Carbothello Pastel Pencils
These pastels are soft, vibrant, and easily blendable.
These pastels are harder, but still vibrant. I usually use these for more precise details.
These are compressed pastel chalk. I use them for blocking in background areas, much like paintings.
White Charcoal Pencils
This is my favorite white pencil to use. I use it for the final, sharpest and brightest details.
I use these pastels for deep, rich colors.
These soft pastels are great for beginner because they are lower in price but still have a smooth application and vibrant colors.
Polychromos Colored Pencils
When I used colored pencils, these are usually my go to. They aren't as waxy as Prisma Colors, so they layer better, in my opinion.
While this paper is pricey, it is my favorite pastel paper. It has texture, but it's not too gritty.
