Wonderful Colored Pencils

I haven't spent enough time using them to properly compare them to my Prismacolors but they lay down smoothly and richly. I bought four of the maximum lightfast pencils (three stars) during the buy 2 get 2 sale: Dark Indigo, Cobalt Green, Pompeian Red, and Beige Red. I wanted to try them out first and if I liked them, not have duplicates within one of the smaller sets. I've enjoyed them so far! :)

I doodled this cute little rat. She's outlined in Indigo which was also used in the darker hearts and on her nose and whiskers. Her fur is Pompeian Red and her paws, tail, and inner ears are all Beige Red. Her irises and the gradient in the heart is Cobalt Green. (The two reddish hearts are other products and the highlights were all added/enhanced with Yono White or Montana White Acrylic Markers.)

Polychromos colored pencils

I love my Polychromos pencils! They lay down so nicely on the paper. I recently found coloring as a hobby, and these have such brilliant pigments in them! Thanks for making them accessible to us.

GREAT texture

These are the best colored pencils I have - they've got a soft, buttery texture and the pigment is really concentrated and vivid. I also don't have breakage problems with these like I do some other art pencils. These are a step up in quality from the Goldfaber line (though I don't want to put those down, because they are also really good!) - they also have thicker cores than Goldfaber or Prismacolor.
Super pleased with the quality.

Upgrade from Faber-Castell Goldfaber Pencils

I have a set of Faber-Castell Goldfaber pencils and I enjoy using them, but when I saw that ArtSnacks was having a buy 2, get 2 free Polychromos sale I decided to try them out. They are a definite step up from the Goldfabers in quality. Plus, since the Faber-Castell colors are the same across a variety of products, you can easily supplement a set of Goldfabers by buying the colors you do not have in that line. You can't beat that!
