Q&A (3)
Q Does the set come in a case?
A

They come in a silver Derwent pencil tin which holds in place each pencil so they are well protected within the case.

Q What pencil grade do I need?
A

Graphite pencils come in various weights and are graded from H (Hard) to B (Black). H pencils will tend to be used by architects, graphic designers and artists who illustrate fine details. The hardness of the graphite allows the pencil to make precise markings with little smudging. B pencils will tend to be used by artists for sketching. The soft lead is easily blend able and can be used to create shading and achieve tonal effects. Soft graphite is easy to smudge which is often used as an effect when drawing.

Q Are pencils graded universally?
A

All graphite pencils are graded from H (Hard) to B (Black). However, these grades are not strictly universal. For example, some brands may use a softer graphite during their manufacturing process than others. However, these differences are slight and the choice between which brands to buy will mostly come down to personal preference.

30th September 2016 Reviewed by Stefan Davison The package was quickly delivered which is good for standard delivery and j could only make a suggestion that the cost of delivery may be slightly reduced. The package came well wrapped and undamaged which is good for art materials and overall this order was great.

28th June 2016 Reviewed by Naomi Crosby an unnecessary purchase, really. they are too thin for me to hold comfortably. not their fault. I'll probably give them to someone. (they are wrapped in polythene, inside a tin, so will remain 'new' until I do so)

22nd September 2014 Reviewed by Hollie Marnitz I bought this pencil tin set as I was low on pencils and needed a set with a large variety. I do a lot of sketching and detailed pencil drawing so it's essential for me to have loads of different pencils. They are good quality for basic pencils and cover my needs quite well. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a basic assortment of pencils.
