Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super pencils for blending Lovely to work with but the 12 pack is limited in colours. I am buying some separately so I get what I need. Great for details as take a good point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreamy These pencils are absolutely wonderful to work with, and i much prefer them to prismacolours as they’re less waxy. I’ve used faber-castell Pitt pastel pencil for a long time and certainly don’t regret buying theses pencils too! 10/10 would recommend:D

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but flawed The paper is good quality, it is sturdy, and good for the price, but the ring bind comes out sometimes when u open the pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polychromtastic These are the first designated artist colouring pencil that I have tried and I’m not disappointed. It’s gonna take some time to fully explore the versatility of these pencils, but the composition of the polychromo pencil is wonderful. They are comfortable, smooth and a pleasure to use. The colours are thick and intense, but also have the ability to deliver light, rapid strokes without the jarring, inconsistency found with average pencils. The waxy “lead” provides smooth and pleasing action that is a thousand miles away from the grainy scratch of lesser pencils. A perfect combination of versatility, control and consistency at a reasonable price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! These pencils are wonderful! They are very well pigmented; the colour adheres to the page with even the slightest pressure allowing them to be used on very thin surfaces. You can easily create thin or thick layers or colour and they are smudge proof and completely water resistant - definitely worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pencils especially for a quality finish I have been recommended to try these pencils by a few Artists and always like to experiment. I find that these are very nice to work with and have a vibrant colour with a professional and quality finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter pack I always wanted to purchase these pencils, I did my research before buying so I actually knew what to expect, but these actually exceeded my expectations. Like I explained once to someone what these pencils are: “these make you draw even if you can’t really draw” :) It’s a great pack to begin with and contains all the basic colours. You can then decide what other colours you actually need and buy them separately from hobbycraft. I’m very happy with the purchase and I’m going to build my collection of these pencils.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is very nice This product has a nice arrangement of coloured pencils. It would've been better if they added a grey or something
