Rated 5 out of 5★ by BuggainOK Wonderful colored pencil set - Artist quality! A friend recommended these pencils to me, as a substitute for a very pricey name brand artist-quality colored pencil set. The name brand set has 72 pencils for $72.00!! I have a few of the expensive pencils for comparison. I cannot tell the difference between the expensive set and this wonderful bargain set. Except possibly these Cra-Z-Art pencils are a little more vibrant, which is a good thing. I bought 2 sets for myself and 1 for my grandchildren who are budding artists.I make handstamped and colored greeting cards and do other papercrafting projects with these. 04/17/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by SoftD Best on the Market shor of Prisma Colors I really didnt expect much out of any colored pencil I could buy at Walmart ~ I'm a professional artist and demand high quality. THESE pencils are AWESOME! Tons of colors that lay down smoothly and have a deep pigment. I'd still rather work with Prisma Color, but for a low cost option, THESE ARE THE BEST!The leads are somewhat fragile ~ as are most high quality pencils. I prefer to sharpen them with an electronic sharpener but even with a plastic hand held, they do just fine.Can't afford Prisma Color? BUY THESE! 10/09/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by mikki9689 Good enough for basic use. I bought these after reading another review on these being close to artist quality. I love working in pencil and sell my art online. Thinking wow if I could save some money, well alot of money that would be great. I too use a set of 72 of a artist quality brand for 12xs the price of these. So I gave them a shot. They have a nice color range...actually I liked it better than my more pricey brand. I am really excited at this point, I sharpen a few and begin drawing. Well I didn't have the results the other buyer here had. The color went down much lighter than my more pricey ones while using the same pressure, with my other pencils the color was much more rich. I had to push down much harder on these pencils to get a good color for my needs. They also seemed much more waxy than what I have and because I had to use so much pressure to get color comparable to my other pencils the art had more of a sheen to it from the wax build up which I didn't like.My point is if you are an artist and need a high quality pencil and color I cannot reccomend these, but these seem great for average use...projects for school, kids coloring books (probably have to lay on a hard surface for better pressure) and such, but for professional use and compared to the much more expensive professional brands these just didn't work for me.I give it 5 stars because it is what it says and compared to other student grade colored pencils these are just as good....they never claimed to be professional quality just wished they would have worked that well. 08/03/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by MsImpatience They are great colored pencils for the price. The colored pencils meet my expectations and exceeded them because of the cost. 05/10/2012
