I ordered this set of colored pencils for my son and me to use. Imagine my surprise when they arrived – they are Marco Raffine Fine Art Colored Pencils! I had been wanting to get a set because I have heard such great things about them.


I have Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. While they are better than most pencils I just have never been totally pleased with them. I had heard that these Marco Raffine colored pencils do such a good job that a lot of people are using them instead of the higher quality brands.


Now it is worth mentioning that I am not an artist. Just a crafter who LOVES to color.

These colored pencils are WONDERFUL! The go on so smoothly, I was honestly shocked. I didn’t have to do any blending to get the look I wanted to achieve. Honestly, I could go on and on about these fantastic pencils but you really have to feel and see for yourself how great they are. These are the colored pencils I will be using from now on when I am coloring in my special coloring books.

    Adult coloring books are so popular right now. When I was a kid I could never color inside the lines. Unfortunately I still have the problem as an adult! I think I should just stick to my TV shows to unwind. LOL! #ProductReviewParty

    Dani, you keep reminding me that I need to buy a coloring book. Coloring sure is a stress reliever. I went to a event over the weekend and it involved me coloring, and boy was it so relaxing, helped me to take my mind off things. #ProductReviewParty

    • Dani says:

      It is such a stress reliever! I color for about 30 minutes before bedtime every night and it has really helped me to relax and rest so much easier.
      I think it would help you with all the stress you are under. I bet your girls would love to color with you! 🙂
