9th October 2021 Reviewed by Elizabeth May Wow, what a selection of colours....will make my life easier although some would say it's"cheating"!
It's taken me a while to purchase this size tin, they are not cheap....but so glad I have. Now, I can just replace the ones I need.
Beautiful quality. Blending easy, due to waxiness.

She does have this make in the watercolour pencils that she uses daily and thinks they are the best she has used. We shopped around comparing prices and Cass Art was by far the cheapest we found . Before the purchase we went into the Liverpool store to ask for advice and they were very helpful and explained we would need to look for this online as it's not stocked in the store . The customer service team on the phone were extremely helpful so will definitely be making future purchases.
