Good for the price, but not very vibrant.
By Art Teacher
Comments about Reeves Soft Pastels:
I bought these for my elementary students. They are really dusty and not too vibrant, but it is what I could afford for the price. I would probably get something a little better next time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We have been using these pastels on our creative projects for quite some time. The range of Blue's is particularly nice.

Do not recomend
from Little Rock, AR
I use this product with my middle school students. I was excited to get a new classroom set as the ones we have been using were getting low. The product was extremely disappointing. This pastels created a bunch of dust with very little actually sticking to the surface. They do not blend either. I am very disappointed in quality. I do not recommend this product at all.

Gritty and coarse
from North Texas
As a "newbie" pastel artist, I wanted to try as many brands as possible without investing too much money. The price was too good to resist, so I ordered a set. I also ordered a set of "Blick" student grade, which is similarly priced and far superior.This brand is quite gritty and not for me. It would be fine for a young child to play with but could cause an aspiring pastelist to give up on the medium.

Good Student Grade Pastel
By Harry Wahyudi
from Bandung, Indonesia
Reeves Soft Pastel has a really low price even for student grade, but the quality is really good, and can be compared with artist grade pastel. I think there are two lacks of this product: The pastel stick is producing powder so much, so your hand and your work place will very dirty, and the colors are not vibrant like artist grade, so it's not good for reproduction illustration work. But I think it's okay, since the pastels give you a good quality but with very low price. Even now I use artist grade pastels, but I still mix this product for my work, and still love this product.

Best for classroom use!
from Sandy, UT
I love these pastels for elementary classroom use. I think they are by far the best deal and quality at an affordable price for the school classroom. They were very soft and blended very well. The students had great success mixing colors and drawing with them. I am an art teacher, and art program creator. I am going to recommend REEVES to all my schools.

Decent colors, but dusty & messy
I'm new to pastels and bought Reeves' set of 36 soft pastels to experiment. The sticks are very dry & the colors transfered to my skin & under my fingernails easily. Some of the sticks were such a tight fit in the tray that I had to use a pen to dig them out! The colors were decent but the sticks produced a lot of powder when applied to paper. I was extra careful yet had to constantly wipe my hands & erase smudges while 'painting'. This kept me from enjoying myself and I doubt I will be using these much if at all; I prefer the oil pastels. Reeves soft pastels would probably be fine for a kid or anyone who doesn't care about the dust & dirty hands they cause. Also good for coloring on the sidewalk or in the street.
