For reference I have used Faber Castell Polychromos, Prismacolor Premier, Prismacolor Veritthins, Marco Raffines, the White Luminance from Caran D' Ache, Crayola and CrazArt colored pencils. I think these are good but not to the standards of the Polychromos or Prismacolor Premiers.
They do come with some awesome colors. They have 2 blacks (lamp black and black), as well as two whites (white and soft white) The soft white is the best white I have came across! I have bought the individual Luminance white from Caran D' Ache, which prior to buying this was my best white. This soft white is indeed soft! it seems softer than a crayon. Whats great is even after you have another color down it will still show up over the top of it! Much like the Uni Ball Signo White gel pen, or the Gelly Roll White gel pen! But since it is so soft you use it quite fast so be careful!!
They have a great selection of greens, blues, purples, and pinks. They are sadly lacking in greys and browns. I had a hard time coming up with good skin and hair colors which was unfortunate. You think that you are getting so many pastels that you never find in other colored pencil sets but once I took them out of their original case and organized them by color (I'm a little OCD) I found that you don't really get a huge difference between the brands that are out there. I will show this in my pictures. In the picture with my color charts Prismacolor (has 150 colors) is on the left, Holbeins (has 150 colors) are in the Center and Polychromos (has 120 colors) are on the right. I also made a color chart according to their list hopefully you guys can copy that if you want to. I rearranged it to my specifics (color-coded) so that I could show you how alike in tones to Prismacolor and Polychromos they are.
I use the T'Gaal pencil sharpener and found that they sharpen nicely and hold a point as well as the Polychromos. They do hold a point longer than the Prismacolors which are softer.
I was a little disappointed in there ability to blend! I am heavy handed with coloring so that may have had something to do with it although I don't have trouble blending with Prismacolors, Polychromos, or Marco Raffines. I could not get more than a couple of layers down without great difficulty. For example on my Jasmine Griffith Beckett coloring (the purple girl) I tried to get it to blend but it kept tearing my page (see pictures!). I thought the picture had been ruined :(. But I managed to save it with some workable fixative that I have. I sprayed it and let it dry then touched it up. I did find that with my other picture on the cheaper create space paper (it's like copy paper) it didn't tear no matter how much I colored (just make sure to put paper under it cuz it makes dents!). I believe that this is due to the fact that these pencils are VERY opaque. Once you put one color down the tooth of the paper is pretty much flat and doesn't want to take any more color. This is fine for some colorings like my Doodle Invasion picture but for a picture with people it is very difficult since you need to use many colors to get it to look realistic.
Also I like to make individual strands in my hair when I color people and I could not get these pencils to do that!
They don't sell them individually so when you run out you would have to buy the whole set again which is crazy expensive!
Overall I would recommend these pencils despite the downfalls! I will just use them with my Polychromos and Prismacolors to get them to work to their best abilities.
this is a soft pencil, softer than the poly and does not hold a point well working in small spaces like in colouring books. especially when compared to the pablo which is an awesome pencil.
Cons: the darker colours are really “dirty” creating a lot of pencil dust. you have to be very careful brushing it away. i use a large brush.
they can look blotchy and do not layer well at all. forget trying to blend to make a new colour.
the pencils do not blend with other brands.
there doesn’t seem to be any constancy from one pencil to the the other. one colour fills in hills and valleys without much pressure but other simply don’t. the darker the colour the hard it is to work with.
the trays and box had ripped corners, making for an box that was rather unstable. the company wrote me twice asking me if i liked my purchase and my reply that the box was really defective. there was no answer.
so, i love the pastel colours but those are not enough to make buying the whole set of 150 worthwhile.
polys are very much better.
The tiger coloring was in Prisma Premier but these pastels were used in the flowers and the background.
