These sketching leads are the best I have ever used. I will continue to use them and will tell all my work associates and friends about them.

Excellent assortment of leads and holders, thought heavy, the media works beautifully.
Rated by: alexi n. in newark, DE
I have worked for many years with nero leads and I like their graphic strength and their range of tonal values, from delicate lines to juicy bold marks. They are similar in appearance to charcoal, but much more stable to smudging. I'm glad I found them again in the version of Cretacolor.
Rated by: Heather D. in Bradenton Beach, FL
These sketching leads really helped me to explorer many diverse techniques and grow as an artist. If they were good enough for the masters they are good enough for anyone interested in art.
