- Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor 72 Piece Premium Artists Pencils
Wendy, South Africa. 21 June 2017
I love these for adult coloring, the only thing is you need a good sharpener one with a helical blade, normal sharpeners make the points break, I think because they softer pencils. I'm very happy I paid a bit more to get quality pencils. I will buy these again. The 72 set has such a variety of colour.

I have several sets of artist grade pencils and these remain my favourite non-water solubles (my favourite watercolour pencils are Lyra Rembrandt Aquarelle, btw). I will leave the wax-based Derwent Coloursoft out of this review, but when I compare the oil-based Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor with the much-hyped and overpriced oil-based Faber-Castell Polychromos, the Lyra's are by far the best. The pigment is vivid and rich (one simply cannot get the same level of vividness with the FC Polychromos, no matter how many layers one add; and if one try, the polychromos starts laying down in smears and streaks like cheap oil pastels). The leads are soft, but enough harder than wax-based pencils that they stay sharper for longer and the finest points do not break off the moment one presses it to the paper. They are excellent for layering and blending; and the included Lyra Rembrandt Splender (which one can also buy separately), is probably the best blender on the market - I even use the Splender with my Derwents, as the Derwent blender and burnisher are just not as good. Two of the colours, light blue and light violet, feel somewhat chalky and do not blend as well as the rest, but this is a minor issue in comparison with the quality and ease of use of the other 70 pencils.

Wow, you will not be unsatisfied. I love it.

I'm still getting used to these new pencils but so far I do like them a lot. My only complaint so far is that I can't seem to get as many layers as I want with these. I'm able to layer more with my Derwent Drawing pencils. I'll experiment with different paper and see if the tooth of the paper makes a difference in the ability to layer.

Absolutely LOVE my new pencils. Great quality, amazing colors, and they're neatly packaged. Couldn't wait to try them when they arrived!

The variety of colour is beautiful. I had to google how the use the Splender (it's a blending pencil and theres 2 in the box).

Brilliant pencils to work with. My favourite so far.

Love these, They have very nice colors! very natural ones as well!. Some pencils are softer then others which I presume is linked to which color. Aka silver is more rough in the hand but comes out on paper beautifully. Comes with a splender pencil to smooth out. Also What I liked about these is that you almost don't see the pencil lines but it becomes a smooth surface. This is even better after splender use. Comes in so many colors and they blend well!
