These pencils are GREAT for sketching. The fit in the hand is far superior over round pencils and they don't go rolling off when you set them down. Unlike other thick pencils I've used, the graphite in these is very smooth - none of these nasty chunks that scratch up the paper or glue seams that fail, busting the lead apart and wasting half your pencil. By far,this is my sketching pencil of choice. Oh, and to sharpen, the wife gave me a makeup sharpener - its plenty wide enough, cheap and easy to get.
Sprayed a sanded antique table twice(sanding lightly with 0000 steel wool in between coats. Cannot find any more cans unless they contain primer. Tried a small amount for a final coat - the pain bubbled. I re sanded that section & am wondering what I can use since I can't get the original paint anywhere.
p.s. I have used this paint on other pieces with perfect results.
