These make the brightest colors and are SO easy to blend!
from Fort Smith, Ar.
Comments about Portfolio Series Watersoluble Oil Pastels:
These oil pastels blend so easily and have such a great color! Students are working on how to use these to create value on their fall creations. The pumpkins, apples, sunflowers, etc. are going to be a hit during parent teacher conferences. Art is not finished but you can see they are doing a great job for 5th grade.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Students get excited when they see the box!

from Hoover, AL.
Smooth, easy to apply for rich, saturated color. Fun for students to enjoy the "magic" of the painterly affect when brushing with water.

Excellent oil pastels
from Winter Park, Florida
Used for Summer art camp, the artwork the little ones created was phenomenal. Bright rich colors and none were broken after 5 days usage.
such a smooth quality
from San Bruno, CA
these pastels are so smooth. I really like the colors and how free-feeling they are in my hands.
I would buy this product over and over again.

We have used this product to let kids simulate oil painting. It works wonderful.
from Dallas, TX
I was initially very excited about finding pointed oil pastels but the quality is lower than Crayola which is what I previously used. The creaminess is nice but they crumble easily and some of the colors aren't as rich as I had hoped. I had to bring out my old boxes of crayola and some pentels to get more colors. My students are using them on black paper and the yellow looks horrible against the black. They feel oiler than most oil pastels.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry that these pastels didn't meet your expectations, and we'd like to help. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be following up to assist you.
Why use anything else?
By Lady of the Lake
from Burington, Vt
These watersoluable pastels are a watercolor and pastel in one. The colors are vibrant, the pastels go on very smooth and they don't loose color quality when blended with water. Perfect for the I-am-not-creative crowd as they are so easy to use and offer effects that look like you know what you are doing.
water soluable oil pastels
from Durham, NC
I like the creaminess of color but am disappointed in adding water as not a soluable as desired.

Creamy, Delicous and Versatile!
I love how versatile these oil pastels are. Use them as oil pastels or watercolor crayons! Two for the price of one!
