth! Rich pigment!
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.
Great to Blend!

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!
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.
