Top Customer Reviews
Lyras contain many bold and high intensity hues. A handful in this assortment are very similar in hue (i.e.: dark flesh & medium flesh; blue violet & delft blue; deep cobalt & light cobalt; scarlet lake & vermilion; lemon cadmium & light chrome yellow; lemon & canary; and ochre & light ochre). There is a more than adequate color variety, but they fall short in browns and neutrals. They are superb blenders (without the use of their 'splenders' which I find to be waxy and harder than the pencils themselves).
Out of the 6 different colored pencil brand sets I own, Faber-Castell Polychromos are the brand I use the most, but I find that Lyra Polycolors are often more fun to work with. Lyras seem more versatile in being able to work on various surfaces. They are well-suited to both smooth and medium tooth paper surfaces and I have found them to work well on wood. It's a great quality colored pencil for people of all ages and abilities.
What I don't love is that they're breaking. A lot. I've had them less than a month, and already quite a few are a lot shorter than would be reasonably expected.
Sometimes when you're colouring the lead starts to get wobbly. To start with if cut my losses and sharpen it when it breaks. Only to find that there were so many breaks that a quarter of the pencil was sharpened away. Now I try to keep the wobbly bit as long as possible.
I don't like to sharpen them, although it would be more precise, as often it exposes broken lead.
I have not dropped these, and the package arrived in tact and undamaged.
The breaking has only just become apparent, as I've only just had the need to sharpen.
As it's been nearly a month, and I have had use from the pencils, it's not worth sending back. With the cost of postage I might as well keep the broken pencils. But I won't be buying them again.
It's a pity, because when they do work they're gorgeous.
Overall, I am enjoying this set. My only complaint and disappointment is that my set did not include a dark orange (2000015) pencil and instead had two vermillion (2000017) pencils.
