I've not used pastels much, but these work so well I'll do a lot more in this medium. I like the size and the range of colors.

beautiful colours excellent value
from Calgary ab
Beautiful colors, extremely vivd and bright, lots of blues which are my favourite. Excellent value too. One thing I would recommend however is for international shippers not to choose FedEx shipping to Canada they always have ludicrous charges that I never seem to have with USPS (never as high)
Great learning set!
By Mr. Konsistent

Love the bright colors, good selection with the 72 pc count.Bad thing is there half sticks, so if you plan to work on a large piece this set is not what you want.

Great student or illustration set
from redmond, wa
I like this set for field and travel. I recommend it to students, so they can see if they like the media before spending a lot. The colours are attractive and vibrant, and they lay down well. The only downside is that they are not lightfast, and will fade after a few months to a year. But I don't mind that, I just take a photo of anything that turns out a keeper. The box is nice too, and I refill it with chunks of other pastels as needed, which is also a nice way for students to ease into better quality, as they always use up their favorite colors first.

I bought these to complete a portrait commission, and was debating whether to get this set or the artist quality set. I went with the studio quality, since it is significantly cheaper, and was not disappointed. I do not often use chalk pastel, so I cannot speak to the quality of these in comparison with the professional quality pastels or pastels of other brands, but I have found Faber-Castell to produce consistently quality supplies. These pastels performed very well for what I needed.

Purchased for my granddaughter for Christmas. She was thrilled with this item and the number of pastels that was in the set.
