  • Wonderful Bright Colours

    I bought a 36 pack of these pencils and, well, coloured pencils are generally similar in in the way they work on the paper. Some are soft, some are very soft and some are harder. They all have varying different characteristics.
    Polychromos pencils are different. Their differences are very obvious compared to other coloured pencils. (And here I have to disagree with Ken Bromley here,) Polychromos pencils are not wax based pencils, they are oil based pencils. This makes a large difference in the way they react on the paper. The main difference being that you don't get that waxy bloom/shine, your pictures always keeps a nice matt finish for as much pigment as you can get on the paper. That aside, Polychromos are very highly pigmented, the colours spring off the paper. A drawback (in my opinion), is that these pencils in the smaller packs, i.e.36, are not enough, you need the whole set (120) to use them well. The colours don't mix as well as wax based pencils, hence you can't layer colours so well, you need the nearest colour to what you want from the complete set. I'm ordering mine now, and I'm looking forward to using them.

  • Great Product

    I have never used pencils before, so this is very new to me. They feel very smooth to work with and I appreciate that I need a lot more practice to get the right feel for them. But they felt so nice I am encouraged that I shall produce some good, saleable work with them in future.
