I honestly had not used colored pencils since I drew maps or biology drawings in junior high school. Recently, I’ve been seeing random artworks done with them and I wanted to check them out. I was surprised. These pigments are wax- based and surprisingly blendable even though the leads are not soft at all. The pencils themselves are made with flat edges so they don’t roll off your table and are easy to grip. Plus carrying case, while nothing to write home about, is functional and keeps your pencils together.
Whenever I try any medium that is new or I haven’t used in a long time, I usually sketch or paint a cat head. So I did that with these.
If you’re interested in checking out a set of the US Art Supply 50 Piece Artist Grade Colored Pencil Set Bundle for yourself, they are affordable, lots of colors, and highly functional!
