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.

Comments about Stabilo CarbOthello Pastel Pencils:
#sweepstakes.I use CarbOthello Pastel Pencils exclusively when I draw portraits and figures, and also for getting small details and highlights in pastel paintings. I buy them in open stock, choosing the colors that fit my needs.These pencils work without fault on all the papers that I use, are soft, without much dust fallout, they sharpen great, hold the point and the pigments are vibrant and true.Dick Blick offers the pencils as open stock at a fantastic value. I couldn't resist, I had to order more to replenish and expand my stock.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good pastel pencil
purchased to compare at recommendation of SuziBluArt to caran and these are good with a little dust fallout. the carans have none which I prefer. these are still great and color is nice.
Wish I had bought a bigger set!

Stabilo Pastel Pencils
from Glenview, IL
My drawing medium is colored pencil and I couldn't be happier with this product.
Best all-around pastel pencil
from Southern California
Bill Creevy recommends these pencils for finishing touch fine line details and for the early stages of a piece where you don't want buildup. Better than average color assortment, particularly in the bigger sets. Stabilo makes a dedicated sharpener for these pencils which comes with the big set and is also available separately.

Great pastel pencils
from Santa Barbara, CA
The pencils provide the quality I like for achieving good skin tones. Easy to shape to the fine point that is necessary for details.
