Just What I Needed!!
from Austin, Texas
Comments about Great American Art Works Pastel Sets:
I am just getting started with pastels. I have some harder pastels for under painting, but knew I needed a set of soft pastels for top layer touches. The colors are perfect as I have decided to focus on animals. These are extremely creamy and very soft, although they do not crumble as you use them as another brand does. The colors I have used so far give a very realistic look to the animals.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love these pastels
from Washington, DC
I really enjoy the McKinley landscape set. Wonderful colors and I am very pleased with Great American pastels. Soft, but not so soft that they crumble as some of my other pastels have done. I will definitely be buying more Great Americans to fill round out my palette.
Great American artist pastels.
from Glasgow Scotland. U.K.
I use it to paint it is great in quality. Colours are vibrant. The sticks are very soft and give little dust. Couldn't ask for better. A bit pricy but worth it.

The Bride of Monty is sumptuous. The gradations of colors rock. Love them!

Love these pastels !
from Muncie, IN
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.
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!
