They have several drawbacks, but in spite of that I think they are great pencils!
First about the cons:
- They are not 60 colours as advertised! There are 2 black and 2 white pencils, making 58 colours in total.
- The case is not so good. While it do stores pencils safely when closed, it is difficult to make it stand upright on the desk and it easily toppels (however, this may be just only my item's fault). Also when some pencils get shorter with use, it becomes difficult to get them out of the case.
- Colour selection lacks really dark green and really dark brown.
- Blending! These pencils blend like a dream! I am still learning how to blend and layer, but even with my lower-than-average skills I can get some good results. I feel like the pencils are doing half of my job for me! They are good with blender, of course, but in most cases I even don't have to use blender.
- They share the colour name with Prismacolor Premier pencils, so when I use up one colour of Scholar, I can replace it with individually bought Premier. Thus in a couple of years I hope to have a set of Prisma Premier without any major investment.
- Nice overall quality, soft core, creamy laydown, vibrant colours.
Would definitely recommend these pencils for adult coloring!
Most important note: The company packages the "scholar" line of pencils cheaply so that they can offer them at a lower price to art students who typically cannot afford high quality art supplies.The scholar pencils are just as nice as the professional "artist" line, which comes in metal tins or wooden boxes.
Another note: "wood casing" in the description refers to the pencil itself. The pigment lead is "encased" in a wooden barrel. As you see by the picture, these are in a clear plastic case.
A set of 24 Prismas will usually cost at least $24-25 in the cardboard or tin cases. Larger sets in those fancy wooden boxes can cost hundreds. Here you have a set of 24 in a plastic envelope thing, and this has caused people to give poor reviews and return the items. You bought some of the best pencils around for half price, people- the packaging is irrelevant! I noticed that these reviewers mentioned nothing about the pencils themselves. Are you kidding?
I am an artist by profession, so I have plastic containers and drawers for all of my supplies. When I buy pencils they are going to go in the appropriate bin, so the packaging is not an issue- I prefer to pay for the contents. Other artists I know also store pencils in their own bins and boxes.
I have to replace my colored pencils fairly often since I use them to the nub, and buying 24 for $12-13 is certainly a great thing. If you have to replace a single pencil you will pay at least a dollar per pencil at most craft stores, so no doubt this is an economical alternative. Most likely, You will use up these standard colors first.
BTW- I see a picture of pencils in the plastic case up there for this item, so I don't know which product these other people are even looking at. Regardless, this set of 24 Prismacolor pencils is a steal. They are described as "student" quality, but do not let that fool you. These are not Crayolas by a long shot. I use them along with Prismacolor Artist pencils (the professional ones) and I really can't tell one from the other.
I just wanted to stick up for these amazing pencils since people have made the rating low for stupid reasons. Review the actual product- it is not helpful to others to complain about the case when most artists keep their supplies in other containers anyway.
Update: After using these for 2 weeks and having the majority of the pencils contain serious multiple lead fractures, I am wet frustrated. I ordered another brand of pencils, which do not seem to have these major issues. I highly recommend others do the same. Do not waste your money with these low quality nightmares.
