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 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!

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

First, I will say that I am in no way a professional artist, just a hobbyist who enjoys different mediums.

I had been looking at some of the more professional type pastels, but couldn't justify the money. These got great reviews for a cheaper brand, so I figured they would do what I needed them to do. I was previously using a cheap brand from Kroger that seemed to be more waxy like a crayon and didn't blend well, so hence the need to upgrade.

Based on the reviews, I was disappointed when I tried these. While the color selection is very good, and they are more firm than I would have expected (so they will last a little longer), they really did not blend any better than the cheap ones I was already using. Here you will see my comparison and the different methods that I used to blend them.

Overall, you get what you pay for, and since I only spent $6, its not a big deal, but they are not as great as I would have thought.

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'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.

No better product for the price. Great for beginner amateurs like myself.
