Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencil Review

This is Karia, again. And I have at long last My Polychromos Faber Castell video review. so let me open at the tin and show you what you get This is a tin of 60. So when it arrives
with a booklet that tells you different aspects of the company. There’s some techniques in here. There’s actually a mini color chart here, that you can actually
color and to match the colors if you want to. but this is your mini color
chart. That is in here. And in the back here – At the very top of the tin here gives you the history of the company. And all these various sorts of information. In the back there are the colors that are included. And I want you to take note of all these yellows. These are all the colors that are included in this very tin. So
if you say you are thinking about getting the tin of 60, you can look up the colors that
come in here and then buy some colors that DON’T come in the tin and that way you can try it out. That’s what I ended up doing. That’s how I tried it out. So here’s the tin.
One of the things I LOVE about this is that you can lift this up with one hand. Then you have all your pencils right here. And this really I found to be
extremely useful for just having everything in one place. And then I can
have my coloring books here and it’s super easy to work like in this way. So one of the first things that I did is I actually ended up taking out the yellows that were included in the tin originally. and I took out these yellows and I put in this
color put in there some other random one. I think this one I put into
headed in some ground and some greens just because we do a lot of nature you
know flowers and stuff and plants so I felt the need to augment what is
included with someone greens and then I keep the rest for me if you like you
know a lot of yellows you can end up doing that because you can get the
colors individually and that we have to be there some other things I want to
talk to you about namely we should talk about how they actually this is a review
I did last night of the spectrum nor the past just comparing the different pencils so
one of the things that you’re seeing right away across all of these is that
their fabric has stopped having promised 50 crystals number of different lines
there’s one that comes in a red box and blue box so you are so not all fiber
test cells are going to be the product harmless but this reviews about the
public harmless anyway what you’ll see is that you’re black and so are the best
blacks you know they’re your darkest black maybe the softcore might you know
might be similarly dark purples the blend ability is absolutely spectacular
across with this blending pencil and overall I found that for me I really
like the depth of color and intensity that I got from the fire but herself
without having to press as hard so for the Prisma color and for the corridors
and get these dark dark colors you have to press super super hard with the fire
has still not come as you don’t have to present hard to get the absolute darkest
color that you want you can even at Exit probably have done a darker black than
this the other thing you’ll see this tribal
cross here is the race ability so usually colored pencils and not every
single and in fact these are not truly completely erasable but being able to
erase a little little bit will help you with a certain techniques where you lay
down your PC or with you know making corrections and cleaning up your edges
so that’s another thing that have really liked about the public has promised the
other thing is if you compare that the same color palette and the same color
see that the the paula creamer which are here as this
one gives you the Richard darker color and it stays Richard overtime where the
Prisma color may begin to fade I ladies out in Sun so they may begin to fade
prismacolor and spectrum the water whereas with the polychrome most you
gonna have that color fastness that’s part of what you pay for so that’s the other thing to keep in
mind I didn’t raise a little bit of this sort of see if it could be a race that’s
part of why this is so thats entering the color death and in terms of the
usability I love using me as with Blender pencils this was done I think
with the prison color blaming themselves there are a number of different brands
you can also blend with white and don’t blend with what they feel like he gives
it lightens the color in a way that I don’t necessarily like Nicolo but the
blender pencil do not necessarily like the color so that’s what I used in this
half I used a blended pencil for this half a used in a blender pencil and you
can see all the white that’s here but when I use a blender really move around
so I found that to be really really awesome and really amazed at the fact
that I want to talk to you about some things about the polychrome the other
thing I really like I don’t know if you can see but most of the color still
almost all the way turnt up this is that I haven’t been sharp then I have been
using them I’ve been using these pretty almost exclusively for at least three
weeks that this had to be sharpened recently so you can see but the other
thing that I like about this is that unlike the president colors which you
have to I feel like you have to shop with the Prisma color every time you
need an online you end up having to sharpen with these they do seem to hold
that point for a while don’t need to be sharpened as often as
you can see that but this maintains maintains a sharp point for quite a
while this is a fairly often discover a lot so but you can see how much I use a
lot you can see how much as soon as a nice point so that’s one of the things I
really like about this even though the pencils are fairly expensive descent ran
