Great layering and blending
from Morgantown, WV
Comments about Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Premium Oil-Based Colored Pencils:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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
Wonderful pencils but was missing a color in the 72 set
I have these as well as the Faber-Castell Polychromos and I enjoy using them both together. They're far more affordable than the Faber-Castells and yet similar, so I can use them up without breaking the bank. However, I was just making a color chart of the Lyra 72 set and I've got two Peacock Blue and no Light Cobalt--admittedly, that's a bit disappointing. Would like to get just the missing pencil without having to return the set. All the same, Lyra is a great deal, no matter the product, and I've recommended them to others.
they are perfect
from Front Royal
I am very happy my selection.
Really nice, but I prefer Fabre-Castell Polychromos
I purchased the complete set of Lyra Rembrandt colored pencils. As an artist that uses multiple brands of colored pencils, I can say that they are a quality product and a solid value. They are better than most artist grade colored pencils in that they sharpen nicely with minimal breakage, layer color beautifully, and work better with mixed media projects than wax based pencils. I do, however, prefer Fabre-Castell Polychromos because they offer the same benefits but are richer in color.
Not impressed with the wood casings
from Orion Spur, Milky Way Galaxy
Not impressed with the wood casings on these pencils. Sharpening a few manually with a KUM Magnesium Sharpener and they look pretty chewed up. One even split open half the length of the pencil doing routine manual sharpening. I never even had that happen with a Made in Mexico Prismacolor. Kind of disappointed because I really like the colors.

Wonderful Product At The Right Price!
from Anamosa, Iowa
I love my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolo Colored Pencils I'm learning how to draw caricatures and they make adding colors easy. What I like is how the colors compliment each other. Lyra is the only pencils that I've found that has light,medium, and dark flesh tones. I also like the fact that they are labeled with the Color on the pencil, since I'm color blind this is a tremendous help. I have found anything that's not good about the pencils. Great Product.
