lovely big blocks that inspired me to use for lifedrawing and to go 'bigger' than I would usually. Trudi Atherton (Southport, United Kingdom) on 28 Jun 2014
Bought these with high expectations but found them very soft and difficult to work with. Perhaps once i get used to them I will see the benefits. But glad I bought them when on special offer. Jane Mcardle (Kendal, United Kingdom) on 13 Jul 2013
These looked an interesting combination of colours and I thought they would inspire use just through that - I'm always looking for things of that kind. Deborah Morton (Worcester, United Kingdom) on 6 Jan 2015
