Hi friends! This week I got my hands on new Prima watersoluble oil pastels! I wanted to give them a try and see if they are different that what I have on hand already.
I swatched them out along with some of the other similar products I had. Want to see the results? Watch the video!
I really liked them and found them to be high quality. I also think they would be a welcome addition to your craft room if you did not already own a similar product. Below is a rundown of the products I compared and found to be similar along with price points. Keep in mind that you can find better prices online and with coupons, I did not pay retail for any of these LOL!
I compared the Prima pastels (retails for $20 for set of 24) to:
- Portfolio Water-soluble Oil Pastels (set of 24 retails for $10)
- Faber Castell Gelatos and Gel Sticks (Gelatos set of 15 for $25, sets of 4 for $10, gel sticks set of 12 for $13)
- Lyra Watercolor Crayons (set of 24 retails for $39)
- Caran D’ache Watercolor crayons (set of 30 retail $71)
The Prima water-soluble pastels are beautiful high quality pastels. You can get them on sale for $16.99 at Hallmark Scrapbook (affiliate link)
I honestly do not see the need for these if you already have some of these other coloring media. They are good quality and fun to use but not that much different that what we already have. If you do not have any of the similar media they are a good buy. If there is a product you would like to see reviewed let me know in the comments below and I will see what I can do! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
