These have the same matte black, round barrel as the standard pencils, but happily they have a colour dipped tip so you can see which shade you're picking up at a glance. Again, there are no names or numbers to catalogue which colours are here, so you'd have to chart them yourself as I have done.
Erasing, Smudging & Sharpening
The 12 set is £8.99 and the 24 set £18.99, the latter I find probably a tad expensive for so little variety. On the other hand, these blend well and can be mixed together with the water to create different colours, so I'm possibly being over-critical. Overall I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a set of watercolour pencils, who maybe don't want to fork out for a full set of Derwent Inktense but still want a good saturation of colour.
I received these pencils in exchange for an honest review. You can find them on Amazon here:
