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:
I am a hobby artist working almost entirely with pastels. Carbothello are the best, smoothest of all the pastel pencils I've tried, seldom fail to give me the assist I need to create minute detail when working expression in pet portraits. The only criticism is with "white" color, it doesn't work as smoothly as other CarbO colors on velour paper surface, but, on the other hand, no other brand "white" pastel pencil I've tried does any better. On any other type of pastel papers, it is as smooth blending as all the CarbO colors used.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These are my favorite pastel pencils! The color is great and I really like the option of buying single pencils!

I have used Stabilo Carbothello pastel pencils for two years now and I rank them among the best, if not the best. Color is rich enough (still cannot compare with soft pastel sticks though) to draw.
These are my favorite pastel color pencils. The colors"Pop"!Easy to sharpen and vibrant.

Really nice textures!
Just trying these pencils for the first time, and I'm really liking them. Have used many other brands ,and I find them to be OK until you have to re-sharpen them. So far so good with this brand.
I highly recommend this product

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.

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.