me $100 for sixty colors and to get the whole hundred and twenty colors you’re
gonna be spending in the rain just $200 in most places over retail prices more
like 350 I still think that with these you do get a better value because with
my prismacolor you know some of the colors are here because you have to
sharpen literally every time using the other things I really like about the
color here’s all the way that color is all the way across the entire pencil
some brands of the caring dosh the Brant the colors on the very bottom the
spectrum noir the colors only at the very bottom with this you have the color
all the way since it may seem really easy to just out of class speaker the
other thing I like about even though it’s not super perfect color that you
get generally doesn’t good job of matching what’s painted on here so that
makes it really easy to just pick your color and the other thing is a light
color even your light colors still gonna give you a nice look like almost like
you can see that this is really gonna give you that color that’s on him and
you don’t have to press super high life with some of them when you get to these
like college and pursue I’m not even present particularly hard and I’m
getting pretty much the color they control is amazing each pencil is absolutely perfect as is
to be expected at this price range there’s no problems with any cancels
being pretty much I had been as I said extremely happy with be overkill for I
think that they’re perfect and that they’re not necessarily overkill I’m
sure you can find it this so I did my colouring still you
know what I did this with the hybrid hassles of this is all done with the
family has done I really just have been really loving the way back he gives you
a lot of rich color these are these are actually both fairly dark colors that I
just putting really lightly so you can actually get lighter tents that way to
get the darkest color analysis what you want so I’ve been doing that so that’s
pretty much it they come in sets and it tells you 100 let me tell you the exact sets that
they come they individually but they also come in sets of 12 24 36 6872 which
I have not seen any person actually carries a 72 set but there is a 72 sick
and then hundred and twenty six the murdoch-owned
books you can do 36 easy and get plenty of colors and
just the ones that you want extras the hundred and twenty might be overkill but
if you if you’re in the budget to spend $200 man it’s perfect so for most
coloring books I would say get very sick sore in the 60 if you can find the
seventy-two 72 might include some locals colors and I’ve been missing so that’s
something else to keep in mind and last but certainly not least is it so such a
minor issue that I was like I shouldn’t even mention this but I figure I’ll have
fun with this this color is called medium flesh I’m gonna say that that’s
not exactly accurate for everybody I did contact them and they do you mean flesh
as in skin rashes and meet so there’s that it is when it’s literally not be
under the world but I do find it funny this is something that americans
american companies don’t really do like really doesn’t do that other companies
in the USA doesn’t do that but this company is based out of Europe so I
guess that’s something that you know that’s something that they do not forget
that’s very minor not a big deal but ask for the console themselves they’re
beautiful they really do last a long time because you’re not going to be
sharpening every five minutes as you are with the Prisma colors to give you a
rich color there’s no they’re not like a lot of residue their traceable they do
you know they’re great for coloring books because they don’t you know you
don’t have to press super hard to not damaging the page behind it so that’s always good so
overall there’s really nothing but good things to say about this set if if this is within your budget them
and this is something that you were thinking about do you want this I have
the means to get the 3rd of 16 I think given set of 16 take up some of the
yellows and greens and blues you know and you’ll have your person
adult coloring book set all the other thing almost never imagined I took this
I traveled with this as you see here with no bubble wrap no nothing just the
way that these all the way from New York City to just somebody National Park just
insane to me come in and they did a great job of traveling as you can see
nothing was damaged everything survived the plane gets you some national park we
had to take on the plane airplane to San Francisco and San Francisco we took a
bus from the bus know we took the train first and then we
took a bus and that’s how we got to our hotel and then we did that back and
forth and it survived all of that without any damage without any problems
in saint in it comes with this is a very nice high quality traveled in so you can
take these with it is a little bit like longer on the side of a kind of life
because it means that you don’t have three sets to work with you don’t have a
three packs and needs to work with you just have to this is really nice for you
because up and will do so great pencil highly highly recommended literally can’t go wrong with these
pencils their color fast they have bonding and the pencil as I mentioned
earlier that have bonding all the way from top to bottom so you’re less likely
to get breaking just in the middle as you are with colors which are famous for
having breaking just a lonely little so overall no complaints totally totally I would highly recommend
it if you don’t have a set of charisma or you don’t have a set another brand
new your dog collar with the set of sixty is perfect I enjoy and have a
great day hope you like my review


