We always prefer to view more high-value cores arrive at the market as they offer up a unique experience for your consumer. This watercolor-like colored pencil set includes a thick 4mm lead plus a hexagonal casing.

Visible Attraction

The color output this is very nice and ought to rival many other premium collections. The petroleum center actually shines, making relatively thick and also a somewhat creamy color which could be mixed into an extent even ironic. Where it shines is with the addition of a few drops of waters.

Really smooth and consistent color is potential that makes these watercolor pens good for skyscapes, buildings, or even for skin that is smooth. In terms of color choice, we recommend trying to go with a few of the larger collections like the 72 bit as the color assortment is quite nice and makes this collection flexible enough for nearly any setting.

Our only criticism is that the color output was not always well-represented from the color of the barrel. In reality, in some instances, the authentic color produced was many colors off.

Usability and Stability

The 4mm heart is a lot thick and will generate a great deal of color with minimal work. As stated previously, the inclusion of water causes it rather simple to spread so that you are able to cover a good deal of canvas fast with them.

We really prefer the hexagonal barrel and it provides a much better grip and control. The one big issue (that his somewhat common by many oil-based cores) is the guide is somewhat delicate.

It appears to crack and break with almost any exceeding degrees of pressure. For the ones which have a propensity to push somewhat difficult, you might become frustrated at always having to resharpen those pens.

This also induces the pens to wear much faster and because those are premium-priced, it may be a small blow in your pocketbook. What’s more, the lead is somewhat harder than other acrylic cores and might remind some folks of a wax pen. Nevertheless, you do not need to bargain with the wax blossom that’s fine.

Packaging and Display

These watercolor pens arrive in the marginally standard Lyra offering of a metallic tin.

Overall, it’s a wonderful look but nothing revolutionary.LYRA Rembrandt Aquarell Artists' Colored Pencil, Set of 72

Lyra Rembrandt Aquarell Artists’ Colored Pencil Value

Lyra colored pens of most forms fall in the premium cost range, even though they’re still noticeably more affordable than lots of the additional higher-end pens available on the market.

Becoming oil-based, they really tend to fall towards the lower end of the purchase price spectrum in contrast to other oil pens but still markedly more expensive than many wax pens.

You need to expect to pay a little extra to enjoy the unique benefits of a petroleum pen and Lyra offers a correctly performing petroleum watercolor pencil in a much lower barrier to entry.

Overall Ranking

This Pencil provides us another fantastic oil pen to encounter, they do a fantastic job with it.

Color output is quite great and representative of a number of the other premium oil pens we’ve come to appreciate. Their capacity to transform water is a great deal of fun and something everybody should experience.

For the cost, these really are a good value for individuals wanting to test out some oil-based pencils.
