Great set of pencils for adult coloring books!
on December 21, 2015
Very nice set of pencils, they color beautifully in adult coloring books, especially for very intricate coloring. However if coloring larger areas, they do take a lot more time to blend so start/stop lines are not visible, but it can be done. (I'd recommend using Primascolor pencils for coloring books with mermaids, fairies, ect...)
I tested them against Crayola, Prang, Rose Art, and Prismacolor Soft Core Pencils. They color so much smoother than the Crayola, Prang, and Rose Art. They definitely are not a replacement for Prismacolor pencils, they are still a step below them. The pencils sharpen very nicely just using the Prismacolor Scholar sharpener (it's the green one). Where as for my Prismas I have to use the black sharpener.
I have the 72 pencil set, about 20 of the colors are very close to each other, almost duplicates even. It could of easily been a 48-50 pencil set if they rearranged the colors included in the 48 pencil set they offer. I did purchase the metallic 12pk set as well which I'm waiting to be delivered. I found a color chart online, and modified it to included which pencils come in the different sets. I've included the pictures in my review.
