vibrant colors, low dust!
from central iowa
Comments about Prismacolor NuPastel Color Sticks:
I really like these! They are a step up from my original pastel in that they have considerably less dust residue, yet they still have great color, and are easy to work with. I later purchased a few higher end pastels (Senniliers) which I also liked, but for the price difference I felt the NuPastels were almost as good.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like this product
from Los Angeles
It is a very good quality product, and worth to its price. It may be more expensive than other products in the market, but it has much longer life time. I have been using it for years.
Perfect for detail
from New york
I love these pastel sticks to complement my other pastels. Unfortunately I bought some individually, and they arrived broken although they were packaged in foam.
Pastels colors sticks
from Milliken, CO
I enjoy using my new Prismacolor NuPastel Color Sticks. I wish I had bought the 96 box instead of the 48.
By Patricia Lintner
from Staples MN
I use these pastels when I want more finer work when working with my soft pastels. The color intensity is perfect too!
I would buy this porduct again
they are smooth and sort and fine for portrait painting.
Perfect for the detail work
Lots of color variety in the 96 selection. THese are great for doing the shadow accents on type designs. Color selection allow you to match most all blending combinations. Do have to watch your pressure as they will tend to break as they are very thin. I personally prefer these ove most others.
from New Jersey
These are great pastels especially for primary layers of a painting.
Nice creamy pastel
from Portland, OR
The Nu Pastel sticks are rich creamy pastels that work good for going in early in your painting to establish darks and fill "tooth". Then I go back with my my spend your soft pastels. Nice product.
Give these pastel sticks a second look
By Solo Canoer
from Adirondack Mountains, NY
I have been buying NuPastels a lot lately. I had a very old set of 24 that I rarely use. The new colors not only seem better, but stronger on pastel work. I use regular pastels like Sennelier for large areas, but need something hard with good pigment for the details, edges, and tight lines. They are replacing the pastel pencils in many cases, as the pencils aren't pigmented enough to stand up to the soft pastels. The NuPastels can.
