Info

PITT artists' pastel pencils, with their oil-free pastel leads, are used by artists not only as the perfect complement to pastel crayons for elaborating fine details, but also on their own. Many artists who enjoy pastel techniques and their versatility, but not the dirty hands and colored dust that accompany them, have opted to use these special pencils. PITT pastel pencils have a very compact lead which is economical to use. The lead contains a high level of pigment, making the pencils ideally suited both to drawing lines and shading, as well as blending and merging into delicate color transitions. The color selection in this range places a particular emphasis on the muted shades and earth tones that are especially important for pastel drawing.

All Faber-Castell pencils, pens and erasers use inorganic and synthetic materials or materials of plant origin. Faber-Castell have not initiated any animal testing on products or materials for 22 years, and do not use casein glue in packaging.

I love the fact that these pastel pencils create less dust that the crayons and give more accuracy for details.

Best soft pastel pencil set around and at a good price, can buy locally but Jackson’s better value. All our students now have them

Scared of using them as 4 brand new ones straight out of the tin failed to sharpen. The other 56 sharpened. I use a top of the range pencil sharpener £28. I will use them only for detail work.

Sure to be wonderful, but have not tried the contents of the tin yet.

Absolutely wonderful set. Nice rich colours, highly pigmented. Every colour from the set performs equally well. The pencils are easy to be sharpened with minimal breakage. The colours mix well together and with other pastel pencils and also on top of soft pastels and also can be laid well on top of each other up to 5-7 layers. The only minus is the small colour range - would prefer to have more colours especially a very dark but warm brown and purple.

These are my favourite pastel pencils. I use them for all of my animal portrait commissions as they are pigment rich but hard enough to sharpen to a point for fine detail. This set has a thoughtfully considered range of colours including useful neutrals as well as vibrant hues. The tin case has a simple but neat two-tier system which keeps the overall size down and makes it streamlined for easy transport. Perfect!
