These pencils are great for fine detailing. When coloring large sections, it tends to get a bit tedious. The regular prismacolor pencils are great for large areas, though they have a very thick lead so they color like crayons. But I love these pencils for coloring small or thin spots. I recommend an electric pencil sharpener for these; I used two different regular ones at first and the point kept breaking to the point where I barely had enough pencil to use the electric sharpener.

Originally, I purchased these totally by mistake. I like the creamy flow of Prismacolor regular colored pencils for the work I do. And, that's just it. What effect do you want to create in your art? I only used these for detail, fine line work and embellishing. They are so hard that yes, they are virtually pediment (not eraseable). I find they also gouge deep into the paper so you have to use paper or canvas that holds up under pressure. I use them so rarely that my small set will last for years, that's because of the hardness too. Of all my art supplies, they are a very limited and specific use tool. For your style, they might be an inspiration.

Other great "soft" colored pencils are regular Prismacolor (you can get open stock - one at a time, at Michaels and try them out), Derwent and Dick Blick has their own brand, very inexpensive with colors that the other Artist brands don't have.

I had used a couple Verithin pencils previously so decided to get a set. I like the detail I get with them. Also, when using paper with a little more "tooth", Verithin pencils do a nice job of covering the paper whereas a softer pencil doesn't fill in quite as well. They work very well in combination with the softer Prismacolor pencils. My only criticism of this product is that I would like to see a wider range of colors, especially in the brown and fleshtone shades, because I do portrait work of people and animals. I think anyone who works in colored pencil art would appreciate what these pencils have to offer.

The price for these Prismacolor Verithin pencils was just right. I'd been keeping an eye on them for awhile, and this set showed up for less than $15(Fall 2012 price) so I ordered this set of 24 pencils. I love the Prismacolor Premiere soft core pencils so much I asked for the big - really big - set for my birthday. :) The only problem with the soft core, and the reason I got the Verithins is that they can hold a sharp point temporarily, if you're careful, but it's wasteful and annoying to repeatedly put a sharp tip on the same pencil repeatedly when the pencils run more than $1-2 each retail. These Verithin pencils are the answer to the problem of a sharp point which you can't get with the soft core Prismacolor pencils.

These are HARD leaded pencils, as advertised. Be careful with your paper, as these will hold a point sharp enough to tear it. I recommend having a hard surface beneath your paper, etc. when coloring with these, a soft layer underneath will cause 'drag' and allow more punctures or tiny rips in your paper. I have already used these with the teeny tiny border around the pics in a coloring book from Dover, which had some very small, intricate design elements. Results were excellent!

You may wish, once you try these, for more matching colors than are available, but many of these are chosen to cover a specific color 'group', such as orange-reds, crimson reds, blue-violets, bright greens, etc. Included with the colors are white, a light gray and black. THESE ARE NOT PRESHARPENED. If you prefer not to have this chore to do when your pencils arrive, you'll have to pay more for pre-sharpened Verithins.

This package turns into a nice, very well-designed 'easel' for ease of choosing pencils.

The product arrived very quickly and is of high quality. The arrangement of colors within the set provide a vibrant range of colors for the beginning artist to explore this versatile artistic medium, which was once used primarily by illustrators but has increasingly become prominent in works of fine art. Will order again when current set has been completely worn down.

These are great. They're sturdy pencils and they blend well. My only complaint, and it's a mild one at that, is that they didn't come sharpened. It was, however, pretty dumb of me to assume that they'd do all the work for me, though. ;]

I needed a color pencil to give me depth and vivid color when sketching still life images. A lot of artists use these pencils so I decided to find out why. It did not take me long to discover their versatility and precision. Blending and shadowing were not difficult to achieve and I was impressed by the amount of techniques I can successfully achieve with the help of Prisma color.

I mainly use these pencils for detail work or light sketches for small works. Soft lead is the only reason I prefer Prismacolor, less pressure results in a lighter shade and more pressure is darker--can't easily do that with Crayola or other mid-strength lead. Prismacolor is also great for experimenting with the blending pencil.

A tip of advice for those who have sharping issues or broken leads. Electric/battery powered is better for these pencils and don't over sharpen. Try microwaving for 25-35 seconds or bake the pencils on 250 degrees for ~3-5 minutes and it'll remelt the pencil wax lead back together. Also don't drop your pencils or the box, you'll cause cracks in the lead.
