Excellent quality pencil case - it's small, so keep that in mind - it won't
comfortably hold items that are longer than 6" (15cm), but I have three Kuretake
compact waterbrushes, a Kuru-toga pencil, travel scissors, a couple of erasers,
and containers of pencil leads in mine, and it's a perfect little travel case
for my most needed art supplies without being bulky. As with all the Neo Critz
cases, it folds down into a nice standing pencil cup so you can put it on your
desk or other flat surface and have easy access to the contents. And it's a
pretty pastel colour (the inside is yellow with pink dots). Good quality, and
nice and protective.
These are bright, vibrant colours (no shimmer, just bright!) that have an almost
paint-like look to them. They write smoothly (even for this lefty) but they do
take a bit to dry. My only complaint is that they don't come in a smaller point
size - the 1.0 line is very broad and puts down a lot of ink on the paper (which
adds to the dry time). If you're a lefty, write carefully and wait for it to dry
or you'll smear it all over the page.
I love the variety of colours in this set and the fact that you can actually
erase markers cleanly, but some of the colours are weirdly muted, especially the
black, brown, and violet. The green and blue are muted, too, but not as much.
It's also amusing that the lime is "soft green" and the light blue is "light
blue", because the lime is actually one of the brighter colours.
These erase well, but it's advisable to let the ink dry before trying to erase
-- because they are markers they wet the fibers of the paper more and therefore
too much rubbing with the eraser will make rough areas on your paper. But these
are minor quibbles when you look at the fact that these are erasable markers!
