I rely on Derwent year after year
By Experienced Art teacher
from Rockdale High School, Texas
Comments about Derwent Pastel Pencil Sets:
As a High School Art teacher on a very tight budget but still trying to provide the best supplies for my AP Studio Art students, I rely always on Derwent. The quality is consistently superior for the price. I can get several years use from one tin by replacing yearly those used the most. Their attention to quality packaging with the inner wrapping inside the tin, means that the pastel cores arrive unbroken.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Pencil, Bad sharpning
These pastel pencils are beautiful and amazing, the only problem is the sharpening. It breaks kinda easily and the lead always gets stuck in the sharpener. I have broken over 10 sharpeners which have been clogged. The company says to use a knife to sharpen it, but I cant get a fine point, and I would have to spend more money on the pencil holder.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Awesome for those small detail areas!
When working with pastels, sometimes you need to add a tiny bit of color or detail to an area and these pencils are awesome for it!!!

First time using this brand
By Ghee of 14
from Punta Gorda, Fl.
I felt the pencils colors were very nice however when I tried to achieve a fine point on them the lead broke off. Had to sand and whittle to achieve a fine point. I would buy them again because of their colors.

I needed to replace my stabilo pastel pencils, because after several years of use and mis-use, the remaining leads kept breaking when I tried to sharpen them. I don't blame the brand--the pastel leads will break inside the pencils when they are dropped. I wanted the most colors, the best quality and the the best price. This set was it. One brand has 12 more colors, but the price for it was over $300 for the full set. I decided I would live without those 12 colors! This was a terrific value and I am very happy so far with the color range and the quality of the pastel pigments. The leads are soft enough to blend but will also put down a very fine line. I cannot speak to the complaints about reformulation. These play very nicely with traditional hard and soft pastels, as well as PanPastels. Good product, good value.
