In this video, I’ll demonstrate using a set of 48 Blick Pastels that are a less expensive alternative for a beginner interested in exploring pastels. I use the pastels on both Canson paper and Pastelmat. My conclusion was that the set is a good starting point but I would highly recommend using the better papers in conjunction with this set. The set currently retails for $13.63 at Blick.


Happy Painting,
