I've tried Prismacolor Verithin - too expensive. I have tried just plain old Crayola brand crayons - too waxy. ...these Crayola colored pencils are by far the best I've used for the adult coloring books.
What was becoming a chore (and costly) has now turned into a bona fide relaxing and creative activity.
I attached one of my completed coloring pages - hope the brightness shows through.
What do I mean by "perform exceptionally well?" Let me break it down to a short list so I can clearly present what I discovered with these pencils:
1. The pencils have a generally good laydown of color, with the caveat of the few colors that don't work well (true also of my most expensive colored pencils, I must say). Laydown is smooth and uniform, with bright, rich color.
2. The pencils sharpen very well, with ease of cutting through the wood casing and with the color lead core supporting a very fine point when desired.
3. The lead core seems generally resistant to breakage (a problem that can occur with most pencils, even the most expensive).
4. The pencils are physically light.
5. The set comes in 50 colors, which is a great size for lots of drawing without committing to large collection sizes.
Are these pencils as good as the best Swiss, French, and German colored pencils? No.Read more ›
PROS: -- Sharpens well with hand-held sharpener. These folks who had their colored pencils chewed up with every re-sharpening, were they using an electric sharpener? Because you shouldn't, not even on kid-type pencils like these. I prefer the two-hole manual Staedtler barrel sharpener (SKU 31901 93963) because it has a regular hole for lead (which they call, more correctly, "graphite") pencils and a slightly larger one for "graphite + colour." Designed in Germany, manufactured in China. The user can sharpen a colored pencil conservatively to expose as little tip as possible or more aggressively (grind harder) to get more of the side of the color rod showing for shading purposes. I have sketched these Crayola colored pencils in an art book and tried each time to overwhelm or break them under pressure, and they didn't; and then I hand-sharpened them to expose as much color core as possible; they still didn't break but left nice shaded color.
-- An almost incredibly wide range of colors. While the colors are bold and cheerful, they aren't as candy-colored as Crayola's traditional crayons though some of the colors -- or at least color concepts -- are the same (remember "Violet Red"?). This assortment contains seven shades of blue alone, most quite handsome except that I think turquoise is a little too green. Yellow is pretty much a wash-out because of the wash-out effect of our yellow sun; most such art media don't do a good job with yellow.Read more ›
They have hard lead that gives very smooth laydown. With these pencils, it is always best to start out light and layer your colors until you get a sleek, natural result.
The problem with Crayola is that the lead is too hard for blending, i.e, 'pushing' the colors into one another. If you are the type of artist who is into such things, I suggest Prismacolor pencils. But you can mix a little with a white Crayola pencil, so give it a try if you like.
Overall, wonderful for hardcore traditional artists or beginning scribblers. It definately won't burn a hole in your pocket.
