Excellent leads. Dark consistant lines, great for shading.
By Jack the Artist
from McHenry, IL
Very happy with the leads, consistent and very good quality!
I am kind of unsure about this product. They don't work newsprint paper very well. The charcoal lead is gritty and not dark enough like other brands. The colored ones feel under-pigmented to me , they are smooth ( oil added) but hard to layer.Maybe newsprint is not the companion paper.After trying them out, I kinda feel discouraged to use them.I am thinking of a way I can use them up instead of just let them be in the drawer forever.Also, when I opened the tiny plastic box set, two of them were broken in half . It's not too terrible to me though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with these leads. A more substantial, toothier paper will give better results, and our Product Information Team is happy to discuss this further with you. We hope you'll give us a call at 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com.

Creatacolor 5.6mm leads
from New Jersey
Creatacolor 5.6mm leads are great!Work as expected,and a great value!Use them in my lead holder.
from Richfield, MN 55423
I only use the graphite and medium charcoal. They last a good long time and work well for large shading and sharpening for fine lines. They hold their point well if rotated during use. Only problem I have is that the 6b is only available on line.
When used with the lead holder, these are a terrific tool for precise line making.

Used with the holders (plastic or wood/metal) these graphite sticks are a delight. The differences in hardness/softness are consistent. Great for large or small work. I use these for teaching drawing to students of all abilities.

First time I've ever used a charcoal holder. Like it for reducing the mess, but then of course I smush it with my fingers so get messy anyway. Still am using it and enjoying.

Don't judge a book by its cover I would write them.
lead is OK
