Welcome to dickblick
Faber-Castell's Pitt Pastel Pencils are very suitable for lines, shading, and delicate color transitions, and also for extended areas. Use them for sketches, studies, portraits, still-lifes, and landscape drawings.
They give a smooth flow of color without being used up too rapidly. Colors are rich in pigment, allowing dense shading. They do not change on fixing or exposure to light.
Wood-cased Pitt Pastel Pencils do not dirty the fingers, and the leads are free of oils. They can easily be wiped to merge areas of colors, which means that they must then be fixed to protect the drawing.
Pencils are pre-sharpened. Individual lightfastness ratings are printed on each pencil's casing.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Faber-Castell pencils are made using environmentally safe, high-quality materials and low-pollution processes. The company uses only wood from its own reforestation and soil conservation project in Brazil to manufacture pencils.
Faber-Castell grows its own trees on land that was once denuded and deforested, subject to soil erosion. The company even recycles the waste products from manufacturing pencils to increase the fertility of the soil.

The pastel pencil set is a great addition to my other soft pastels because the pencils allow me to add small details as needed. The Faber - Casteel pencils have lots of pigment - great colors.
Just what I needed!
i create portraits in chalk pastel so having a pastel in a pencil form has been a God send. Should have bought this item years ago. I bought a few pencils from the Faber Castell and a few others from Stabilo- the Carbothellos. They both perform well and I can't really discern a difference between them even though the Carbothellos are cheaper. The Faber Castell do not have the toxic warning that the Carbothellos do , so I feel better using them. The only thing I wish that the Faber Castells had is a fully colored pencil barrel like the Carbothellos. i can't tell indigo from black by looking at the small band of indicator color at the bottom of the pencil.

So far I have used these on just a generic Pastel paper, but I have to say I'm already in love with this brand. I bought these to extend the colors I already had from my CarbOthello 60 pack. I was no disappointed!!!!

As a teacher of art, I use Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils for my students who have had problems with other pastels. These pastels work easily and in very small areas for blending and preciseness. The colors are vivivid but primary colors are not specific. "Where is the red?, was one students question.
Very nice product
from Casselberry, Fl
Great for some fine details in pastels, great color selection and price will always use this product.
I absolutely love these pencils! I do a lot of card making and they are the best for outlining,shading and adding bold effects. They are so smooth.it's almost like a crayon consistency. A wonderful product!
