These are hand-made and have a smooth, buttery feel. The pigments are very high quality and there are many pure pigments which gives vivid colors and better color mixing.
If you arent familiar with pastel brands, know that these are considered by many to be the best pastels available - check out some retailers for more descriptions and price comparisons! Only a few of the sticks have been used, and then only once or twice.
You can see dust on the wrapper, or a slightly lopsided head on a few. There are 3 oranges, 1 green and 1 dark red that are broken (see enlargements for photos; I tried to make it obvious). I looked them over carefully, but please forgive any other small flaw that I havent noticed. I have had these for a few years, but have moved and my studio is just too small to support a pastel area. I should have let go of them sooner, but it kind of makes me sad, so Ive procrastinated.I would love to see them go to a good home.
