A real improvement!
from Colorado Springs, CO
Comments about Koh-I-Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils:
In comparison to the other brand I have used, this pastel is much better. I can do much better at drawing the detail I need for the face of the angel I am painting with pastel. I feel more confident.. I can keep a better point. I will buy more colors in this brand.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Why go anywhere else
from Tamworth NH
Love the wide range of things available. The only down thing is they take a long time to get here compared to other places I've ordered from. Also whom ever is doing the packing should be a little more careful to be sure they pack them right. Many of my pastels did not come with a foam cover and some covers were left on the bottom of the box and not on the top. The ones that came with no cover got bounced around and were a mess by the time they got to me. Not a big deal because I break them apart anyway. Would be nice to have the foam covers though so I can cover and protect them when not using them. Very happy with my product and prices compared to others. Why go anywhere else.
I would buy this product again
from Honolulu, Hi
I use this for soft pastel drawing, especially for drawing in detail.
Love everything about it
from Santa Monica
I bought these for my young daughters. I love these so much, I sit down together with them to draw, just to enjoy the feel and the colors. So theraputic! Would buy again.

Excellent pastel Pencils
By Thelma L
from San Antonio, Texas
These pencils are nice and soft. They blend well. They sharpen very good and don't break easily. I recommend getting a manuel sharpener like the Faber Grip Sharpener 3 hole 0r the carb othello sharpener. I like these pencils better than Faber Castell Pitt. These are softer. I have never tried the Derwent Pastel pencils. I heard they are not as soft.But I am sure they are still good. The Faber Castell Pitt are good since I have them and tried them. I really Prefer Koh-I- Noor.

Great quality - fun to work with!
These pencils are smooth and blend really well - great selection of colors. They hold a point well for details and lots of fun to use. Would like to see a little more in the way of flesh tones to work with. I did a portrait and it turned out great, though. Thanks for a top quality product.

I have been using this product for a year now and love the feel of the pencils on pastelbord. Its a great pencil to use for details and goes on smoothly.

Average, at best
from Edmond, OK
I tried using these pencils to detail my pastel portraits. These pencils have many colors to choose from, however, they are difficult to blend and the colors are pale. They seem like a low-end pencil at a middle-range price. I've tried other brands of pastel pencils, and I definitely prefer the alternate brands over this one.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