  • missjoshemmett

    Very nicely done.  Understandable and you cover what a colorist really wants to know!  Thank you!

  • cre8tivity87

    I found this to be a very thorough review and because of this I will be purchasing this set.  I especially like that you mentioned how long the points last.  I have a few Prismacolors and they do produce nice coverage but I hate how they have to be sharpened after every other stroke.  So I will be looking forward to Amazon's delivery of my Farber Castell's  By the way I just subscribed.  Great channel.

  • Diana Martin

    Thank you. This is just the type of information I'm looking for 🙂

  • Izzy's Allotment Garden

    Great review. I love these pencils.
    I have been saving up for the 120 set. It might be overkill for colouring but who cares… There are no rules against it 🙂

  • ToCharon1978

    The 72 set is only avalable in a wodden case. (quite expensive)
    And about the "flesch"-color – I also finde it rather strange, I never could use it as a skin colour. I always mix mine.

  • Mim Devin

    Your reviews are getting better and better dear Karia 🙂

  • Charlene Gibson

    Great review! I'm convinced now, these are the pencils for me!!! What kind of sharpener do you recommend for them?

  • Linda Alcorn-Burg

    Great review, thanks.

  • Marcela Van Hefty

    Hi which additional colors would you recommend to get? I you just bought the set of 60 but I was debating to get 120 but maybe I should just add to the 60. Please let me know. Great video!! =)

  • Maureen Hayes

    I have Prismacolors, polychromos and luminance colored pencils. I agree that the polychromos are wonderful. Just wanting people to know that the polychromos are oil based and others are waxed based. Some people that will matter to, I haven't had an issue. I use the blender pencil, the white and also Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) to blend and you can mix these pencils with your Prismacolors if you already own them. This was a great and thorough review, thanks for sharing with all of us!

  • Virginia Oliveira

    Faber Castell's are always the best ones, no need for review!
    But thanks anyway.

  • Virginia Oliveira

    Just my half a cent: Because they are oil based, the won't be any wax bloom.
    You found a very good price for the bullet sharpner. I've heard they are great (read on books LOL). Thank you for your patience in doing reviews
    I got the 120, but that's just me, love all those colors, and I haven't a life either!
    Thank you. Just subscribed!

  • Patricia Page Mosaic Arts & Crafts

    Thank you dear! I just bought the tin with 30, I am very happy with them 🙂

  • Catherine Has Cake

    haha nothing is over kill if you enjoy it. Honestly, coloring isn't the same between crayola and Polychromos. If you want your picture to have all the details and gradients, you know crayola isn't going to be the same as your Polychromos.
    I find the flesh color kind of cute. In Taiwan a peachy flesh color is literally called skin color. Then my family moved to the West, and I got my first box of Crayola, I was like… I don't have skin color. But, I understand the whole reason for that when I grew up a little. Now, I call them my skin tone set. If I buy a set of colored pencil, and there isn't a full range of skin tone, I get upset.

  • dan dobrowolski

    I think the flesh color is that shade because they are made in germany, i think they have a differnt sensibility when it comes to race and skin color…obviously…lol…i just ordered the 120 set and im waiting for them to come in the mail. Even though i have the 36 set im still kind of excited about getting the 120…weird i know.

  • Caryn McGrenra

    I bought the set of 60, and I'm loving them! Do you have any suggestions for any singles to purchase to supplement the set?

  • Jessiiebabe1212

    Just wondering what the book is that you showed, with the girl on the front?

  • Jyy Yin Chuah

    wow loved your collection..still researching which set for my coloring books…….there is so many brands out there

  • luly lulyanka

    depending on the carandache pencils you get
    it can be colored to the very bottom

  • luly lulyanka

    please tell me the colors you used on your coloring book of the lady?
    I have a really difficult time finding good matching colors for darker skin

  • teresa jirapornmanee

    I just bought a 24 of polychromo , 24 of prismacolor and 2o of caran luminence( i ordered the 20 when i saw your review on the sunflower and yellow). I currently use marco raffines 72 ( polychromo marked) and colleen 60 regular and60 neon. You should try the raffines and colleens they are great and great value


    what are the best adult coloring books?

  • auntdj111

    Are all the different colors that you have listed in other comments that you bought separately included in the 120 set? And how much are they to buy separately? I saw the 120 on Amazon and the one they have ships from Japan, or a lot do-and is 240 or so? There is one listed for 198 but unclear as to quality. I'm wondering the best and most reliable place to get the 120 if I ever can (haven't even started coloring yet!) for the best price. Sorry for all the questions!

