These are the best pastel pencils I've tried - softer & more pastel-like than Conté or Derwent, for example. Very useful complement to soft pastels when a little more detail is required. This is the complete set of 84, whatever the product description above says; as far as I know it's only available in the wooden box, which is very nicely made. Delivery was very prompt and the package well protected. Price was the best I could find... These are not cheap, but Caran never is, and invariably justifies the premium.
Superb and a great price !
I bought this box of pencils to compliment my top quality French and English soft pastels which they do perfectly. I have used them on abrasive paper and C Fontaine pastelmat, They are fantastic - an extensive colour range packed in a well made box. They are the softest pastel pencils I have used, they make a good intense mark and are blendable. With care I have been able to re-point them with a suitable pencil sharpener. Individual pastel pencils are replaceable individually. Still a lot of money but worth it, I wish I had bought these first.
