Getting to know Sanguine and Sepia
Comments about Yarka Sanguine and Sepia Drawing Crayons:
Very nice material for dry drawing. I tried it for wet techniques but it didn't work. Will try again. I like the warm reddish shade of Sanguine. Dark Sepia is perfect for the contour. Some crayons were broken but it doesn't affect the usage. Nice product! Thank you!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This product has potential.
The product came in a nice wooden box with foam padding. However, every stick was broken, some multiple times. It's hard to draw or sketch with a broken nub.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

not the same
from new york
these Yarka crayons are not the same as the ones with Podolsk Art Centre on the box. both are imported by Jack Richeson, but the newer ones are not water soluble, and cannot be made into a thick paste, create a textured clay surface, or 'bleed' using a brush. it was these qualities that made Yarka crayons such an amazingly great versatile product, but no more. fine as a dry crayon but limited solely to that.

Great for figure drawing class
from Ferndale, MI
These have worked very well for my high school figure drawing class. I have students start with these crayons, as they don't allow for a ton of detail (which is what I want when they are first starting out!). Also, they are great for blending-- really easy and fast for me to help students with their shading. They are a bit messy, but not as bad as charcoal. Eventually we move on to Conté Crayons which allow more detail, but this is a great place to start. Plus, they come in a nice wooden box! Good price, too.
Takes some getting used to but...
By Ange G.
from Oshkosh, WI
These took a little getting used to. They are messy and unforgiving if you are not exact. But, they are smooth as butter to use. Once you get used to them the results are worth the effort! I'm addicted.
