WONDERFUL COLORS IN THIS SET. HOWEVER, SOME OF THE TIPS WERE BLUNTED PERHAPS BECAUSE OF PACKING. ALSO THE CASE WAS MUCH HEAVIER THAN I EXPECTED. I'M NOT SURE HOW THE HINGED SECTION WI LL WORK SINCE THE AREA TO PUT COLORS USED IS BEHIND IT. I HAD A SET OF 84 IN THE TINS WHICH WERE EASIER TO HANDLE. I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE THIS SET WHICH I USE TO COLOR FIRST AND THEN ADD WATER LATER. THIS CRAN D-ACHE BRAND IS SUPERIOR TO ANY OTHERS I HAVE TRIED AND YOUR PRICE WAS THE BEST I FOUND AFTER COMPARING OTHER SOURCES. I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE NOW SETS WITH 126 BUT HAVE NOT SEEN THEM ADVERTISED ANYWHERE.
Have used these 'crayons' for years.. still have some of the same ones for over 20 years. even if they break, you can still use them. difficult to describe since they are both dry and wet media. colors can go from opaque to transluscent with a wet brush.. YOU control the surface and effect. nearly impossible to 'overwork' since a damp sponge can be your eraser. these will bring out the artist in you... If you've been looking for a medium that can do it all, these are IT....
