Welcome to dickblick
The "feel" of a pastel — or how a pastel releases to paper — depends on the individual pigments used and the base they’re mixed with. Karl Kelly, owner of Mount Vision Pastel Company, understands that. By combining his technical expertise and artistic background, Kelly has translated the vivid color and unique density of individual pigments into high-quality, affordable pastels for the artist who sees beyond the expected when it comes to color.
Each hand-rolled stick contains a unique combination of traditional and synthetic pigments, combined to bring out their inherent beauty, enrich their undertones and make each color sing, both individually and together. Combined in varying degrees with marble dust, chalk and clay to assure a consistently smooth and buttery feel, colors lay down with minimal resistance, allowing several layers to accrue without becoming too thick.
Each stick measures 2½" long × ½" diameter (64 mm × 13 mm).
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Comments about Mount Vision Soft Pastels:
i have only recently returned to working with pastels. I use townsends, schminckes, sennelier, etc. these mount visions are soft without being crumbly, saturated, nice to hold and well, fantastic value. if you could eat art supplies, these would be the cheesecake with the strawberry topping! and they arrived well packed so rest assured that blick will ship the pastels safely.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

One of my Favorite Pastels and What a Value!
By Pearl Girl
#sweepstakesI am just a hobby artist but I own nearly every brand of soft pastels and one of my absolute favorite is Mount Vision. They are an excellent consistency, they blend nicely and what a value, the sticks are cheaper than many, they are giant and last forever. To boot, the color choise is superb.

Best for portrait work
At the advice of a pastel teacher I purchased these for portrait work. Easy to hold, buttery soft. Numbers 310,311,312 great for faces.
from Libertyville, Illinois
Mount Vision pastels are among the best soft pastels I've used. They color range is very good, the colors are strong and they apply to the surface beautifully. AND, if that were not enough, they are a great bargain! Excellent product!
from Palatine, Il
One of a kind set-as the name implies it's great for dynamic skies. The size of Mount Vision pastels allows for larger paintings without using up your favorite sticks.
