Product Review: Artist Grade Watercolor Pencils (set of 36) by Evergreen Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.


This set of Artist Grade Watercolor Pencils comes with a variety of colors. There are 36 pencils in the set which provide different shades of blue, red, green, yellow, brown, purple, and pink. There is also one black in the set with some other colors that are kind of close to black. Mine came in an aluminum or aluminum-like case which has a space for each colored pencil to fit.

It wasn't a big deal to me but the case arrived a little dented and the colored pencils were not all in their places when I opened the shipping box (please keep in mind that they might be making a change with this). The case still fits the colored pencils in their spots and closes. None of the pencils were damaged that I noticed though and all their tips looked fine to me.

These colored pencils colored pretty smoothly on a page in an adult coloring book and on a coloring page with a little thicker paper. I just used them as colored pencils in the adult coloring book. I added water to the other coloring page. The colors came out the richest when I added water to them, making it into a watercolor painting. The colors were not as rich when I used them without water in the adult coloring book. Since they are watercolor pencils I think adding water to them is supposed to work better for them anyway, although I am glad they work both ways.

I like that the top of the pencils shows what color each is. They also sharpened pretty nicely with my electric pencil sharpener.

My review= 4.5 out of 5 stars

I received this product free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
