Before and After
My beautiful new Stabilo CarthOthello pastel pencils, which I got for super-cheap on eBay (in itself a rarity, because most things worth buying on eBay are outrageously over-priced)!
This is what they look like after a week of use!
This is mostly because pastel pencils are insanely hard to sharpen with a knife and just about impossible to sharpen with a hand-held sharpener! Does anyone know to sharpen pastel pencils properly?
