Welcome to dickblick
Made in England, these high-quality pencils were designed specifically for the professional artist and designer. If you like the texture and blendability of Derwent Artists Pencils, but prefer a crisper, more precise drawing style, Derwent Studio Colored Pencils are for you!
All 72 pencils in the range are highly pigmented for maximum color purity. They share the same color core as Derwent Artists Colored Pencils, but have a slim, hexagonal barrel that's easy to grip. The 3.4 mm core sharpens to a fine point, producing a narrow color strip that's particularly well suited to detailed illustration work, such as botanical studies, architectural drawing, and graphic design.
Each hexagonal wooden pencil is strikingly finished in matte black with a color-coded end. Pencils are pre-sharpened. Studio sets are packaged in a handy hinge-lid tin box.

So glad I decided to try these.

Comments about Derwent Studio Colored Pencils:
I don't care for colored pencils. This brand was suggested in an article I read by Artist John Howe. I decided to try them and was very surprised by the color tones. this is now my primary medium for sketching my ideas. Love them and wish I had bought the bigger set.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everyone should own these colored pencils!
By Just the average Tracey
from Oscoda, MI
These colored pencils move in awesome strokes, I just love how the col out rs work together and highlight each other. These are a must when having any type of colored pencils.
Best color pencils, ever.
By G. Orilla Art
from Florida, USA
For detail, these pencils beat all others I have used. I was so happy to have found them. Fine line work is a chore with other pencils, with these, just perfect. My art work has been upgraded significantly by the use of these wonderful color pencils. I will be buying more, for sure.
Would buy only for a unique color, or 2
from Louisville, KY
I really expected the Derwent Studio line to be a much better pencil. The line has some very pretty colors, but the hard wax of the pencil is a turn-off. It does not go down smooth, like say, even the Blick Studio Artists brand pencil. So, for the higher cost of the Derwent Studio pencil that does not match its performance, I would opt to buy another higher grade pencil for the money and only buy an occasional Derwent Studio pencil for some different colors.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these pencils were not as you expected. These pencils are indeed harder — their fine point and ability to make crisp lines make them a useful accompaniment to softer pencils. Please know that if you'd ever like more information on the working characteristics of a new medium, our Product Information Team is here to help. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they're happy to advise!
Chinese White is an excellent white!
from McKinney, TX
I use Chinese White for coverage that needs complete white tones without any underneath colors bleeding through. Whether I am using it over other colors or to bring out highlights on dark backgrounds, it has a remarkable clarity!

not very metallic
from fredericksburg, va
I was very disappointed because I thought the pencils would produce a much more metallic look. They are also very soft and the points break easily.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these pencils are not to your liking, and we'd like to help. Just give us a call at 1-800-723-2787 to speak to a Customer Care Agent.
Best Colored pencils on the market
By Another artist named Pollock
I have been using these pencils for years.. They blend well, (just apply light to dark..)
A nice lead that is not too brittle and a bit creamy
By David Miles Illustration
from Kalamazoo, MI
I got these pencils on the recommendation of a friend. I wanted to do some sketching and experiment with some different media in the process. I really like the results I am getting with these pencils and I'm ordering a slightly different shade to continue my experimentation :). Moohaha!
a great addition to my hobby
from Southwestern Iowa
I really like the Prisma verithins and wishing they had more colors. As I was looking for some other brands that have similar qualities I came across these. Dewent Stuido pencils are delightful. Color saturation is grand and they hold their points rather well.very smooth delivery. I think I need the entire set

Derwent Blue Grey
I just bought a single blue grey pencil for shadows. The hue is really nice, perfect for coloring rocks and putting shadows even on faces and skin. But the pencil itself is pretty hard, I'd been warned about that with Studio pencils. I just didn't expect how hard it would be. It's still a solid pencil for the money. It does what I need it to do, so I'm happy!
