Absolutely in love with these pencils ! They are so vivid and the colours are beautiful and different! I bought all the sets and I am totally a fan now ! These pencils layer and blend like a dream, they are smooth and highly pigmented ! I have been a professional artist for many years and have to say I am very hard to please when it comes to my art supplies. I am more than happy with these pencils and will be highly recommending these to my students.
