COMPARISON: I have applied this set of 36 Polychromos on a template that ironically has the Crayola Watercolor 24 count set and a Spectrum Brights Marker set. The Polychromos produce colors similar in saturation similar to the Spectrum marker set and even close to the Crayola Watercolor (these are much better than regular Crayola pencils in smoothness). Polychromos are just smoother in color "lay-down" and "better" in regards to pressure necessary to achieve that smooth rich consistency. If you are not sure you want to invest the money in these, just order 1 -2 individual pencils from .. Blick, Amazon, an art supply store (haven't seen them sold that way at my local stores.. FYI) or where ever you can find them individually. I bought 2 from .. Blick and they were a reasonable cost but they just made me want more of them.. Maybe it's just me, but they seem much easier on my hands, but then again..might be that "spreading butter" factor. The cost online was so "cheap" you can probably come out ahead buying this set of 36 count and then individually purchasing additional colors you feel you need later on.. Just a thought.. If you are on the fence, I really recommend buying 1-2 individual pencils first and go from there. You can even buy a Prismacolor individually to compare (they are at my local art stores). You won't have any regrets that way..
BUDGET: If budget is your primary concern, then buy a Watercolor Crayola set or a Faber-Castell set that's less expensive (skip the art grips and just buy the set with the Koala). You can always buy an individual Polychromos or Prismacolor and decide if the difference in cost is worth it to you. The Prismacolor Scholar is pretty nice for the price too (my set isn't complete, bought used, names are added where colors are missing though for the 60 ct set). I have some other brands colored on the templates too. Each is labeled at the top and/or bottom of the columns.
TIN BOX: It's surprisingly thin.. Not much taller than the pencils themselves. Opens and closes easily. Nice storage option.
Hope this helps ;)
I highly recommend this set and would put them up against any other oil based Artist Color Pencil set on the market anywhere. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed in the quality of the renderings that are possible with these pencils. Any artist I believe will be more than satisfied with the results they get from this line of oil based colored pencils. Do not be hesitant to give them a try.
People! I DID NOT EXPECT TO FALL IN LOVE with these pencils. OH MY GOODNESS. WOW! I feel like I can blend without baby oil stains on my coloring paper or my hand completely falling off. Compared to the Pitt Pens the colors are not as vivid but compared to any coloring pencil on the market, These color are vivid and smooth. I had to purchase the 72 count of these pencils I will not be without them on my coloring journey. I am a beginning colorist and with these pencils, I feel like Picasso!. The ease of use on your hands will allow you to color for hours.
Now my only down fall is how to sell my 150 count prismacolor pencils.
