    So comforting to know that art produced with Luminance will remain beautiful for as long as possible! The astonishing smoothness makes it a pleasure to work with, and the richness of the colours allow easy layering. The outstanding opaqueness is particularly noticeable on the lighter colours!

    I love the Luminance pencils. The 72 set consists of earthy tones, but dont let that put you off. The attached picture was done with it. These pencils are vibrant, solid, easy on your hands to hold. It has a bit of a scratchy feel to it on paper but you get a good solid coverage with it. I have done a few art pieces with it on Fabriano paper and have blended with odourless spirits (great effect). It is different from other pencils but I got so used to them very quickly. Then I must say this set has the absolute best black I have ever used! The white is opaque and great for blending, fixing mistakes and just being white. They hold their point well. I can really recommend them.
