The Blue Earth Pastels take a traditional approach to color theory and color wheel arrangement. The Blue Earth colors are organised in the nineteenth century manner: by hue, value and intensity. This sensible color wheel arrangement makes finding the right color with the correct value quick and easy.

Only lightfast, high density mineral pigments are used in the manufacture of Blue Earth Pastels. The pastels are almost square in shape and are on the very soft end of the hardness scale. Each stick has a number imprinted for easy identification. Blue Earth offer an impressive color selection, with new Turquoise, Nearly Neutral Warm and Nearly Neutral Cool lines recently added to the original color ranges.

Blue Earth Pastels are available as single pastels or in boxed sets of 6, 12, 21 and 28 sticks. The 6 and 12 stick sampler boxes are an easy way for artists to test the unique feel and handling qualities of Blue Earth Pastels. The 21 stick sampler boxes feature the seven-tone structure that is common to all the Blue Earth colors. With seven tones it is possible for an artist to paint anything, even with a limited color range.

Of the large 28 stick boxes, six represent the primary colors (warm and cool) and four boxes are devoted to the secondary colors. Each contains the pure color hue represented in six values from light to dark and twelve greyed variations. The remaining 28 stick boxes are composed of neutral colors.

These are my favorite so far and I have tried Sennelier, Mount Vision, Unison, Mungyo Gallery and soft as well as extra soft Art Spectrum according to the softest of the "soft" brands. I was able to find the exact colors I needed to do what I needed to do by using the colors that are posted on this site. These Blue earth are buttery soft and very easy to tell what color you are picking up because it looks like the color it actually puts down. I will be buying a whole set.



Challenges Sennelier and Scmincke as the softest and most velvety soft pastels going. So glad to have discovered them. However, sets are not cheaper than buying singly and the unusual arrangement of value/hue sets sometimes mean buying singly meets our needs better than sets.



Very soft, like velvet. Quite expensive but I can see why when compared to other pastels.



Beautiful colours
