The pencils are excellent. They are a bit harder than most, and so lean more to drawing rather than shading. The box is an indulgence that is just right for the grandchild who shows a little genuine talent.

Sadly I put the box away after I found that reviews warned about lightfastness as an issue for most of the pencils in the Studio line. No information on lightfastness from Derwent, so you don’t know which ones to trust. Maybe okay to use for detail in illustration that is only for scanned digital images. Such a shame because they are beautiful and refined colors, some, like water blue, are very ethereal and not carried anywhere else.
