It's been many years since I've drawn with pastels (hate it when it's described as 'painting', ggrrr!). I picked these up and drew a portrait of my son. Before embarking on it, I was worried that this kit didn't contain any 'flesh' colours, but surprised myself by managing to blend what was on offer here - you can even introduce yellows, lilacs and blues to skintone, you'd be surprised - to produce very realistic and pleasing results. Everyone who's seen it has been really impressed. This is not a 'toy', nor is it for applying to HAIR (wtf?? I MUST be getting old); there's a couple of misleading and unfair reviews here to say the least. It's true that they are only half length, but considering pastels break so easily I've always broken full length ones in half anyway before using them. And, to be honest, at this price I'll just buy a whole new box when I run out of a few colours. They are square so they can't roll away, are good for shading on their side and also give you a sharp edge for finer detail.

They give their more expensive counterparts a run for their money. The couple of drawings I've done with them are good enough for me to consider doing some more and selling them.

For beginners: I've noticed that Amazon is coupling these pastels with a type of 'pastel paper' that others have bought alongside them. Can I just point out that one of these pads is actually cartridge paper (or similar) in pastel *colours*, rather than paper designed for pastel use? You need sugar paper or paper specifically for the use of pastels, rather than pastel coloured paper - you'll end up with drawings exceptionally vunerable to smudging on paper that is too smooth. Don't risk it! The correct paper pad usually has a picture of pastels on: big giveaway ;)

These pastels are a bit harder than the ones I mostly paint with but are a good bargain for just takong out for a bit of a quick sketch. Obviously one cannot describe them as durable because they are expendible as one uses them. The colours are good enoughj and the square section allows for drawing finer lines where necessary. A snip at the price!

These are a very good range of colours, although bright. They're good if you just want a basic range of colours.

I absoulutley love these pastels! Good range of colours. Used most of them already! I don't like using chalk and charcoal so these are a fab substitute!

Lovely range of colours especially in greens and blues. Cover the paper well and produce god colour. Soft but not too soft.
