Started with pastel pencils and decided to go with soft pastels. Handmade are definitely the way to go. These richeson and the unison are unbelievably soft and creamy.

Pastels go on soft .They are creamy . Although it comes in cardboard box, it is very sturdy and keeps pastel tightly in place.They are fatter than most pastels making them harder to work with in detail but great for covering large areas. Colors are very intense but wish there were more of the darker value range.Good price compared to unison & sennlier .

My first venture with soft pastels. Wonderful ecperience
from Gatineau QUébec
Great range of nuances, great softness, but missing dark blues, dark greyish velvet and stuff. I'll use them more for light colors.
from Philadelphia, PA
I'm new to pastels and I really enjoy working with Richeson. They blend so nicely and the colors are so vibrant. I'm about to buy more. You won't regret using them.

The best pastels I've used
from Madison, WI
The colors are wonderful, some very subtle, nuanced, and others absolutely brilliant. The consistency of the sticks is soft, but not too soft for applying them in any way. Except. What I found a little difficult to work with is the thickness of the sticks. It's hard to pull a clean, narrow line with them. Other than that, these are really terrific.
