I am a beginner at pastels and didn't want to invest a fortune until I was sure it would be something I would enjoy.

I do. And I enjoy these pastels. My teacher was happy with the quality of both the paper and the pastels I chose from Amazon and is considering buying both for the classes she teaches in public schools.

If I ever 'advance' to higher quality products, I will be sure to compare them.

I did upload my first picture in case of curiosity!

If you are first starting out with this type of medium to color your creations drawing, or any other type, then this is the set for you. i just love my set that i've got i started out, with a 12, then 25 color set of this brand . but advanced to 36 in no time, there really is'nt a difference but that more colors are added to the set. Pentel is the only brand i trust for full rich color.

Highly Recommended.

I've actually only used these a couple times, but when I have used them they're fun. A nice range of vivid, blendable colors. Obviously the blunt ends aren't going to be great for fine details, but you can get some fun textured effects by pushing hard with some sweeping strokes. You blow through them really fast that way, but at six bucks a set why not? (Try not to overdo it, though; they're soft, break easy. And maybe check at local stores to avoid shipping. = ) ) These are also an affordable alternative for artists who like colored pencils but can't afford the steep prices. All around if you want to relax with some fun color, this is a great way to go.

I just got it and the colors are very nice! For 50 of them for only $6 is probably the best deal (for this quality) I have found. The day before I saw these, I went to a local art store (Jerry's Artarama) and oil pastels were too expensive. I am also a beginner so I wasn't going to spend $50 on only a 25 set. So I am super happy I found these :]]] Just look at some of the colors!

I and the child like these pieces of chalk, they moderately bright, colors natural, drawings turn out perfectly.

I am a beginner and was told by friends who are better artists than me that Pentel Oil Pastels are a good quality set of pastels. I am glad I listened. I love the rich vibrant colors and makes me feel free to experiment freely as the cost is affordable. I also found out Pentel is a reputable company in Japan with global operations including the USA and Thailand.

I have the set with fifty pastels and for me this is plenty of colors to choose from. They are soft, so use with gentle strokes and it might break if you treat them hard. I attached a small pastel drawing I did with this set - yes I am just a beginner so it is not much but it shows you the colors of this pastel. Thanks for reading my review!

These Oil Pastel Sticks are about 3 inches in length and come in about every immaginable color. They sketch beatifully onto regular hard back sketch paper and allow for very nice control. If you are a modern or impressionist style sketcher then you will appreciate what you can do with these. They are fun and of a high quality for their inexpensive price.
