Great pencils for the coloring fad
By the librarian
Comments about Fantasia Colored Pencils:
I bought three boxes (36 each) for the coloring programs we hold at the library. They are just the right hardness (the ones we used before (a loan from my personal collection) were deemed too hard. These are great for shading and layering, they hold their points well, and the people who attended our most recent program gave up on the gel pens and markers and created fabulous designs with these pencils. Two people logged on to the Internet at the end of the program and bought sets for themselves.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fantasia colored pencils 36 pack
from Madison, WI
The pencils transfer on to the paper without having to put a lot of pressure into coloring. Even the lightest touch has a nice shade. I also like the different shades available for each color, gives you some choices in shades when using the same color.

Blick Colored Pencils
By Lisa the Skater
from Lancaster, Ohio
You can find cheaper colored pencils but they are not the quality of Blick pencils. The cheaper ones I bought broke constantly and were hard to sharpen. Blick pencils are sturdy, easy to sharpen, and allow for smooth coloring. I use Blick pencils for coloring in adult coloring books for a stress release or relaxing activity.
Excelent Art Pencils For My Adult Coloring Books!!
from Golden Valley, AZ
I am a Hand Quilter who loves ALL THINGS COLOR!! I bought these pencils to color in my new Tula Pink coloring book. I had only ink pens, but they are terrible for coloring, as they don't blend and I didn't have enough colors. I picked Fantasia, because of the fantastic price for 36 colors!! The pencils have exceeded ALL MY EXPECTATIONS!! They blend beautifully, and you can lay down a lighter color, and lay over a darker color, and get a whole NEW color! Tula Pink is a Major fabric designer in the Quilting world. As many of you may know, fabric designers ARE ARTISTS, because they have to paint or watercolor their creations before putting them on fabric. Coloring has increased my artisticness for putting together different colors that I normally would not use. My daughter is an artist, so I'm back, buying her a 36 set of coloring pencils, the Faber-Castell sharpener, and one of your Adult Coloring books. The one book I picked, actually explains what mandalas are and what they are used for. So, with the pencils, and the book, she can hopefully learn more about art and make color pencil art. You would be surprised how much quilting, makeup artistry, and Dick Blick all go together in helping me learn more about color! When I'm doing eye makeup, I now blend in all kinds of different colors, and I've gotten much better at contouring the face the way an artist would actually 'paint' a face. I'm also very excited to try some of Dick Blick's paint brushes for the application of makeup! I see potential for even application for nail art, too!! I will be back, looking for more 'cross over' tools into the quilting, makeup, and fashion world. ART is EVERYWHERE!!

Better than expected
from Boise ID
I got these for my 8 year old son so could have his own "good set" of pencils in a tin like mom .... I tried them out and actually like these nearly as much as my prisma's and more than some of the other much more expensive pencils I have tried. Colors are very vibrant, they hold the points fairly well, and blend really nicely. I am going to order myself a set now for on the go - they are a low enough price I don't mind risking them to take out and about with me which I won't do with my Prisma's or Derwents, but nice enough to do nice coloring when at the park etc..
Very nice colored pencil set!

I use the pencil in conjugation with my extreme dot to dot books and I love them. With the variety, I can even do shading as well as fill in. It gives them a special touch.
Blends easily and the colors are vibrant
By Artist Duded
These colors pencils work beautifully next to colored ink; they compliment each other very well.They're also very durable; I've drop these pencils so many times yet the lead doesn't have internal breakage.

Best original colors!
By Dianne Schuch Lindsey
from Houston, Texas
I have tested many products and when using these pencils for my own application I keep coming back to the same pencils. In my boxes of thousands, I fall back on the #9 crimson, #24 and #26 bright rich blues. I end up rebuying the entire set just to have these colors which absolutely cannot be duplicated. The soty of how these pencils are made is very facinating. You will truly enjoy this product. Rich, buttery, easily blended. I have both the regular and water color. No breakage totally reliable.

Fantasia colour pencil
By B. C. Masters
from Strongsville, OH
I purchased a 36 set of these pencils over a year ago. They work OK, but they are hard to blend and act more like student color pencils than artist pencils. I have better luck with Prismacolor. However they are a step above Crayola. But for serious artists like myself I would recommend a more higher quality pencil.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
