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.

Beautiful color and feel...
These are my favorite pastel pencils, although there are other nice ones, too. These have beautiful color and they feel nice while I am using them. They blend beautifully and they are strong. They don't tend to break when sharp. I don't use a sharpener, I sharpen with a knife and sandpaper block. They get a nice point and handle details very well.

I've never been a fan of pastels. It might be the feel of it on the fingers. This pastel pencil by Stabilo is amazing. All the chalk pastel texture and effect inside a wooden pencil. The pigments are high and very beautiful color selection. Highly recommend if you want to experiment,
Still getting thank-you's.

I purchased these as a gift for a friend that has been wishing for quite a long time. She is and accomplished artist, has been thrilled with the quality and has been producing some beautiful work. She continues to thank me every time she sees me. I debated on which brand to buy, trying to balance cost and quality. I am more than pleased with my choice.
Stabilo CarbOthello Vibrant Blue Pastel Pencil

I bought several of these pastel pencil. This one is by far the most desired because it has such a rich and vibrant hue. I love this shade and I especially love the handling of the entire pencil (no stress on the grip).

#sweepstakes.I use CarbOthello Pastel Pencils exclusively when I draw portraits and figures, and also for getting small details and highlights in pastel paintings. I buy them in open stock, choosing the colors that fit my needs.These pencils work without fault on all the papers that I use, are soft, without much dust fallout, they sharpen great, hold the point and the pigments are vibrant and true.Dick Blick offers the pencils as open stock at a fantastic value. I couldn't resist, I had to order more to replenish and expand my stock.

Good quality set

Needed more colors for a pastel class. Easy to use and convenient case. Good value for so many colors! Had to get the 60 color set, of course.
