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.

Another quality product from Derwent works well for definition and blends beautifully. Worth buying a small set to see if it suits your style.

Arrived promptly. Excellent range of colours and the box is well made, magnetised fastening and magnetised strips of wood hold pencils in the box which hinges like a book. Excellent value at this offer price and a great gift for any artist.

Bought it as a gift. Difficult to sharpen because the colours are very soft and breaks quite fast. But besides that the colours are very vibrant and good looking. Another issue was the colours smudges if art work is touched...I guess it is normal, just need to be extra careful if your palm is going to rest on coloured areas, make sure you use an extra paper under your palm to avoid smudging.

Very good for fine detail, you can put the bulk of colour on the paper with the soft pastels and do the finishing touches with these pencils. also excellent for marking out your work before putting too much colour on the picture.

A comprehensive set of pastel pencils enable me to do much better drawings.

These pencils are just as beautiful as the they look. Good for any art project and smudge just as easy as normal pastels. In the pictures the strips across the pencils are magnetic which makes for easy usage. Pencils are kept in place.

Very disappointed as the pencils snap when you try and sharpen them, I've wasted at least a third of a few of these now. Derwent not interested and just push their own pencil sharpeners, which in my opinion is not the solution. Buy Faber Casells instead.

Have used these for some times and really like these penscils as a compliment to soft pastels.
Good range of colors and easy to use.