  • momicajack

    Nice review. I love my FCP's! As for the "flesh" tone, if you turn your hand over and look at your palm, that is the actual color of your flesh. The brown is simply the pigment in your skin. So, if you hold the medium flesh color against your palm, you will see the "flesh" tone is not really that far off. It is slightly darker, because it is "medium" flesh. The "dark" flesh pencil, is way off – it's more of a pink shade – but maybe it can be compared more to our lips. They have dark, medium, and light tones of the flesh color in the FCP colors, but don't seem to have one that is just labeled "flesh", so I guess the medium is supposed to represent the basic flesh tone. However, it is actually a bit dark for the natural flesh color, as you can see by placing it against your palm. 😉

  • Eve Mendes

    I have really been enjoying your pencil reviews. I have these pencils also. I do have the Caran d-ache and the old Berol Prismacolor. I have a question for you. Did the Number 139, Light Violet, come in any of your Polychromos sets? I can't find this pencil where I live so I had to order it from the UK. It is such a beautiful color and I wonder why it is not sold in Arizona. My local Dick Blick can not even order it.

  • Cindy Sparks

    Great review! I thoroughly enjoyed your video and have a better understanding of how great the polychromos will be – I've asked for a set of 60 for my b'day and will most likely receive them, my husband is great in blessing me with what I would like to have. I like that you can get individual pencils to add to the set. Thank you for a very informative review and I look forward to more.

  • Yvonne Mitchell

    Hay there Detroit Girl!!! You have a new fan and I am only sixty miles away. I'm up in Port Huron. I loved the explanation that you gave on the pencils. I caught it on another woman Fb page. But, was very happy to see it. I will now be following you in both places and hoping for a win in a drawing you may hold.
    I haven't gone into any of the top end pencils as of yet. I cannot decide between this brand and the Prisma brand. Plus, I am on a strict budget, since I am disabled. Art is just in my soul and I am in to many, many different styles. Everything from the coloring books to oils, acrylics, pastels, chalks, pencil & pen; as well as NA hand crafted jewelry.
    Have a Wonderful Sun Filled Sunday!! ( Not to shabby on the weather for here in Michigan, in November.) 😀

  • Julie M

    I use Talenti Gelato pint sized  ice cream containers for my colored pencils. I place coiled cotton wound in a spiral in the bottom of each container to steady the pencils and keep them from knocking into one another. My desk space is limited so it seems the best alternative to the tins for me. The only downside I have found is when the pencils get shorter I have to keep them around the outside of the container so I can find them. But the cotton helps them stay where I put them. I'm not so good at designing a palette for my coloring pages so I just pull colors at random to suit my tastes. I do want to learn more about palettes though. Cheers!

  • Silkspinner

    I agree about your comments about the 'flesh' colour pencil. Derwent coloursoft pencils another professional grade pencil made in the UK do a small tin of skin tone pencils that range from the lightest to darkest tones. They are not called flesh coloured but are the colours from their range which if used together should allow to you create the full range of skin tones. They included tones such as brown earth, dark terracotta, ochre, blush pink, pink and cream. You should be able to get these in the USA, but with all your Polychromos pencils, you probably have duplicates for these amongst them. I really enjoyed your review and the detail you put into it. I have both Polychromos pencils and the Derwent coloursoft and use them together. They are great pencils and well worth the money. Looking forward to your other reviews.

  • Andrea Motta

    Loved the review! I have a full set of 120 and 36, I have used FC pencils my whole life and can't imagine using anything else. As for the skin tones, well German made product, I cant imagine a black German. They all look extra white with pink suntan in the summer. I guess it is just one of those things.

  • bloobies espinoza

    What's that white stick from faber castell that allows you to blend?

  • tammynwes

    Just a hint: koh I noor isn't pronounced " core e nor". It is pronounced this way- koh (think of pronouncing similar to "coal" (without the l on the end, of course) ) i (pronounced "eye") noor (pronounced similar to the oo (similar to "ewe" in "pool" or "cool"–I originally said pronounced like "poor", but most people don't use the "double o" sound and pronounce it like "pore", so that obviously wouldn't do) or "nor". So, it's pronounced "coa" (coal without the L), "eye", "nor". Also, fAber castell isn't pronounced "fIber" castell, it is faber, think "favor"-did you somehow miss the "A" in faber? Your videos have a very strong possibility of being called good, helpful videos. But if the person doing the video says "I don't know, I can't pronounce this", but obviously never tries to find out exactly how to pronounce the word/brand, that person loses all credibility.

