Art Spectrum Artists' Soft Pastels are professional-quality soft pastels that provide the artist with colors that are pure, brilliant and intense — and remain that way. The very best pigments are selected and triple-milled at maximum concentration to bring out the finest color and provide the rich, velvety bloom valued by pastelists. This method produces smoldering darks, brilliant and intense pure colors, and a range of subtle, delicate tints. All are free of heavy metals, asbestos, or other toxic substances.

Comments about Art Spectrum Artists' Soft Pastels:
I ordered three of these for the first and they came nicely packaged in styrofoam, but about a third of one was broken and crumbled and when I picked it up, more crumbled. On another, the wrapping is coming off and gets in the way when I'm using. Blick is great about replacing the broken one. I'll have to use these more to see if I prefer these over other brands.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Product was great, the shipping was not.

The pastels are very good, but when they arrived many of them were broken because of the shoddy packing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A Fine Pastel
I use these pastels often in my paintings. They are soft enough to cover the U-Art sanded paper I use, yet do not crumble. They are considered to be on the firmer side. The colors are lovely...just wish there were more.
very nice "semi soft" pastels

I ordered a few sticks of these, to fill in colors I didn't have, and to see how they work. I like them a lot. They're about as soft as Rembrandts, which means they are among the firmer brands of "soft" pastels. They're available in a few colors which aren't available in other brands. I'll buy more of them as time goes on. I just wish they were available in even more colors.
