So, how do you possibly recycle those long, broken-off pieces? It just so happens that the lead size of the Twistable pencils is the same lead size that's used by the the Pentel Eight Color Automatic Pencil. This is one of the coolest clutch pencils because it holds eight different colors at once. But the price for lead for it if you buy it from Pentel directly is highway robbery. It struck me that the pencil leads looked close in size, and I substituted one from a Twistable into the Pentel. It fit perfectly, and the Pentel can use lead lengths as short as 3/4", so even leads that before seemed unusable become usable again.
Hope that helps someone!
I think my children prefer the colored pencils because they are more forgiving when dropped. Once the crayon portion of a Twistable dislodges from the base, the product is useless. Their first pack of Twistables didn't last as long as they would have liked. If you have young children and supervise their drawing time, this probably won't be an issue.
Tips and tricks:
- Show children how to expose only a small amount of crayon at a time and never extend it fully out of the casing.
- To get a fine point, hold the Twistable at shallow angle. Scrape the tip along a piece of paper while rotating the pencil.
- Encourage older children to blend colors, warm up the product by drawing on scrap paper first. Then rub the pencil back and forth lightly on your art work in layers.
- The white pencil looks great on black construction paper and so do the blues and oranges.
- Help young coloring book artists use Twistables for small areas like eyeballs, belts, and shoes. Demonstrate how crayons are good for large areas like lawns, oceans, and the sky.
I find these great to work with. I wish they were available with more colors, but they are very bendable. They are sort of a mix between a colored pencil and a crayon in that they have a very slight crayon-type finish. I like this because it let's you lay down a fine line of color that is not obliterated by a second color. After a little experimentation you will see the benefit. Regular pencils can't achieve this effect.
These colors are also bendable if you use light strokes. Again, you can work with them to find out how to achieve numerous effects. It is also possible to create bold, vibrant colors, and there are sufficient colors to achieve beautiful shading. I have recently rediscovered the joy of coloring and find these pencils perfect for that purpose.
Others have listed the colors that come in the set. In case there is still doubt, there is a vibrant red. The only color without sufficient range, in my opinion, is blue. There are only 2 shades of blue, but neither are a true blue. Both tend toward the slightest blue-green shade. They are pretty colors, but there is also no light blue. There is a pretty shade of aqua.
The size of lead is durable but also small enough to make a fine line. They never need to be sharpened. I have used other brands of colored pencils as well as pastels, but this is definitely my favorite for coloring. I have several Creative Haven coloring books as well as some mandalas. These pencils are perfect for all of them.
