Re: Opinion of Derwent Pastel Set
I like the Derwent pastels pencils myself, they are quite soft and require to be sharpened with a craft knife or blade otherwise they can tend to break. I find they are easy to blend with ones fingers and are dry and powdery which aids the blending.
There are issues with the light fastness of some of the pencils but this is also the case with the other brands of such pastel pencils also!
Every product will be viewed with a mixed response, peoples preferences differ! Also mentioned within this thread is Faber Castell's Pitt Pastel pencils, another pencil which i like but these are harder than the Derwent pencils and i tend to reserve these for very fine detail.
