Product Description

Pastels with More Control and Less Mess

Originating from the heart of the Lake District, Derwent, with over 180-years pencil making experience, has constantly been at the forefront of developing quality, distinct fine art materials. The Derwent Pastel Pencils range has been developed to eliminate the mess often associated with regular pastels whilst offering a more controlled drawing experience.

A Convenient, Non-Messy Alternative

Pastels offer an unmatched colourful experience however regular pastels can be dusty and messy to use. The Derwent pastels pencils offer a convenient, non-messy alternative being cleaner on fingers and easier to control however maintaining the intense colour quality.

Powdery Texture Ideal for Mixing and Blending

The soft pastels have a powdery texture and produce a velvety smooth finish, ideal for mixing and blending. The vast range of colours available allow for multiple colours to be layered on top of each other in order to create an array of alternative hues and tints. Like regular pastels the colours can be stretched out and mixed by smudging with fingers.

Use Separately for Detail or with Pastel Blocks for Further Creative Options

The pastel pencils are ideal for creating crisp fine lines and detailed pastel drawings; the wide colour strip and round barreled design also allow for free, expressive strokes and quick colour laydown. Suitable for all types of pastel work, these high-quality professional pencils can be used as an individual medium or used for detailing in combination with the Derwent pastel blocks. The Derwent pastel paper pads, with options of A3, A4 and A5 are designed specifically for use with the pastel medium and present an ideal extra for creating and storing work.

Elegantly Presented Pencils

This is the full range of 72 pastel pencils set in a metal tin with a removable lid and individual pencil 'slots', meaning pencils can easily be stored and protected. The pencils are finished in a dark red livery and the colour dipped ends offer easy colour identification.

These are a great addition to your art supplies. Soft pastels are wonderful for soft, smudgy drawings and large areas of colour but sometimes you want or need to give a bit more definition - a tiny line or dot of colour which is where these come in. OK, not a vast colour selection but enough. I can echo and agree with the previous reviewers comments regarding colour and breaking. If you don't like the dusty mess soft pastels make and/or you want more control over where you place your colour these are for you.

This is my second tin of these pastel pencils. They are excellent quality and spread very well on a variety of surfaces. They do not crumble or break easily which is great when doing fine work. High quality pigment and colour transfer.

These pencils are extremely good for fine work and awkward corners. They don't leave too much dust behind either. I would have liked just a couple more colours in the tin.

Yes my Grandaughter has said how great they are. I saw her drawings, using lead pencils and she was not too happy using paints, though she wanted to add some colour to her sketches. I ordered her these and had Amazon send them to her. Her very talented drawing of singer Riahanna (not sure of spelling) now has the colour that was wanted. So I am very happy with these and so is my 14year old Grandaughter.

Beautiful set but unfortunately when used pastel was broken inside several of the pencils - constantly had to resharpen and lost a lot of pastel! Damage may have been caused during transit or just maybe a 'bad' batch. Very, very disappointing.

I like these Derwent Pastel pencils a lot. I have Stabilo Carbothello pastel pencils also but the lead in those seems to breaks too easily.

I bought these awhile ago from my local Art shop. I wish I had looked at Amazon first as there is a HUGH difference in price.
Good selection of colours and blend really easily. I sharpen my pastels with sandpaper and it produces a lovely sharp point for detail work, also use a blender (Tortillion) for areas that you cannot do using your hands. Blenders are great too.
I love using pastel pencils over pastel blocks. Much more easier to manage. Recommended.

These pencils were bought by me as a gift. The price (less than £28)was the lowest I could find for the same product elsewhere. Despite it being close to Christmas and with bad weather, they arrived promptly. My daughter (art student) was delighted with them and loves the effects she can create.
