Welcome to dickblick
Here are genuine artists’ quality pastels — the softest in the world — uniquely packaged in stacking and interlocking jars. The packaging protects the colors, thus reducing damage and waste. PanPastels were specially developed so that artists could lift, apply, and control pastel color, just like true painting. The pan format holds color like paint for easy application. Each pan contains 35% more material than the average pastel stick. (On average, based on a market survey of standard soft pastel sticks.) The label, with color name and number, remains with the color pan for easy identification.
Loaded with the highest quality artists’ pigments, PanPastel colors are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, resulting in a rich, ultra soft, low-dust formulation. These professional quality colors are highly pigmented and have excellent lightfastness. They are erasable and fully compatible with traditional pastel sticks, pastel surfaces, and conventional fixatives. They can be mixed, blended, layered, and applied like paint for an infinite palette of colors.
With PanPastel, it is possible to create more painterly effects. The artist can apply controlled marks, from intense to delicate — ultra thin “glazing” layers and veils of color. It is possible to block in large areas of color in seconds, for backgrounds, underpainting, and tinting paper. PanPastels clean up easily.
Each jar contains 9 ml (0.3 oz) of pastel. Instructions are also included.
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.

I love this product and will buy again. More likely locally
By Diana the Artist
from Scottsdale, AZ
Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels:
My only complaint, was that 6 of the pastels were broken up so badly, that I had to empty them out of the trays. Now, need to determine how to get them back to their original form in order to use them. Pan Pastels need to be compact, and smooth to use them as intended. I'm sure the problem was the loose packing where they flew around the package and easily broke up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would by Pan Pastels from Blick before anywhere else
from Upper Lake, Ca
Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels Sets:
The price of pan pastels tend to vary from site to site but Blick offered the best deal money wise as the price was at least 30$ cheaper than anywhere else. The product came when it was suppose to and was tightly wrapped in bubble wrap to stop it from breaking. I was rather surprised that the pan pastels where so well protected from damage as people on other sites were saying they came broken. All I can say is: Trust Blick for a good price and a good product.
I can't wait to buy more pan pastels. Beautiful product

I would recommend Blick's for all art supplies
from Peachland British Columbia Canada
I'm just learning how to use pastels in general when I came across the pan pastels. I can't explain it but the pan pastels make it so much easier to use. It's like using paint. I love them
Great to work with
from Rolfe, IA
I am just learning to use them. Bought a couple to try out and now I love them.
from Atlanta, GA
I bought three colors: Burnt Sienna Extra Dark, Burnt Sienna Tint, and Burnt Sienna Shade (along with the tools necessary). I was very pleased to find they arrived several days early and carefully packed, although my Burnt Sienna Tint arrived powdery. This, however, hasn't hindered its use and I'm absolutely in LOVE with the pigmentation and easy application. Definitely buying more.
I would buy this product again
from Prescott Az
I use other pastels. This is my first time using pan pastels. They are awesome. I am hooked now. I dabble in other mediums as well, like acrylics, colored pencils and water colors. But i like the pans so much, that it's hard to go back to the other mediums. So far i don't see any downside to these
Great colors !!
Great for large area coverage.

If I could give this product 6 stars, I would. I have never used pastel of any kind or had any lessons and I simply loved using this. Word to the wise, get the right pastel paper. It makes a world of difference. I found this out after trying several kinds that didn't work as well.
