The pencils work very well...they are nice and smooth, don't crumble, and don't break when sharpened (like other pencils do.)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like these pencils, however, Prismacolor's Verithin I find is better. Overall nice pencils, though

I have used these colored pencils before and loved them so ordered extra. I also like how their high pigment levels really make my artwork pop!
I will purchase these color pencils again.
from Omaha, Nebraska
Like all other color pencils I have ever used I have trouble sharpening and keeping the lead from breaking.

great for detail
By color on oxford
from Columbia, MO
OK I bought a set on another website and then another in a store. Not from Dick Blick. But I am ordering a twenty four set. These are fantastic for detail....I am a color pencil hobbyist. These are a hybrid between a Derwent Studio and Karmina or SOHO. ALL these are really great pencils....but thee are a great value. These are artist quality for sure. Just sorry they only come in a twenty four set. But these are a must because they lay down color just like other expensive artist color pencils, but they don't break the budget. Add graphite on say, Strathmore's new paper called Drawing Heavyweight and there ya go....a good looking and fun art work. As a former Engish and Social Studies teacher(NOT art but I did teach)....I know success depends on having success. But good materials are a necessity. These pencils work and will help with the budget.
Color good, leads broken
from Woodburn, KY
The color and feel of these pencils is good, but the leads in about 4 or 5 of them were broken and crumbly. They could not be sharpened, the leads crumbled away!!! Since it only happened on a few of the pencils I think they were damaged in manufacture, storage or transit and could be ok, these were not.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