  • Tony Gruber

    Hi, I was just wondering if the oil based colored pencils can bleed through the pages in an adult coloring book the way a colored marker would? Thanks Tony

  • Thomas Myers

    Excellent review and very well done. You have helped me not only select the Faber-Castell pencils but the set of 60. Thanks for the information and enjoyed your presentation.

  • Ellen Beckett

    Great video! I enjoy learning from you. I just ordered the 36 pencil set of FC pencils & the Goddesses coloring book by Marty Noble. Which color(s) of pencils would you suggest I use for the Egyptian and African goddesses? If the 36 piece set does not have the colors, I could probably find them in open stock.

  • KaBluey59

    Hi Karia, Just letting you know that if you are buying 48 or more pencils then Jerry's Artarama has a great deal on them for $1.43 each (it's their "bulk" discount). I started my collection of Polychromos and Albrect Durer (watercolor pencils) with the 24 tin sets to "just try them out". Whoops, now I've got all 120 of each. At a $1.43 each this is cheaper than even buying the sets (alas without the tins, but I use pencil cases so no biggie). Just letting you and your subscribers know. Happy coloring (and painting). 🙂

  • 5898MJ

    Hi Karia! First, let me say how much I love your videos. I am just getting into coloring as an adult and have watched a ton of youtube videos. By far, yours are the most informative and fun. Second, I am looking to buy a good quality set of pencils. I initially bought an expensive set of Heritage pencils from Amazon but realized after doing some research that there is a real difference between quality of pencils. I have really like the idea of the soft Prismacolor pencils for their creamy, blendable properties. However, I have heard and read a lot about the breaking issues with Prismacolor pencils and that the quality has declined in recent years. You make the Polychromos look awesome but I am a little concerned about the hardness factor with these and whether they go on as smoothly and blend as well as the Prismacolor. After using both for a time, would you still recommend Polychromos over the Prismas? Thanks!!!!!!

  • Free Spirit *Erica*

    I love polychromos! I recently purchased a set from Amazon and they color so smooth and vibrant. Unfortunately I was only able to afford the 24 set but I am now saving up for the 60, maybe 120. I am using these primarily for adult coloring books but I am starting to get into light drawing as well. I love your channel, keep up the amazing work!

  • Roxanne Duty

    mine are coming this week, so excited!!

  • Nana Wren

    I do like your review:) Just bought a set for my daughter, it's her dream to own a set. So hopefully a surprise when she comes to visit. Next I shall buy mine…

  • weeblez72

    where have you been able to find them…

  • Yvette Williams

    I bought Some Prisma Pencils and I have to say that the leads pop a lot and I get wax blue bloom when layering! I called Faber Castell and had them to send me some samples of their pencils. The salesperson was happy to do it. Can't wait to get them. Can u do a video on coloring skin tones. What u did with her skin tone is nice!

  • Yvette Williams

    Try looking at Michaels or Hobby Lobby and use the 40-50 percent off coupons.

  • jenny154

    I just bought the 36 set I am so exited to play with them! Thank you for sharing this was very helpfull

  • Colouring for GrownUps

    Hello Karia – and thank you again. You have definitely helped me make up my mind. I started with the Scholar Prisma – I've had fun with them – but I struggle with the waxiness. I will tried to search out the "best" buy. One thing I would appreciate after seeing you removed several of the colours and replaced them with colours you prefer – I would really appreciate details on what you pulled out and what singles you purchased to round out the box of 60. Many thanks for your time.

  • Colouring for GrownUps

    Many thanks! I have made a note. Dare I ask what you ended up paying for your 60? I can't recall now if you mentioned it on the video.

  • daisy3690

    excellent video. I enjoyed this very much. Thank you for sharing. Be well

  • Stephen Kropf

    I'm a stamper and card maker…would you suggest I get the 60 or 120? I have a large set of Prismacolor but I find I don't use or need all the colours. Do you feel the 60 set has a well enough rounded pallet or should I just get the 120?

