Love these pastels !

Comments about Great American Art Works Pastel Sets:
I use these pastels on U art sanded paper or pastelboard. I love how smooth they glide and the colors are vibrant. I have tried other brands that are more expensive and find these are a great value and do a beautiful job.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Quality Product
I use product for my pastel paintings. Colors are great. Price is very expansive compare to amount of colors you get for this price.
A painter's dream come true
I am very pleased with the wide array of beautiful colors in this McKinley Set. Am just getting started using them and really like the way they perform. Was disappointed that they came in a cardboard box instead of the wooden one described when I placed the order.....

I am a new paste artist so take this into consideration when reading this. I found these pastels to be very soft and buttery. I also found a couple of them to break as I picked them up. I love the colors, very vivid.
Great set of pastels
By Kathy JF
from The Woodlands, TX
I love my set of Great American half-stick pastels! I nice assortment of colors and lusciously soft. I'm enjoying working with these and the half-stick set is very economical. In fact, I plan to get the other half-stick set next! Dick Blick, please start carrying the other 60 half-stick set of these so I don't have to buy them somewhere else, I'd rather buy from you!
I am drawing with these pastels. I found the colors to be very useful with many wonderful choices. They are very soft. A few crumbled in my hand. I still had pieces large enough to use.I was able to create many different types of scenes. I would buy these again when I needed a really soft pastel.

Followed my instructions-very pleased!
I requested very careful packaging for this box of fragile pastels, because the last time I had ordered a set they had not been adequately protected and some were broken. I put my request in the "Special Instructions" box. I was so pleased with the way the pastel box was wrapped and cushioned inside the shipping box. The pastels were in perfect condition and arrived very quickly. Good job! Thank you so much!
Wonderful soft pastels

Love these pastels. And Blick's is great - one was broken on arrival and they sent me a replacement stick immediately - Thanks!
Great Soft Pastel!
from Wheaton, IL
I just bought a couple of these sticks to test out...unbelievable color and consistency! Super soft and buttery, but not too mushy or crumbly.
