My favorite 'harder' soft pastel
By Artsy Animals

Comments about Prismacolor NuPastel Color Sticks:
I do a lot of animals in pastel paintings and nupastels are a must for whiskers, fine hairs and the overall appearance of fur.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Blick to the rescue...
from Hemet, ca
I realized at the last minute that I needed these color stick for a classroom project. Block had exactly what I needed and provided the option for very fast shipping, they actually arrived earlier than the promised time.

excellent "hard" pastels, essential
By Bill Hansen
from Ithaca New York
These were my first pastels. As "hard" pastels, they are easier to use than soft pastels (on sanded paper). Colors are true and intense, it's possible to put in details, use them for underpaintings or glazes. It's easier to lay down a very light layer with these than it is with most soft pastels. Highly recommended
Only 92 colors
Only 92 colors as 4 of the colors were duplicated and they were all browns. Could use more light colors.
Merchant response: We apologize for the duplicates in the set you received, and we're happy to help you with this. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to assist you.
have done so many times
from Hays ,ks
I used the nu-pastels as a substitute for air brush renderings. I can get a better effect with pastel media and less time.
from Saint George, Utah
My last full set of Prismacolor NuPastels has lasted for over 30 years (with obvious single replacements over that time). The only disappointment with my recent purchase deals more with the packaging than the product. I was hoping that the box containing the pastel sticks would open like a book, thus giving visual access to all of the colors. At any rate, I am very pleased; as will all my purchases from Blick!
