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 love this set
from New Braunfels, Texas
I purchased this product for personal use but of course I had a student struggle with getting details on a pastel portrait. I let them use my set and soon all my students wanted me to buy several sets for classroom use. They are very helpful in getting tight details and the colors are bright and intense.

Drawing II student's first time using pastel set
These are quickly becoming my favorite pastel product. They mark well over other pastels and products. They provide a smooth coverage and can be sharpened for fine detail. I really love these pastel pencils.

from Bendigo, Australia
These pastels are soft, smooth and dense in pigment.I have used other brands but these pastel pencils are outstanding. Brilliant for detailed work and they are easy to sharpen without breaking.
from Redmond, OR
These pencils are probably one of the best pastel pencils for the price. Very smooth, very blendable. I wish there were more colors.
These are soft and blend well. Stabilo is the easiest for me to use.

Performs like the Faber Castell
I ordered a few Carbothello pencils and a few Pitt pencils from Faber Castell . Even though the Carbothellos are cheaper I could not tell the difference between the two brands ; they performed equally well. I love that the Carbothellos have a colored barrel which makes identifying colors a lot easier. The Pitt pencils are all natural colored with only a small band of color on the bottom, it's OK if there are only a few pencils to keep track of, but with a larger set, that could become annoying.The only issue I have with these pencils is that they have the CA warning for safety. The Pitt pencils do not. I try not to use my bare fingers to blend them. . Overall , a great product. I may want to order a set because they are a lot of fun to use and make work with pastel a much less messy process.
