NuPastels have a rich, creamy texture that blends and shades easily. Frequently used in advertising layouts, NuPastels are stronger than ordinary soft pastels, which means less breakage and easier cleanup. Use them to create broad strokes and fine lines.
Each stick measures 3-5/8" long × 1/4" square (92 mm × 6 mm).

Great Set of Color Cticks
By Mo Art
from Framingham MA
I'm fairly new to pastels and looking to add to my set. I started with a small set, but found I kept needing more. I shopped around online and found Dick Blick to offer the best price!

Hard working pastel
By Jack Of All Trades Master Of None
from Montpelier, VA
Nupastels are good for underpainting, painting, doing line work or any other detail work. They help save money on buying soft pastels because they last longer. I like them a lot.
I would buy this again, no questions asked.

Just learning to use pastels. They give a beautiful finished product.
from Brooklyn, Ny
I was looking for pastels that we're great quality and non-toxic, because I normally draw using pastels, and it was really difficult. I always knew prismacolor had non-toxic pastels but they were expensive at other stores, I found and brought them here for a great price. I brought a 48 set and when I drew with them do the first time they had a creamy texture which was great, if I finish this set I will definitely purchase a new one.

Very Smooth Colors
By P Schorn Studio
from Grayslake, IL
Mainly a color pencil artist, wanting to get into pastels. I have always preferred prismacolor.The sale that was going was too good to pass up and with 96 colors to pick from it was a done deal. Very good color selection and they blend very well. They are slightly softer than others I have tried, so overlaying colors is better.

Nice color range
from Oneonta, New York
Good set of 24 colors, except I received 2 of the same purple color - a mistake in packaging. Also thought these were in the mid. to hard range for pastels. Maybe I'm used to Conte pastels - hard - these are much softer than I thought, by comparison. Still, the set is very usable - colors are true to a good range of primaries, secondary's, some earthy browns and a limited grey thrown in, with black and white.
