I ordered pastels which to my amazement arrive with barely one stick cracked, compared to other stores I have purchased from online they were perfect. The pastels worked fantastic and I would recommend not only MisterArt.com but the pastels for any kind of art work.
Rated by: Deborah M. in Casa Grande, AZ
I only received half of a package of the pastels, so I called and reported it. Dealing with their representative was awesome... she checked on the status and then sent me another full box right away. I will definately do business again - A+++ representative!! Very efficient - no hassles. Great experience.

Great color. They last a long time and go a long way.
Rated by: Pam F. in Turlock, CA
Very soft. Easy to blend, but a little brittle. Good variety of colors.
Rated by: Ellen G H. in rochester, NY
great pastels at a great price
Rated by: Judi W. in Vancouver, WA
As the owner of an art school, it is important to recommend and use quality products. Our students (children and adults)have used Alphacolor pastels for years. The pastels are soft enough to blend easily yet don't crumble. The white doesn't cover quite as well as some of the more expensive pastels, but overall I find them very good.
Rated by: Angela K. in Plano, TX
A great product for exposing young artists to pastels.

Rated by: emily k. in brockport, NY
these are a great value, they are a bit bulky but get the job done and produce a high quality look
Rated by: Linda C. in Mount Pleasant, MI
This was purchased as a gift for a teenage friend. I thought the colors were very good and she seems pleased.
Rated by: Judith B. in San Francsico, CA
I purchased the set of 12 basic colors to use for calligraphy background colors. My first experiment was just to draw a slight weave in orange and yellow and then rub the pigments into the paper before writing over it with walnut ink. THis went well. The lines did remain pretty visible, but the deeply pigmented and the more pale were equally easy to write over. The next page i tested more colors. Some seem to adhere to the paper better than others. In particular, the pink and pale blue never really adhered to the paper. When the colors are drawn on to the paper they don't seem to blend as well as when using the technique shown in the caligraphy book of shaving the pigment off with a knife. My low adhesion making tape works as a fine mask. Unlike the frisket, it doesn't seem to lift the colors underneath. Another test was with the frisket. I used the shaving technique and mixed yellow, green, and blue pigments on the page. It made a lovely color background for the caligraphy. A final test was to see how gum sandarac and pounce (pumice dust) might affect the adhesion of the pigment to paper. While i think there was a slight improvement in adhesion with the gum sandarac, the pounce seemed to keep pigment from being rubbed into the paper.

These pastels work wonderfully no matter what you're trying to create. The colors blend very well together and the whites and blacks do not hinder progress as most do in my experiance.
