Very helpful video.
I would say that Crayola may actually be a better match with the pastels. Tombow Irojiten also have a cracking selection of pastels and ate much cheaper. X
You’re a wonderful colorist and teacher.

Brilliant Vid Claire xx
Claire, Thank you. The color comparison is very helpful. I just ordered a set of 50 Holbein pastel colored pencils through Ebay. They were pricy —$129.00 total (free shipping). Shipping will be 2-3 weeks from Japan to Seattle. My Electric Blue behaves the same way as your pencil —it’s a new pencil. Tricia
Loved the video. I splurged and got the 100 set of Holbeins for $208. You mentioned your Prismacolor Electric Blue was a bit gritty. I pulled mine out, tested it, and it is gritty as well. I am enjoying your videos.
Claire - what an awesome chart of colors you created - it is very much appreciated!!
Thanks Claire, so helpful and I sooooo love listening to your gorgeous accent.
Brilliant, thank you for this.
Would love to watch your tutorials
Thanks for the great video! I love your channel!
I love watching and listening to your videos. I've learned a lot about using colored pencils and thanks for the Holbein Prismacolor comparison .
Oh I love lilac and there isn't one in Polychromos, well there's a retired one that I can't get that isn't in the 120 set.. Makes me so sad, I was going to pick up the 12 pack of these Holbein pastel pencils today on ebay, 50NZD BUT then I saw there was a friggin 50 pack, a few neons in there, but nearly 50 pastel colours!! I almost died, now I need to save up for it I think, 180NZD :( BUT your video gave me an idea, I could individually buy lilac colours in other brands of pencils in the meantime :)
So helpful, thank you so much for helping me decide that I can live without spending that extra money on yet another set of pencils. :)
I have been looking for this conversion chart for a looooong time. Thanks so much.
