Looking forward to new art coloring medium. Can't wait.
from Simpsonville, SC
Haven't begun new project with this medium yet.
Lays down color with little effort
I was using Craz-Art and dipped my pencil in Vasoline to lay down color. When I tried that with PolyChromos, it feathered on the edges. I then laid down all my colors in an area, and used a cone sponge to blend with Vasoline. It worked beautifully.

Best Ever Gift to Myself
from Northern California
Yes, they are expensive, even on sale but worth it. I bought the full set of 120 pencils. They are the most beautiful pencil set I have worked with and I use them every day. They exhibit the right amount of pigmentation with no waxy bloom because they are oil-based. (I use the Faber-Castell vinyl dust free eraser to erase and blend, along with other tools, but really enjoy the Sakura electric eraser which works well with the oil base. Infinite shading is possible, and I appreciate the third tray of colors which are very nice for portraiture and shading. They are the best gift I have ever given myself!
from Wauseon, OH
These Faber Castell colored pencils are PREMIUM QUALITY. I am using them to color in stamped images and adult coloring books.
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.
