Welcome to dickblick
Unmatched in their softness and consistency, Schmincke soft pastels were created using the finest artist's pigments and a minimum of binders. The softness of the pastels permits a beautiful dense application, and the extremely high pigment concentration results in great color intensity.
Schmincke Pastels are prepared by hand and by traditional machines, and also labeled by hand to help prevent breakage. Schmincke Artist's Pastels are approximately 2-5/8" long × 7/16" in diameter (67 mm × 11 mm).

Comments about Schmincke Soft Pastel Sets:
I use these gorgeous, buttery, extremely soft pastels during the last step in my paintings. The harder pastels are great for getting the concept down on paper or board, but Schmincke pastels add a layer of unbeatable vibrancy and amazing color. They are expensive, but I believe they are worth it. They arrive in perfect condition and in a timely manner.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Product and Service
By Sherry from Canada
from Ottawa, Canada
I ordered a set of 20 Schmincke Soft Pastels for a gift and I was very impressed with the product and service I received. The product arrived very quickly and well within the timing noted on the website for delivery. The product was excellent and a terrific value for money. This was my first experience with Dick Blick but it will not be my last.
Very happy with my purchase.

Just learning to paint with pastels. These colors are so vibrant and beautiful, that it makes me happy just to see the colors.

Rich, jewel - like, velvety colors
from Garland, TX
I bought these pastels on advice from my husband who had tested them along with others in a store. They are light years away from anything I had used before and now I'm hooked. I not only discovered that pastels are the right medium for me after all, but these are the brand to buy for color that is at least as rich as oil paint. A little goes a long way. I've created two small drawings, but they still look barely used except for the fingerprints from handling. Since receiving this order, I've already purchased some additional colors that don't come with the set. The half stick set is a great way to start out with a maximum sampling of colors without the huge up-front cost of buying a full sized set.The set does not come with a corresponding color chart, but I emailed the company using the address on the box and they emailed one to me the same day.

They are like butter...so smooth! Love all the colors in the 100 set.
Soft, Deep Color Pastels
By Baby Doll
from Plymouth, MI
I love these pastels. The colors are amazing and vibrant. They go on smoothly and work particularly well over harder pastels, to finish the work.
The half sticks gave me the opportunity to sample a lot of different colors for a more reasonable price. They are expensive, but smooth as velvet and vibrant colors!! Love them!

from Limpopo South Africa
I am so delighted to have these pastels, The colours are very nice and the pastels are very soft and smooth. I wish that I could afford an even bigger set. It is very expensive for us in South Africa with the exchange rate and import tax , but it is amazing to be able to order it all the way from the U S and have it deliverd within two weeks.
