Details: This box of coloring pencils is one of the oldest sets of pencils I own. I have worn down the black pencil to an almost unusable size. Needless to say, I have made great use of these coloring pencils. As of now, I use them for my... let's say fashion drawings. I was originally practicing drawing in color. I would pick out a cute historical outfit and them attempt to recreated it with pen and coloring pencils. It has grown into something of a collection. It is all thanks to these wonderful pencils that speed up the drawing process. They are also non toxic, which makes them safe for people who eat coloring pencils. On a serious note, please don't eat your Derwent coloring pencils.
