Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Student Grade Pastels I highly recommend Goldfaber 72 piece sets to my students who are new to pastel and who can't afford a similarly sized set of artist grade pastels and are curious if they might like working in this medium. There are other brands of student grade pastels, but they are cut with so much chalk and fillers or are infused with air bubbles that dusting is beyond control. Goldfaber pastels dust more than artist grade pastels, but not as much as other brands of student grade pastels. Some student brands don't offer as many colors, and few have as much subtlety, or rich, dark colors other than black, compared to Goldfaber. Replacement sticks are unavailable, but by then the artist either decides against pastel, or has started adding artist quality pastels to their collection. The size of the sticks are perfect for using on the side to fill larger areas or on end for smaller marks. The corners will produce nice fine lines for details. As with other student grade art materials, I would not expect them to resist fading, but I would expect the pigments to be less toxic than professional grade materials, yet they should only be used as intended. As with all pastels, you don't want the dust in your lungs, so any accumulations of dust should not be blown or vacuumed by non-HEPA-filtered machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not subtle, but brilliant where you want It is easy to pull out this set and do a whole painting, although that painting will be very, very saturated. The colors are wonderful, but I make sure to have other sets within reach, too, so that my painting isn't garish. Using reins, this is a great set, especially the range of greens. The box is a great size for plein air, just not as stand alone.
