NuPastels have a rich, creamy texture that blends and shades easily. Frequently used in advertising layouts, NuPastels are stronger than ordinary soft pastels, which means less breakage and easier cleanup. Use them to create broad strokes and fine lines.
Each stick measures 3-5/8" long × 1/4" square (92 mm × 6 mm).

I'm not an expert on pastels. The pigments are great from my experience
I love drawing with these pastels
By Welsh Mary
from St. Augustine, FL
I love drawing and under painting with these pastels - or finishing fine strokes. They are very good in a combination with other softer pastels.
I would buy this product again.
great deal for 36 pastels!
Yummy colors and nice texture.
from Columbus. OH
I am a professional artist. My medium is pastels or colored pencils. I was wary of buying the Nu pastels because I think Prisma pencils are junk. However, I picked up a few while in my local Blicks store and fell in love. The colors are brilliant and the texture is creamy. They went down nicely on the several different papers I tried them on. I can't report on blendability since I don't blend. They do lay down nicely over pan pastels and other brands of soft pastels I use. They are hard enough to sharpen to a good point for detail or shape into a wedge with a sandpaper paddle. I snapped up the full box when Blicks ran a sale so my price was glorious.
Must Have For Painting Grasses in Pastel Works!
from Lancaster, PA
As an emerging (pastel) artist I've read many experienced artists blogging about Nupastels. They've since become a mainstay in my studio as well. I use them to sketch in my composition and as an underpainting for my more expensive softer pastels. They're also FANTASTIC for painting wispy grasses on top of the soft pastels!
just perfect for me
from Tigard, OR
ever since I discovered Prismacolor in 1984 I have found them to be just perfect
I have always loved NuPastel. However, Dick Blick's price was fantastic.
Nice to work with.
from Collegeville, PA
I'm new to pastel painting. These NuPastels work well with softer pastels, such as Terry Ludwig's or others.

These Prismacolor Nupastels have been my go-to soft/medium pastels for years now. I have several other brand names of soft pastels, but these Nupastels are like my right hand, I can't do much without them!
