Lovely feel, excellent color.
By Jack Attack
from Boston, MA
I have a lot of Prismacolor pencils (berol, sanford and premier) that I've worked with, but found their tenancy to get waxy rather annoying when building up layers. These pencils are much softer and dryer than the Prismacolors. I found this surprising considering they are oil based, but they produce lovely soft layers and transitions of color. I don't think I could replace my Prismas with these since they have a rather tough time getting really dark, but I could certainly see using them in tandem. If you were to use a mix, I would suggest putting the Polycolor *under* the Primsacolor - they don't like to work the other way around. They are rather pricey, but worth the splurge for a smaller range of values to play around with for soft backgrounds, transitions and the like.

As good as higher priced pencils
I use a number of different brands of color pencils, and the Lyras are my favorites. They are oil based, and they allow you to get smooth, even coverage without wearing your hand out with hard pressure. They layer well, and they will write on acrylic paint which wax based pencils don't do well. For the record, wax based pencils like Prismacolor Premiers have their place, and they are lovely pencils. But if your budget will allow only one kind, hen get the Lyras. You won't be disappointed.

I like these pencils.
from Medford, MA
Colors are bbeautiful. They glide on nicely. I will keep buying until I have them all.

I have the Rembrandt's as part of a larger collection including the CdA Luminance and the FC Polychromos. The three of them work well in harmony with each other. The Rembrandts, while being an oil based coloured pencil, like the Polychromos, are a little harder and work nicely for layering and building colour as well as for some final detail. If one hasn't the funds to purchase either of the more expensive products, these would be the pencil of choice. Additionally, their LightFast ratings are top notch!
exactly what i wanted
Very smooth rich colored pencils. Love all thee colors and the way they sharpen so nicely

I user Lyra Rembrandts for adult coloring books and I do a lot of shading and blending. These pencils are wonderful for those applications. They sharpen up great, and hold a point longer than some other softer pencils.

Great but not perfect
Polychromos are my pencils of choice but I occasionally purchase other oil based pencils to fill in any gaps in my collection. I ordered several Polycolors to try out and I had mixed results. Most of them were nice and creamy, a couple were a little scratcher. The colors I chose are all unique compared to the Polychromos line and blend nicely with the other Polys.My biggest complaint is probably the color cap on the end of each pencil. They aren't even close to what comes out on the page. The Sky Blue pencil is a very, very light blue. The color cap is a pretty dark blue. Either memorize your colors by their names or use swatch charts.Overall, I'm pleased with these. I'll probably try a few more in the future. The Polycolors aren't as consistent as the Polychromos but they play nicely and have some unique colors so they complement what I already have. I'd definitely stick with open stock over a full set though because the color ranges are so similar. #sweepstakes
