Great color. It's nice to have a colored pencil and watercolor capability all in one product. Enabling the artist to do detailed and free flowing work a lot easier without the need to have a ton of supplies around. The little grippers on the sides of the pencils make for easy holding and keep it from slipping out of your hands. Love the fact that these are also environmentally friendly which is why I decided to try these over my usual brand and I don't regret it. I'd highly recommend these to anyone.

The pencils were used for a project at school by 300 students. They work very well: the colors transfer easily, they don't break often, and when you sparsely apply the water, it becomes a beautiful watercolor work of art. The children (ages 5-11) thoroughly enjoyed them. Another plus is that they come from renewable forest sources. They are definitely an excellent value for the price.

For the price (~$13), these watercolor pencils were a good purchase. There are a few small problems, but overall I think they are still quite nice.
pros:
- doesn't fall over
- includes a flesh color
- nearly all of them blend fairly well
(small) cons:
-I'm used to using soft watercolor pencils, but these are much harder. I wouldn't recommend using one of these with a very sharpened tip, since it seems like it would bruise the watercolor paper (instead try to make the tip a bit blunt).
-One of the pencils (noted in an attached picture) would not blend with the water at all... but at least there is another pencil in the set close enough in color to replace it...
-There is not a dark green pencil. Though it appears as though there is one, upon trying the pencils out I learned this was not the case.
** There are a couple of pictures attached. I tested each pencil out by first shading without water, then drawing two stars (the second one is lighter than the first) and apply water over them, then drawing a small rectangle and brushing water over it to draw a larger rectangle.

I use these for an atypical purpose: face painting! I had a MUCH more expensive set of watercolor pencils that I used for face painting (for 7 years) up until I purchased these a few months ago. These are INFINITELY better and 1/3 the price! I paint my childcare kids' and other children's faces with these and they are sooo comfy, don't roll away from me (thank you, triangular shape), write effortlessly and painlessly, and have bright colors. An awesome bonus: they're eco-friendly! They work well for art, too, and my kids enjoy them on paper or on my face. Who am I to sqaush their creativity?! Buy this set if you need watercolor pencils...you'll love them as much as we do!

I received this as a gift and absolutely love it. I'm a great fan of Faber-Castell products and these watercolor pencils which also happen to be eco-friendly are great. The colors are vivid and work well when used for blending, coloring, and painting. The triangular barrels place less strain on the fingers and the grips on the pencils (little bumps) make for an easy and firm grip. The lead is more durable than some of the other brands I've used. This set is great quality for the price.

We purchased these pencils for our 6 year old daughter because we wanted watercolors on the go... you can draw then convert to a watercolor painting later with a wet paintbrush vs having to use water during the entire process.

This is handy for long road trips... get to your destination, then use a little water with the paintbrush provided. Very neat and tidy this way.

They are easy to hold via the grips, smooth when drawing, and with a little practice, easy to turn into a water color painting. They sharpen easily too without much waste.

These work fine for colored pencils, but they don't produce enough pigment to really use as watercolors. Also, they are very difficult to sharpen evenly- the "lead" is often off-center so sharpening produces a point that is half wood. Most disappointing is that a number of the pigment leads slipped out of the shaft entirely, leaving us with empty pencils. Not at all the quality we were expecting.
