48 water colour pencils

Tactile Experience and Design:

The leads have a white protective coating that is supposed to increase break resistance.

It’s round barrel pencils, which usually means that it will roll off your desk often. It is not comfortable for prolonged use. The body of the pencils have a striped design which looks appealing. The box is two layered, making the 48 pencils pretty compact to carry.

Pressure:

They require some pressure to get the pigment on the paper.

Shade Fidelity:

The range of colours is pretty great. The pigment is brighter than most colour pencils.

Applying water to the pencils is not recommended as it is difficult to blend. The overall effect after drying is not satisfactory.

Papers:

High-quality paper
Ordinary paper

Pros:

  • Wide range of colours and shades.
  • Pretty good for the price.
  • Lasts long.
  • Pretty smooth.
  • Easily available in India.

Cons:

Although the pencils are meant to be break resistant, a couple of our pencils have cracked after falling off the table.
  • The water blending isn’t great.
  • Although it claims to be break-resistant, we have found them to not be so. If you drop the pencils, you can crack the lead.

Final Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Would we recommend it? Yes. We’ve had these pencils for over ten years and they still work great.
