Welcome to dickblick
These German-made pencils are world famous for their quality, lightfast pigments. Their opaque, water-soluble colors blend beautifully and erase easily. The large-diameter lead can make broad strokes or be sharpened to a fine point for details and lettering.
Draw with CarbOthello pencils as you would draw with a pastel stick. CarbOthello pencils can also be used like watercolor pencils — they respond instantly to a wet brush or pre-dampened paper. Pencils have semi-soft leads in a woodcased pencil form and are pre-sharpened.

I highly recommend this product

Comments about Stabilo CarbOthello Pastel Pencils:
Stabilo Carbothello pastel pencils are perfect for my detailed pastel work. The Stabilo Carbothello pastel pencils are creamy and can be easily sharpened without breakage with the Stabilo sharpener for all the fine details. Coverage is dense, the colours intense, and overlaying colour is clear and distinct. They also blend well. Definitely my favourite paste pencil. I highly recommend Stabilo Carbothello Pastel Pencils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Stabilo CarbOthello Pastel Pencil Sets:
I decided to order these pastels after following Cuong Nguyen, a great artist who uses these to create realistic portraits. If you're buying these, I highly recommend checking out his content for a look at his verdaccio technique!
bought 2, 1 bad
from Oneonta, New York
Nice pencils, color is professional artist color. Works smoothly, beautifully on pastel paper. My only gripe is I bought two of the same, and one breaks continually - I'm down to half the pencil size now after sharpening with a blade. I know how to sharpen with a knife blade - just don't like wasting - it makes no sense. Would buy this product again - the pastels are really nice, but I don't trust the product from breaking to unusable condition.
I really like
These pencils are what my art teacher use, so I wanted to try them and really like.
Consisten quality over the years of use.
from alpharetta, ga
The only negative would be sharpening. It's a bit of a bother to use a blade but the pencil sharpeners aren't very good for getting a long point. These pastel pencils have good colors and easily mix with other pastels.

I always need pastel pencils! Not only do I paint constantly, but I teach children and adults pastel. It is so convenient and quick to order through Blick's. Thank you so much for being there for us artists.

I really like these

These pencils hold their leads (lead doesn't fall out after sharpening them) and that is a real plus to me. The colors are clear and smooth.
from Brihgton, Co
As all Pastel Pencil makers, some colors are better with each maker than others, so it takes several brands, for colors to reach perfection.
