Details: This is one of the first coloring pencils sets I bought. I have been using it for the last 5 years or so. The pencils have lasted this long, except for the black color pencil, which is worn down to just a few centimeters. The cores are very durable, and they are resistant to falling damage. I am a bit clumsy with my drawing supplies, I always tend to drop a pencil or two. The pencils have managed to avoid breaking most of the time. The colors blend and layer easily, or so Derwent claims. I am not big with color blending. I can usually finish with the drawings pretty fast. The color rangers from Acid Yellow to Gray White.
