Welcome to dickblick
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 for practice!
They feel good when laying down, they respond very well to blending and they are excellent and compare to any other hard pastel in every way except one, lightfastness. That is the only problem I have with them and if that was not an issue then these would be the best hard pastels on the market. I still use them a lot but I wouldn't feel comfortable using them for commission work because the lightfast rating is unknown and Prismacolor does not rate or test them.

Fast, cheap, good
from Greensboro, GA
Blick had the Nupastels sticks in the very few colors I wanted & only had to buy 6 sticks to make an order. Very good, cheap & fast. Beats having to go to an art store & take my chances that they have them, or wait on the phone for 30 min while they check their stock.
I've been using these since college.

These pastels are a terrific drawing tool for people starting out in pastels drawing as well as people with lots of experience. They are easier to control than the extremely soft pastels and the colors are clean and more intense than some of the cheaper pastels. I use them now when I start a pastel drawing and sometimes end up using only Nupastels, depending on how many layers I end up needing. The only limitation to these is that there is a limit to how much layering you can do, which is where the very soft pastels come in handy. These are definitely worth trying if you are thinking of plunging into doing pastel drawings. They make great gifts too.

A good companion to soft pastels, perfect for sharp detail otherwise difficult to achieve, good color selection. I found their texture easy to apply & blend.

The box is larger and the sticks appear larger also . Nupastels are a great basic pastel.

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!
