Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy, luxurious color I love colored pencils and have may wonderful sets and brands, but this is my first Caran d'Ache Luminance. I was doing portraits and pet portraits, and these were suggested. They really are smooth in application and have a creamy quality with vibrant color. A bit pricey but worth it. A great addition to my collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent color pencils! Excellent pencils. They blend well and colors brilliant. My favorite was the colorless blender it comes with which is the best blender I have ever used! Quite pricey but worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves These Pencils!!! I am a colored pencil junkie lol!!! I am fairly new to them and only started using them in my portraits about 2 to 3 years ago. When I first started with them I was terrible I had to teach myself to use them so if your struggling with this be patient don't give up and practice practice practice!!! I have several brands Prismacolors ,faber-castell and these I love them all but with that said they preform differently. These are pricey so I wouldn't recommend them to start out with unless you are experienced and can afford them. They perform smoothly and with a light touch you can add and blend many many layers without destroying your paper or having the wax bloom effect unlike with prismacolors The colors are richer and brighter a must have for any color pencil artist or enthusiast. This Blue Carb I created with these pencils. I hope this is helpful :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caran D'Ache - Caran Luminance 6901 Lightfast Pencil Sets Overall it is my opinion that this set of color pencils is a must if one want to improve their color pencil art pieces. Lightfastness, blend ability, richness in color and strength of pencils is second to none. The only area I wish was better is being able to get just as sharp of a point as polychromos even though they do sharpen well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intense colors Yes expensive but for me the perfect pencil for using on black paper..... There is no breakage..... Pencils can be bought individually to fill in the set as needed.... Note they are slightly thicker than average color pencil so when buying an electric pencil make sure it can accommodate Luminance pencils.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pencils but............ I have been drooling over these pencils for awhile and finally got some for my birthday. They lay down beautifully BUT and a huge BUT the colors written on the pencil in silver are extremely difficult to read - the barrel of the pencil is a lovely cedar however I would go for the barrel being the color of the pencil over aesthetics. Contacted Caran d'Ache about them - no response......pretty bad considering the price - great product not at all easy to see what color you are using. Probably will not add to this collection. They need to remedy this issue promptly. Great service from Jerry's Artarama though - fast, courteous and efficient!

What pencil sharpener do you use with your Luminance pencils?  I have a Skilcraft electric sharpener and they do not fit.  Thanks!

Asked by: Therese
I recommend the small sliver medal hand held sharper. They are very inexpensive very sharp and doesn't eat your pencil up
