This lead is amazing!...
Verified Purchase
This lead is amazing! As an art student it's fun to draw in color (if your teacher lets you). The different colors really help during an art block. And they do go fast! I used mine in two days. So if I were you I'd get a lot if you can!

These colors are perfect. I love to give my drawings a slight pop of color with out it being over powering. These do just that. As for the comments about the lead breaking: They are .5 mm they will break if they are pressed hard that is the nature of using thinner lead. The thinner the lead the more likely it will break. I have a very light hand when it comes to writing and drawing so I tend to use a .3 mm pencil but they don't make .3 mm colored lead (or I just haven't found it) so I must settle for .5 mm.

Love these! I use them for preliminary drawings and perspective drafts. They're great! I use the light blue for copying. Going over in ink and then photo copy and you can't see the blue. =)

These leads do break pretty easily, and wear down fast too (especially the orange). Not the best for extensive drawing, but might be nice just for small sketches or color-coded notes...

I love these colors, the only bad thing about it is that the lead snaps very easily, so you can't really pump out ANY more than you need to

I don't know what people are talking about with the lead breaking. If you don't abuse your lead it'll be nice to you simple as that. The mint blue is so nice to draw with it's my favorite color out of all of them and the lead is so soft and erase wonderfully if you don't carve into the page of course. Highly recommend.

It seems kind of pricy for only 12 leads... but they're alright I guess. I wish the colors were more primary and secondary rather than pastelish.

Nice colors, great for sketching quick stuff. The lead doesn't erase easily and it breaks easily, but they're really fun, cheap, and easy to sketch with.

Verified Purchase
The colors were nice, but the lead broke way to easily for my writing style. Not recommended for heavy-handed writers/artists.
