But they do behave quite differently compared to traditional softer pastels. More like a middle ground between conte crayons and pastels. I find the hardness to be nupastelish or pastel pencil-like. definitely firmer than a pastel stick.

thanks all
I am getting some as gift and I have never heard of them before. Sounds like they might be good for getting color down and working over with a softer pastel..??? At any rate it will be nice to recieve them and see how I find them to be...
Thanks again for your input..
