Only oil pastels I use
By SC art teacher
from Aiken ,SC
These are the only oil pastels I use with my students. They are a good value and have great colors.
If you are looking for a good oil pastel with vibrant pigments, this is your product. They are yummy to work with, rich and not that expensive. They do go fast though, so it's a good thing the price is goo!
Great Beginner Pastels
from Murrieta, CA
These oil pastels are a great pastel for young children that are just starting out in art. I use them with my second graders and they hold up well. The "chubby" pastels do not break as easily especially when needed to color large amounts of background for example. The pastels blend wonderfully together and they come in a great variety of colors. A great set to start!
Good quality, too small
from edmonds, wa
These are smaller sized, great for smaller hands, but not for middle or high school. If you keep that in mind, they are good quality and good colors.

Perfect for all ages!
from New Orleans, LA
As an elementary art teacher it is important to find products that can span all age groups. This product definitely hit the mark. Very soft and easy to use. Easy cleanup after projects as well.
Great quality oil pastels!
Love the vibrancy and consistency of these oil pastels!
Versatile and Fun!
By Kathy the Experimenter
from Lexington, KY
I first tried Cray-Pas Junior Artist oil pastels when I needed to get supplies for a children's class. I was immediately taken with them. We were using them as a resist medium with water media. They have a wonderful texture, not too "oily" and not too "chalky"--just right! So, I started using them on my own. They work so well as a resist medium, but also over watercolor and other water media. Cray-Pas Junior Artist Oil Pastels create a wonderful effect when used on wet watercolor. Just great for experimenting and the price is very liberating, too!

I got several sets of oil pastels to compare. The cray pas junior were the firmest of them all. To lay in your drawing with you would have more control as opposed to a softer one. Niji are a little less firmer , pentel are softer than these as well as pro art. I was surprised that sargent was pretty soft compared to all with pentel and pro art about or similar in softness with the sargent. would like to try mungyo gallery standard oil pastels as they are a cheaper pastel like these but can be bought open stock.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
