This product is subject to specific safety warnings
Soft pastels have brilliant, light resistant colours, a smooth colour laydown and are very easy to mix and blend using a finger, cloth, paper, wiper or pastel brush. The brilliant, vivid results achieved make them ideal for amateur artists, school art lessons and creative handicraft enthusiasts. Soft pastels are well suited to different types of paper (e.g. flock paper), but fantastic effects can also be achieved on other surfaces. We recommend fixing the finished drawing to prevent smudging.

As far as she was concerned these are the pinnacle of chalks, the colour palette (the pack was 36) is excellent although If you can afford it I would personally get the 48 pack as it includes even more of the colour spectrum
The chalks blend in perfectly and result in an exceptional quality. These aren't cheap, but then they aren't designed to draw hop scotch on the pavement, these are for artists
As ever, Staedtler products can be relied upon to be of professional quality yet affordable. Strongly recommended.
The colours in this set include:
White 0, Light Ivory 40, Yellow 10, Bright Yellow 15, Pumpkin Yellow 16, Orange 4, Light Flesh 42, Orange Brown 43, Vermillion 24, Carmine 2, Bordeaux 29, Magenta Light 23, Heather Violet 21, Traffic Purple 22, Madder Pink 20, Pastel Violet 61, Lavender 6, Delft Blue 36, Blue 37, Light Blue 3, Sky Blue 31, Glacier Blue 30, Lime Green 50, Willow Green 5, Sap Green 58, Sea Green 59, Light Olive 57, Golden Yellow 17, Fawn 70, Burnt Sienna 74, Brick Red 73, Dark Sand 77, Cognac 76, Van Dyke Brown 79, Cool Grey 8, and Black 9.
With Karat Soft Pastels it is easy to produce a stunning painting (as long as you have some talent of course). Karat Soft Pastels can be blended with water and used to create lightly tinted areas in paintings. They're also excellent for combining with watercolours, red chalk, charcoal, and acrylic paints. My daughter (8) likes to use these pastels for colouring in printed pictures on canvas or board and then hangs them on her bedroom wall, she has quite an art gallery in her bedroom.
These pastels are also effective for graffiti style drawings on black board, one of my sons has created a stunning piece of art which he has framed and also hung on his bedroom wall.
These soft pastels would be excellent for school or hobby use as well as by professional artists. Soft and smooth in use Staedtler Karat Soft Pastel Chalks are excellent soft pastel chalks for effective colour and tint. Brilliant colours, art studio quality with a high degree of light fastness. Superb blending qualities and highly break-resistant.
I have found it quite hard to find anything negative to say about Staedtler Karat Soft Pastel Chalks but there again I'm not an artist.
In summing up
Very good quality chalks in a vast array of colours.
There is a good range of colours too, and they are all very vibrant and come out true to the colour of the wrapper. A few lighter colours, such as a lighter blue and a lighter green would be useful, but there's an excellent range of browns, yellows and purples, with five different purples alone!
There's no real information provided about how to use them, so beginners will want to obtain some extra instruction. I also think the packaging would benefit from being bulked up a little, as during postage a few chips occurred on some of the pastels. However, it remains a very nice set and fairly good value for money. Recommended.
The pastels themselves are relatively easy to hold (square shaped) and do not crumble in your hand when in use, the colours are vibrant and can be blended well.
Not sure how else I can review a pastel itself, however the box offers good protection ‘in transit’ and the Amazon packing was more than adequate for the job. So these arrived in tip top condition.
