Customer Reviews

One of my 3 favorite sets. Beautiful vivid colors, waxier than Prismacolors but neither better nor worse, I use both in different ways. These "behave" differently than many other colored pencils, they go on very smooth, but also burnish faster than other pencils if you have a heavy hand. Lighter hand and layering gives me best results. Need sharpening more often if you need a fine point.. I save these for special pictures I may want to keep, and do general coloring with inexpensive pencils from the big box store. 5Prismacolors fan... I've been a fan of premier prismacolors my whole life so I decided to try these colored pencil based on all the good reviews I read. Based on my experience with prismas first thing I noticed was the huge difference in the lead softness.Pros: they don't break easily when you sharpen them... actually, they don't break at all.Polychromes are a tiny bit thicker and also a tiny bit more heavy, you almost can't feel the difference. So far I have liked the polychromes better on that side, they feel more sturdy.Pigmentation is as good as the prismas.The pointy lead lasts longer than the prismas.Cons: They leave a residue on the painting, you don't want to be rubbing the side of your hand on the paper, it will be transfered into your hand.I love the smell on the primas, you know the wood odor (I simply like it so much) Well, the polychromes don't have it.I'll keep leaving prismas at the top followed by the polychromes. :) 4Love the quality of these pencils Love the quality of these pencils! The only drawback of this set is that it comes with four shades of blue, three of which are purplish in nature but not actually purple. I would have liked at least one true purple to round out the rainbow. 4I believe the Faber-Castell Polychromos have a richer pigment and blend better than the Prismacolor and there is no need for ... After enjoying Prismacolor pencils, but putting up with the broken leads and wax bloom, I tried these new pencils and I'm loving them! I believe the Faber-Castell Polychromos have a richer pigment and blend better than the Prismacolor and there is no need for the gumso or mineral spirits. These vibrant pencils are break resistant, waterproof, non-smudge and match the company's other color lines. The pencils have a creamy texture and the color saturation is wonderful. They are easy to use, blend well and even erase. They are excellent for coloring, very smooth and accurate. I love the ability to mix color and create my own shades. I have also used my Prismacolor pencils for a color I don't have in the Polychromos. Prismacolor pencils are wax based and Polychromos are oil based. 5Keep your expectations at "normal" and you'll be happy I tried four different types of colored pencils before ordering these. But I kept hearing how great they are, so I had to try a small set.First, if you are coming from Prismacolor Premier pencils, these are superior. No doubt about it.But if, like me, you're coming from other oil-based sets, like those made in the Koh-I-Noor factory in the Czech Republic, you may wonder what the big deal is.From what I can tell, a key difference between these and Koh-I-Noor, Blick, and Utrecht colored pencils is the color variety. The first three really don't offer the difference in colors that you can get here, and even let many similar colors into their collections. This is disappointing. So I was pleased to hear that the Polychromos line has a nice color spread.Another difference is in the lightfastness. But if lightfastness is really that important to you, have a look at other expensive products too, because superior lightfastness can be achieved. To me, lightfastness is of practically zero importance until I have a paying project or family project that expects longevity. At that time I will just go out and buy the most lightfast set that fits my need, and the price premium will be already taken care of in my estimate or in my overall project considerations.Another thing to mention is the fit and finish. These are really nice-looking, nice-feeling pencils.The case has actually been pretty annoying to me. Why would I want it to open up vertically, on a hinge? The hinged lid finds a way to make itself unwanted pretty fast, because there's usually something in its way. Ditch the case and use another method of transporting these. I use a Nite Ize Gear Tie.Finally, this particular 24-color set contains a strange assortment of colors. No purple, excessive reds, and warm blue hues that I wouldn't have picked. The purple, not a big deal--blend it up. The blue hues though, well that's actually pretty annoying. I can't just blend up a nice light cool blue. But when I'm ready to dish out another $35 or so for some open-stock additions, this should make a nice set. I thought about buying a larger set, but a) some colors I want only come in the very large sets, and b) I don't like very large sets right now because I don't want to lug them around all the time, between home and office, home and vacation, etc. Also I like trying different types of pencils and find variety more fun.If you are really budget-conscious, and are not really an experienced colored pencil artist, and are wondering if the actual experience of using these is worth it vs. the generic Czech pencils like Blick or Koh-I-Noor or Utrecht (now owned by Blick) offers, I really suggest that you start out with a small set of these Polychromos or just order a large set of the Czech stuff first.If your expectations are that these will blow your mind and that you'll be in love from the moment they touch paper, prepare for some potential disappointment. They are just colored pencils, and while the Polychromos name does have that cool cachet, it's really got to match your personal circumstances and needs to be worth it.I'm including a small drawing...that could be done with just about any colored pencil set on the market. :-) But still, these are nice pencils, and you might like them. 4The Rolls Royce of Artist Mediums These colored