O to be a pencil manufacturer in 2016. Or any time in the last few years. Since it became cool for adults to do colouring in, what fun pencil sellers must have had.
This is my new set. I fended off the temptation to buy 60 top-of-the-range.
Of course you have to do some colouring in to test the performance, and I found a bit in a book about traditional patterns which lent itself to this exercise. I’m not a fan of colouring past a certain point,
and I had to buy 36 pencils because his book comes with one black and one red pencil, (for perfectly sensible reasons), and sometimes only the exactly correct shade of green will do. I fear this one came out a bit moralistic.
