Love, Love my colored pencils
from Cumberland, MD
These colored pencils are very nice. The pigment goes onto the paper in a very smooth manner. The colors are fright and true. I feel that these are a great addition to any colored pencil artist supplies. They also "play nice" with other mediums when doing something in mixed media.
Best pencils ever!
from High point, nc
Great quality pencils! They blend really well and you can put a lot of pressure without breaking.
Polychromos 120 Set
from Fort Collins, CO
I can't really add much other than I love the way these pencils feel in the hand and on paper. Silky smooth, uniform color. Blick packaged them carefully, and they arrived on time and in perfect condition.
I would purchase more of thesebut I purchased the largest
from Indianapolis, In
I got in on this adult coloring RAGE so currently I'm using thesefor that. I had purchased a smaller set from "Blick" at someprevious time an decided to get the largest - which is 60 colors.For color and shading they can't be beat. Also they are great forusing in card making.
Faber-Castell Polychromas Pencils
from Maine, USA
Great colored pencils. I use them for coloring. They layer well, blend well, are excellent quality pencils. Price was very reasonable for my set of 60.
I will be buying this product again and again!!
from Orlando, FL
I had heard great things about them and all was true!! Wonderful smooth application and no breakage of lead or wood casings which happens so often with the prismacolors.
Smooth and Full of bright color!
By Linda the double duty painter
I like to use the colored pencils to draw the item I am getting ready to paint in watercolor or acrylic so I don't have to worry about pencil lines showing. They also work to fill in some of the tiny spaces hard to get to with a brush.Double duty painter?
Love these pencils
from Worcester, MA
These pencils are great to work with. They blend easily, even when using in combination with my Prismacolors. I actually like these a litte better than the Prismacolors because I don't have to sharpen them as often and the cores don't break. The colors go down easily without much pressure, making them so nice to work with, and my hands don't get tired as fast as with some other pencils I've colored with. All in all I give these five stars. I'm very happy with this purchase.
from San Francisco
This set of 120 oil based colored pencils are beautifully packaged in a streamlined, high quality dark wood double decker box. I was delighted to see the pencils came pre-sharpened. A star was removed for the long wait for the product to arrive (2 weeks?), but I must say the careful shipping packing assured no dings in the wood or problems with the pencils. Love it!
