    I have been an artist for over 40 years and I can tell you that all of the watersoluble paint sticks are not oils, pastels, or what other maufacturers call "oil pastels".


    I have used them with charcoal as well, and they are a 4 star product, because how fast you will go is the only reason I give them a rating.


    They achieve the richest, lushest blend, are excellent for mixed media techniques and also break down nicely with water to produce more of a water color finish, they blend very easily by hand, creating gorgeous tonal transitions.


    They are bright with a variety of colors including black and white, and have been included in my portfolio as a picture of all 24 colors.


    I only give them four stars because they are a "student" grade product, but I would give them a much lower rating due to the fact that several of the colors are not very lightfast.
