I have been wanting a set of 72 colored pencils and needless to say that I was thrilled when this set by by Platinum Art Supplies arrived. They arrived quickly and well packaged. Easy to open I was thrilled that none of the pencils were damaged during transit.

The storage tin is perfect for organizing and storing these pencils. They do a wonderful job keeping them safe. The pencils are stored on two plastic trays.

These pencils come presharpened which is the way I prefer them to be. Unfortunately they are not numbered or named which I think would have made using them easier to use when coloring. I do like that this set does not have any doubles. There are 72 individual colors for you to use!

I found these pencil easy to use and blend. Below is the picture I colored before I blended using Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits:

And below is after I blended:

How do I think the compare to Prismacolrs? Well I think these Premium Colored Pencils are a slight step down from them. I had a harder time blending them and when blended they don’t appear as smooth and clean as the Prismacolors.

That is not saying that these are not good quality colored pencils. They are much, much better than student colored pencils and I do think that they are worth the price. I like them and plan on using them often.

      I hope you find some time to color. I know for me the best time is at night before bed. It really helps to relax me after a stressful day.
