Nice set!

These are very nicely muted, and you get a very moody set of colors from them - but not muddy!

I compared them to my set of Derwent Graphitint. With Cretacolor, you get darker colors and smoother blending - you get lighter and truer-to-name color from the Derwents (less graphite in the mix), so they are less moody, but they don't blend as well.

I got these in the Sept 2022 plus box. I'm still getting the hang of them and watercolors in general. They seem pretty versatile. It's hard to tell the difference in the graphite before adding water but much easier after that. The brown is more reddish, a rusty shade, and the red is as others have noted probably meant to be burgundy but strongly purple so if you don't think of the red as a red it's less disappointing. When turned into a wash they're extremely delicate muted pastels! The white is translucent and I'm not sure how to use it other than for mixing.

(Yes I know my painting is... something else. I did it fast, without any patience, and also messed around after it dried but I'm also not claiming to be a true artist lol. The picture doesn't do an justice to the super pale washes in the petal formation at the top right corner btw. The unicorn's outline is the brown pencil which I used for the ground, the water is the blue pencil, there was some teal in the hooves and green in the grass originally, and the horn is brown and white pencil. I forgot to use the red... no wait I added some lines to the hair along with the brown.)

Overall, fun and easy to use

I think my only sore point would be the red shade because it's not very red and it's kind of muddy. The rest of the colors are a exactly what I was expecting and wanting when I bought this set. They work great as watercolor pencils and they're great for shading. Just maybe get a red from Graphitint as a replacement

I really enjoy using the pencils, because they are smooth and break down completely when water is added.

Interesting concept!

Received these in my September 2022 box. And after learning what they were, I was super excited to try them out. You can use them as pencils and write directly where you want color, you can also use a wet brush and pull color from the pencil itself. I'm not crazy about the color labeled as "Red". Any way I used it, it was much more dark violet/purple. I would probably purchase other colors of this though!
