Fun to use
from Leonardtown, MD
Comments about Lyra Graphite Crayons:
These are fun to use because of their fat size. I purchased both the water soluble and the ones that were just marked graphite. I will use the both but I was a little disappointed that the regular graphite tends to smear when it gets wet. I know most graphite does, but was hoping there was a difference. They will all get good use though,
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Just Another Artist
I use the graphite crayons as lead only, but also with water for a really cool effect. I would definitely recommend these to artists looking to try something new.
from New Hampshire
I was introduced to this at one of my art classes. We used several different types of charcoal and this, by far was my favorite! I like the way it glides on the paper and I wasn't covered in charcoal when I was done! I love that it's water soluble too!
These worked for me when nothing else did.
I came across these by accident. But they were perfect for what I needed as a muralist

Smooth and versatile
from Fincastle, VA
Love my graphite to play loosely and then paint over and be surprised with what happens.

The darkest graphite that goes on smoothly
from New York
I have tried many types of graphite in different levels of softness, and Lyra is my brand. The watersolube is perfect for making super rich and textured marks. With other brands each graphite stick behaves differently, yet Lyra is super consistent and even after a few years of sitting it maintains the same quality.Typically I apply many layers, pressing very hard and the results are incredible. Most think it looks like sumi ink.
from Salina, Ks
Wonderful for covering large areas that need a darker value.
from Joplin MO
Truly impressed with the versatility of this product. It lsys down so smooth and the brush picks it up off the stick fabulously. So much better than several of the high cost brands i have purchased previously at 10 times tbe cost. You cant go wrong here!
