Welcome to dickblick
Sennelier uses only the purest pigments, mixed with minimal amounts of natural binders, in an exclusive formula that yields lightfast, water-soluble pastels. There is just enough binder to hold the pigment together as the pastels are formed by hand, placed in special molds, and allowed to air dry. No fillers or clays are used.
Sennelier soft pastels are highly concentrated and so soft that a gentle stroke will deliver a solid, powerful line of brilliant color. Sticks are 2½" long × ½" in diameter (64 mm × 13 mm).
Gift Idea —Delight the artist in your life with a set of Sennelier Pastels. Sennelier Pastels are available in a variety of gift boxes, from the economical half stick sets to more complete and specialized sets. See Sennelier Soft Pastel Sets for pictures and more detailed specifications of these sets.

Comments about Sennelier Soft Pastel Sets:
A wonderful pastelist I took a workshop from recommended these and I love them. I bought the half stick 80 piece box and as a beginner it's great for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great colors but crumbly
I was advised to buy the half sticks because they are not wrapped in paper, and I was told the whole sticks crumble when you remove the paper ... so I bought the half sticks, which I like, but one crumbled almost completely just by being picked up. Frustrating.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Beautiful colors in a soft pastel stick
I love the vibrant colors in this soft pastel
Wood Box Set
from Chestnutridge, MO
The range of color in the landscape wood box set is good and the quality is fabulous, creamy, vivid, Sennelier! The box is well made and very convenient, however, I would think the latches will need replacing.
from North Carolina
Very vibrant colors, highly pigmented. Great product. Got these on sale which provided some incentive to try.

I love all of Sennelier products from Black
I have bought Sennelier Water Color Paint and Oil Color Paint from Blick so when I looked at the reviews on the other soft pastels I was drawn to Sennelier again and they indeed are the top of line products in all my Artist needs. Sennelier and Blick, the 2 best combos to insure I get the best quality for a reasonable price ~ if your wanting to do the best art work you have to have the proper tools to get to the best result.

I will add more of these to my collection
As I learn more about pastels, I realized the need for the more expensive supplies for this expressive medium. But I still needed to budget my costs, so I picked the smallest, basic set of the most affordable fine brand. They are so rich and creamy and blend beautifully. I do like to blend, but I also want to add some luscious darks to my set. Good stuff.

Dark skinned man portrait with Sennelier pastels
from Dallas, Texas
I love the depth of color with these -- I am only sad when they crumble a little too much and l lose some of the pastel!