pencils are AMAZING! I am starting to get into light sketching and working on coloring abilities and I have also gotten into adult coloring books. I did a ton of research on some of the best colored pencils I can use. I needed them to be able to be easily blended and I needed decent pigmentation without having to press too hard to get the effect I needed. I sometimes get cramps in my hands when using the cheaper brands, depending on how hard it is to get the color to lay down. Throughout my research I was told by many to get Prisma Color. I was set to grab those until I found out that there are many issues with the quality control and that the pencil lead, if not centered, can cause a lot of breaking issues. The real issue is that now it's a toss up of if you're going to get a useful set or a set that you ultimately can't use. Therefore I came to Faber Castel Polychromous because that was the second name I heard the most. These pencils can be very expensive, I have found. Due to this I chose to get the 24 count collection to make sure that these are worth purchasing. Now I wish I had gone the next collection up because I am in love with these pencils. They are super smooth to color with and the good part is the pencils don't ware down too quickly meaning you will be getting some good use out of the pencils. The blending was off the hook, I don't think I have ever owned a set of pencils that was so fluid in blending. The colors are nicely pigmented and I'm shocked at the ability to use little to no pressure and I was still able to get a lot of color on the page. The biggest coup for this pencil company is that these are oil-based. I had no blooming whatsoever while I was layering, and I do a lot of layers. This is amazing because the more layers you have the more intense your artwork will look. Now that I have 24 pencils I am going to add to this collection a little at a time. There are other companies that sell these pencils separately for under two dollars a piece so eventually I will have a complete collection. I definitely recommend this brand from Amazon as this was the cheapest I found them. You won't be sorry! 5I love my polychromos! I love these Faber-Castell polychromos, I have many different kinds of colored pencils and these are by far the best ones I own. They are so smooth and spread across a piece of paper like butter. They color so well and it's so much easier to use when you only have to use light pressure to get a beautiful color. The colors are vibrant and bright, and they sharpen very well to a nice point without breaking the tip. I have no complaints about these pencils, they are amazing. 5Worth every penny! These are the best pencils I have ever used in my entire life! Since I ordered these, I have slowly been adding more colors to my collection and now have 60 pencils. They are such a high quality pencil that I can't use anything else. The colors are rich and vibrant, they lay down easily, blend beautifully, and are worth every single penny I spend on them! I tried a few Prismacolor Premiere pencils and found I don't care for them at all. They are soft and creamy, but because I tend to be a bit heavy-handed in my coloring, I find that I prefer the Polychromos. The core is very sturdy and I can keep a nice sharp point for quite a long time, despite pressing hard at times. 5Odd Range of Colors I want to state that I had a good experience with the seller; this review is concerned solely with the product. They are nice pencils, but I am not happy with the range of colors. I've noticed that the colors in my tin do not match up exactly with the colors listed, so I am providing a list of what I received:Black, White, Warm Grey II, Warm Grey V, Light Ultramarine, Dark Ultramarine, "Helio" Blue, Phthalo Blue, Dark Phthalo Green, Emerald Green, Light Green, Earth Green Yellowish, Cadmium Yellow, Orange, Pale Geranium Lake, Deep Scarlet Red, Dark Red, Magenta, Walnut Brown, Burnt Ochre, Chrome Yellow, Light Yellow Glaze.It is a small set; considering this I question the inclusion of Raw Umber, Burnt Ochre, Light Yellow Glaze, and Chrome Yellow. There is not one purple pencil in this set! The closest thing to purple is the Magenta, and the color I see on the page does not match *my* idea of magenta. (The value isn't right - too dark.) And nothing even close to pink is included.I would have appreciated a better range of blues, purples, and reds. I find the range of four blues in this set to be quite odd. As for the reds, the Pale Geranium Lake is *not* pale, and the Dark Red is nearly brown in appearance. Also, no Venetian Red was included in my set of pencils.Okay, I'm not a professional artist - I just do what I do. Maybe "what I do" will evolve and I will find colors like Light Yellow Glaze more useful in the future. (It's possible, I suppose!) Anyway, I've just ordered a set of 48 pencils made by Bruynzeel, so I'm looking forward to playing with those. I hope that I'll be able to use the Polychromos pencils in combination with my new ones. 3Wonderful, nice and smooth colors!! When I first ordered my set of polychromous colored pencils I was skeptical. I've used prismacolors for several years and didn't know what to expect. I heard some good reviews and decided to try them. When they arrived a day early I immediately put them to use. The finished product was astounding. I found that unlike prisma, I was able to keep layering the colors without end. There are only a few things I had to adjust to use them properly.1) The way you lay your foundation colors; leave all your highlighted areas untouched as the pencils are translucent and the lighter shades do not layer over darker ones well.2) Being oil based they feel different when applying the pigment and while they do burnish, they do better with paint thinner, so I've heard, and will try soon. All in all I am very pleased with my new set and can truly say that I'm hooked even with the slight variance in their usage and I am already planning to obtain another larger set in the near future. 5
