Comments about Caran d'Ache Museum Aquarelle Pencil Sets:
The selection of colors for the 12 set was useful since I already had 3 prior colors not in the set. I tried them out to draw scenes for tube watercolors so the lines will dissolve rather than show like ink. This brand is lovely and they were about $3 each instead of over $4 each as usual. You get what you pay for in art supplies. Quality pencils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the quality and colors of the set.
from Princeton NJ
The pencils are wonderful. I received an email that it shipped on Aug. 31st and didn't get it until Sept 17th, I thought it odd that it took so long to get here.

While I have not used every waterpencil on the market, I do have a few derwents from forever ago. These pencils far surpass in the area of dissolving right into paint without the pesky left over pencil marks that other water pencil and canyons leave behind. The pencils feel nice in the hand and feel high quality. I only gave them a " solid value" rating as they are pricier than the competition but are so worth it!

O.M.G. Deliciousness in a pencil!!
These are the best art supply I've tried in a long time. I love them SO MUCH. They are deliciously creamy and lay down rich vibrant colors. The addition of water makes the color just explode. These don't disappoint, and they have excellent lightfast ratings. I ordered the landscape set.

Excellent product. Will add more to the set.

I use this to draw before oil painting and also during the painting process to correct lines. Moves with water, stays put with paint or mediums.

Reliable lightfastness, soft cores that melt with water. So smooth on paper. Sure wish the largest 72 color set would have been available. I wonder what colors I am missing despite purchasing the 3 available sets.
I would buy again
very happy with quality, would like t be able to order complete set
Beautiful Colors & Quality Watercolor Pencils
The colors are beautiful, vibrant, and blend so easily. The pigments are perfectly centered in their wood casings, It's understandable why their price is so high. I'm not sure if I'll be adding additional colors, because the three Caran D'ache sets have a nice range of colors. I love my Faber Castell Dewers watercolor pencils, so between the two brands I think I'm set. I may order Caran-D'ache individual pencils when I need to restock a Faber Castell pencil, if there's a similar color. Bottom line, you won't be disappointed with these beautiful pencils!
Lightfast, vibrant and easy to use
from Duluth, MN
I use these and a waterbrush when sketching out of my studio. It takes a bit of practice, but once you experiment enough you can mix the colors directly on the paper and blend them together with a brush. No pans, no tubes, no palet, just some pencils a waterbrush and a sketchbook.I wish they had more blues, but such is the price of lightfastness.
