Welcome to dickblick
The history of Royal Talens goes back to 1899. In that year, Marten Talens founded the "Dutch Factory for Paints, Lacquers, and Inks" based in Apeldoorn, Netherlands. Rembrandt Soft Pastels have since become one of the most popular artist pastels in the world.
We offer you the full range of Rembrandt colors in open stock. Rembrandt pastels are made from the purest pigments and mixed with the finest quality kaolin clay binder. No pigments containing heavy metals, such as cadmium, lead, and cobalt, are used in production which ensures that the pastels have no hard bits or sharp edges.
These pastels are harder in consistency than many soft pastels, allowing for more control and definition in your painting. Full sticks measure 2-3/4" long × 7/16" diameter (70 mm × 11 mm). They are paper wrapped, and are sold individually. Half sticks are available only in sets.
Gift Idea — Rembrandt Soft Pastels are available in a variety of attractively packaged sets, from economical half stick sets to the exquisitely packaged wooden box sets. See Rembrandt Soft Pastel Sets for pictures and more detailed specifications of these sets.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Minimum Order — Please order individual pastels (open stock) in a minimum of 6, so that we can efficiently package and ship your order. Your selection may be assorted to meet this requirement.

I appreciate Rembrandt's soft pastels for, sketching, block-in and underpainting since they are on the "harder" side.They happily complement my Sennelier et Mont-Vision soft pastels.These are widely used and liked.
from Las Cruces, NM
Comments about Rembrandt Soft Pastel Sets:
Good coverage. Great color selection. Blends reasonably well. The luxury box is a great way to get a large array at a good price.
These are very good but still think the Senneliers are nicer.

Will be using Rembrandt pastels for under paintings.
My first Rembrandt pastels - I'll get more
from Des Moines, IA
This we my first time using Rembrandt pastels and I found them a joy to work with. Rembrandt pastels are much softer than NuPastels but still firm. I bought the box of 90 half sticks - a great way to add a lot of color range at a reasonable cost.
Great pastel set
I bought this kit to get started in pastels based on a recommendation in a book. They are easy to use and store with a wide range of colors.

I use Rembrandts in every painting I create. They are a consistent performer and invaluable for my techniques in creating life like fur. They have excellent greys and a full range of color and value.Try them!!

I will be a repeat consumer of this product!
from Wirtz, Va
#sweepstakes The only reason I did not mark these as best in category is in all fairness, as I have only tried one other brand. That said, the control and end result of these make it highly likely that I will continue using Rembrandts rather than going to higher priced brands.
