(4 reviews)



  • Excellent quality
  • Set contents may vary


Art Spectrum Soft Pastels provide the artist with colors that are pure, brilliant and intense, and remain that way. The very best pigments are selected and triple milled at maximum concentration to bring out the finest color and provide the rich, velvety bloom valued by pastellists. This method of production produces smouldering darks, brilliant and intense pure colors and a range of subtle and delicate tints. All Art Spectrum pure pigment pastels are free from heavy metals, asbestos or other toxic substances. Each pastel measures 70x12mm.

Blacks and whites are staple tones for any pastel work as they sit at either end of the color spectrum. Thanks to their incredible softness, Art Spectrum pastels can be used over layers and layers of pastel, meaning the whites and blacks can be dropped in as subtle hints to add shade or lightness to an area as well as concentrated highlights. The metallic colors are fantastic for highlighting areas or bringing a shimmery texture to works.

These reds pack a punch!

I am a fan of the versatility of these rectangular shaped soft pastels. As another artist reviewed, these reds are warm reds, With that understanding, I have found them to be beautiful and creamy and very generously sized.


Beautiful Darks!

This review is for the set of 10 darks. These colors are beautiful and rich and filled a need in my collection. I love the softness of these pastels and the wonderful marks I can make using the flat sides and crisp edges.


colors not anything like pictured

The quality of these pastels is great, but for the reds, beware, these are mostly salmons and orange reds -- the picture is quite deceiving. This is Art Spectrum's fault, not Jacksons, but it's like whoever color corrected this photo wasn't trying to make it look accurate, just exciting. My set did also vary -- I didn't get the Red E, the deepest was Red C. So I was quite disappointed in the colors I actually received. I'm also very surprised the price of these sets has gone up so much in the last 2 months.



A small but versatile selection of greens which lay down nicely probably a little softer than unison. Prompt delviery as ever with the set well protected and presented in a robust cardboard box. Sticks are a good size and I thnk represent good value. Sticks are wrapped but the wrappers come of easily - bliss. Will certainly buy a couple more sets to take advantage of some of the Art Spectrum colours. Just a shame the full set are not available as indiviudal sticks
