This is the set of 72 pencils. 70 of them are colored and 2 of them are blenders. They come pre-sharpened and everyone of them arrived in perfect condition. They sit on two trays and the top tray is easy to pull up because it has two paper handles. They are stored in a silver tin that feels pretty sturdy.


Aren’t they beautiful! Each pencil has it own number and is named. I love that! It makes using them so much easier when you want to blend them.


The back of the paper case cover has a color chart on that shows the color, number and name of each pencil. Very helpful!


I gave them a try in my new Inspire Proverbs Coloring Bible. I decided to use the Gamsol blending technique to see how well they blend.


I am so impressed!! Comfortable to hold, they are easy to color with and they blend perfectly! These are some of the best oil based pencils that I have worked with so far.


Here are the supplies I used:

    Colouring is something I get so into when doing it with my Little Man I often wonder if I should actually do some for myself. I just wish I had the time! These look lovely. #TwinklyTuesday
