The white pencil is not very useful on dark paper, (in fact the white pencil is one of the weaker parts of the set) but white can be used to blend layers of other colors or burnish.
These are a little bit tricky to sharpen but I take it slow and use the Staedtler manual sharpener, which works well.
I have a 72 colored pencil set from another manufacturer that cost a lot, but I like this set just as much, if not a bit more. Plus, one of those pencils broke inside in a few places, but I have yet to come across a broken Ergosoft core.
I wish the Ergosoft line was available in open stock and with more colors, but a) it's not like it's a huge bummer to buy a brand new set of colored pencils periodically and b) I can blend up almost any color I need right now with the set of 24.
This is a great set of artist quality colored pencils. I love the ergonomic triangular design - makes it so easy to shade and color evenly. Another reviewer mentioned the indistinguishable blue hues - I did not find this to be a problem at all, even among the other colors. Each pencil is a unique color. There is much to be desired in the brown spectrum, but the more vibrant colors are well represented. I would love a larger pack to see a wider range of hues!
But then I decided to test them in my mixed media journal and voila! The colors are much nicer on this kind of paper with a little tooth.
Some of the blues are basically indistinguishable from each other as well -- especially the two darkest shades. Wish there was a little more variation here -- maybe a nice sky blue instead of two dark blues.
Surprisingly many of the colors also look incredible on black gesso (mmmm delicious black gesso). Check out the attached image to see how they perform on a few different surfaces.
They are still not anywhere near as nice as Prismacolors, but I think they are worth keeping around for use in my mixed media journal. For coloring, I'm sticking with Staedtler pens and prismas
