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
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.
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.