  • Laura Georgina Botanical Artist

    Hi there from the UK , just found your fab channel. I've just brought a few polychromos this week can't wait to try them out loved your review,can't wait to watch some more of your demos. x

  • MissRuthless

    Can you please possibly list which pencil colors you added that weren't originally included when you purchased this set? Thx in advance 😊

  • Sybil J. Chialiva

    Thanks for your very comprehensive review, Dear Lady. My set of 60 will be here Wednesday! 🙂

  • Tockets

    Love the video, found you very easy to listen to and you seem honest about the positives and the negatives. Also been enjoying your walk through of different coloring books.

  • Linda k

    Thank you for the review. I am new at coloring but I made my mind up to buy this set. I am glad you turned the volume up a little:). I am older and probably losing my hearing lol. I only have the secret garden book and I am unsure what else to buy. Again thank you. You are easy to listen to.

  • Mumford Fan

    Karia, can you share which green pencils you use the most often?

  • jen k

    why on earth would you use such expensive pencils on an adult coloring book? Good lord.

  • Shroom health

    I am new at this. I am a card maker. Everyone is using the Copic markers. I can't use them. The alcohol smell makes me sick. I will be getting some of these markers. Thank you. I saved your YouTube. I will be watching you. I also marked you as favorite

  • Haline S. De Camargo

    Thank you so much for this amazing review! 😀

  • Ei Wai

    Hello karia , I love your reviews. I watched your prismacolor review as well as I am considering to buy which. What do you think about the marco Renoir Color pencils? I have marco Renoir but I like to have larger set. I am not an artist. Just a colouring addict 😉

  • SusanScrapPassion

    I purchased this set for nearly $100 and was disappointed in the hardness of the lead. They did not have that creamy feel like Prismacolor pencils do and felt scratchy on the paper.

  • Eve Bolt - Bolt's Vault

    "Skin" color pencils were always a dumb way to name those, seriously. These pencils are awesome, I've been getting a few here and there from open stock and I love them a lot.

  • Sandy D'Onofrio

    Thank you so much for this in depth and honest review. Very well done. They've been added to my Christmas list. Happy Holidays!

  • jen perron

    Great video! Thank you. Answered so many questions 💘 Without knowing what else to call them, does the 60 pack come with 'flesh' colored pencils? Or are they something you got individually? I am lacking any real craft stores in my area so need to order everything online. Thanks again

  • GummyTumor

    Oh, no. You've just convinced me to splurge and get me this set of pencils. I've been on the fence about getting these pencils for years, but I'm gonna go ahead and just order them already. I really do like Prismacolors, but they're such a pain when you're trying to add fine details to drawings. Thank you for the review!

  • Vanessa Parington

    Thanks a lot for this video! 🙂
    What do you think is the best blender pencil for the polychromos? Cause I am kind of scared to use the paint solvents so I am looking for the best blender pencil available!

  • Joanna Pocock

    Omg look what you just made me do ………….Order the 120 set, a bag to put them in, two pencil rubbers and a faber castell sharpener !! £147 now how to hide them from my hubby lol

  • Rosa Valdes

    I'm expecting my set of 120 next week; I own lots of Prisma, scholars Prisma, Derwent a few only and KOH; and 12 FC poly and my favorites; that's why I order my set 120 for 157 dollars🤗👍🏻love your videos too

  • Kevin Schaaps

    Thank you for making this review! It helped me decide that this is type of pencils I want to give to my wife as a gift.

    One thing I was wondering though. it is about the medium flesh part of the video. What is the issue? I am from the Netherlands, so perhaps I'm too European to get the meaning of your words.

  • Anne Landkildehus

    You say Fiber-Castell instead of Faber-Castell

  • Sanem

    I just ordered the same set and was looking for a review .. I know kinda wrong order 🤦‍♀️ . And I’m so thankful for this helpful review and informations. I hope I don’t get disappointed 🤷‍♀️

  • artchic528

    OMG!! I bought the tin of 120 for coloring and maybe some drawing on the side. Overkill? Maybe. However, it's nice to treat yourself every once in a while to something really nice. XD

    I have the full 120 set of the poly fc. I found them on amazon for $155. I also have the Prismacolor full set and the Derwent full set.

    Great review! I have recently had the urge to try colored pencils again. I got a set for Christmas in high school, but since I have to sharpen them every 10 seconds and the lead constantly breaks, I remember why they turned me off.

    Your reviews helped me make an informed choice on a new set! Thanks! 😃

    I know I know… I'm being anal… but for the love of all that is holy it's not FIBER Castel. It's FABER Castel. Good review except for that. 😀
