These wonderful pencils are a great asset to the serious artist. They blend beautifully and work very well in conjunction with Prismacolor's Premier pencils. While the Premier pencils are softer and can build up a more opaque finish, Verathin pencils have the ability to be sharpened to a fine point (for a hard line), and result in a slightly sheer effect, allowing the paper to show thru a bit. One of the top favored brands by artists everywhere. Don't let the price scare you. These pencils are a worthy investment. You can't go wrong with Prismacolor!

Verithins are semi-transparent; even when you apply more pressure, the layers/paper beneath is still slightly visible. If you're looking for opacity and dark value, buy the Premier line and not the Verithin. If you're looking for a great sketching colored pencil set, Verithins are it. They erase okay if you don't apply too much pressure, whereas Premier pencils aren't that great due to worse erasability and a heavier color laydown.

When used with the Premier pencils, I've found that the Verithins are an essential tool. Without them, it's far more difficult to get accurate light values, especially when blending. They add a subtle nuance to your drawings that the Premiers can't match. I really didn't think I'd ever need or want the Verithins, but with this price and their surprising versatility, you can't pass it up.

My box of Verithins didn't come presharpened-- buy a new sharpener. I started sharpening with a fairly used blade and it chewed up the pencils. During use, these don't break easily, even under a lot of pressure, which makes them great for a young artist.

The 36 set does not include Process Red or Non-Photo Blue. I bought them individually from Dick Blick for less than a dollar each, and they fit right in the box.

These pencils are good for what they are supposed to do. Unlike the soft lead version, these are for detailing areas where the soft lead would ruin detail. Yes, they put down thin color, instead of the rich color like the soft lead; But they aren't supposed to be used for large areas of color. For example, you use these to work against lines, so you won't go outside of the line. You work the color in and up to the line and THEN you use the soft lead to carefully finish the detailed area if it still isn't rich enough in color. For large areas, either use the soft lead pencils or get the prismacolor unleaded art stix. Hope this helps those who are not sure how to use verithin pencils. :)

I previously wrote a review on my extreme disappointment with crayola's sad excuse for colored pencils. In short, you sharpen them at your risk. They're brittle like you wouldn't believe. I'm a Prismacolor convert. I emailed Sanford Corp. for the colors included in the set and pasted their response below. Happy coloring.

"The colors in the 36 count set include:
Lemon Yellow / Canary Yellow / Spanish Orange / Goldenrod / Orange / Pale Vermillion / Pumpkin Orange / Poppy Red / Crimson Red / Process Red / Light Peach / Dahlia Purple / White / Warm Grey 20% / Aquamarine / Grass Green / Apple Green / Peacock Green / Olive Green / Ultramarine Blue / Peacock Blue / Indigo Blue / Cerulean Blue / Violet / Parma Violet / Deco Pink / Terra Cotta / Dark Brown / Tuscan Red / Black / Cool Grey 70% / True Green / Silver /Gold / Dark Umber / True Blue"

I've tried the regular Prismacolors and Crayolas. The Verithins are the best for cartooning or illustrating which is my primary use for them. Considering the others are less quality for higher price, these are the best deal out there. I buy the 36 packs by the half dozen (for real!) and give them away to my neices and nephews and any other young friend interested in drawing and coloring.

Since all the good stores are selling these for under $20 for the 36 count box, its a great way to get a lot of good colors for not a lot of money. Why Toyzzz thinks they can get $50 is beyond me, they are everywhere for under $20.

They look best on smooth paper but even sketch paper looks pretty good.

The fold over box is a nice addition too and makes them easy to work with.

The only colors they left out and would have to be purchased separatly are the colorless blender and the Non-photo blue. If you don't know what those are, you won't need them anyway...

These pencils are very hard and are not recommended to use with large areas. The colors are bright and can make very nice images, depending on how you use them, but in general, they would be mostly used for outlining, fine detail, or sketch work. Also, due to the hardness of the pencils, it will be hard to use hand held pencil sharpeners. It is recommended to use an electric sharpener. Another thing because of the hardness, the pencils will sometimes have a tendency to scratch the paper you are using. This will result in parts of the paper having lines that will stay white due to it being impressed.

Pros:
-Fine detail
-Bright colors
-Assortment of colors
-Easel box
-Great for sketching

Cons:
-Hard with hand held sharpeners
-Bad for larger pieces (not good for filling in color)
-So hard it will sometimes scratch your paper, leaving white lines (usually in larger works)

Overall, they are decent. I would have rated them a 2 stars, but since they are good for sketching, I add a star. This way, you can use these cheaper pencils for concept type sketches then use the softer pencils for the real thing. These would also probably be good for someone that is trying colored pencil for the first time.
