Product description

This is a great pack of assorted Hobbycraft soft pastels ranging from black to white colours. The buttery feel of these soft pastels allows for enhanced blending and mixing. Highly versatile effects can be achieved using a variety of techniques, such as layering for rich, vivid colour and smudging for softer look.

The feel of your work will vary depending on the canvas you use. You can use canvas board, watercolour pastel, for more grit. The rougher the canvas the more pigment it grabs; whilst smooth surface will make colours stick together and become muddy.

Try to avoid blowing pastel flakes off the canvas to avoid inhaling

  • Pack size: 12 soft pastels
  • Colour range: shades of black, white and grey
  • Versatile effects with different techniques
  • Result will vary depending on paper
  • Work in ventilated area and try not to inhale the pastel particles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value A good range of greys, from black to white, excellent for setting out different tones. There seems to be quite a variation in consistency, from the good and smooth to the harder and gritty, but for the price no-one would complain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value for money Pastels are extremely expensive in most art shops. Hobbycraft pastels are of good quality and an amazingly low price. The service at the till was also very friendly and efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value I've had these pastels a year while doing a life drawing night class. They have a really good range of shades and great coverage on sugar paper. The only down side is one or two have seemed to have a kind of waxy surface to them, and I've had to rub them on a spare piece of paper first to get below this. They also crumble easier than other more expensive pastels, but for a quarter of the price I've found them excellent value. Most weeks I complete at least one A2 picture with heavy shading from the pastels and I still have most of the pack left. I recommend these pastels especially if you're just starting with pastels and want to 'have a go'.
