    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.

    Looking for a coloured pencil that is smooth, rich, creamy yet holds a point, with a high pigment payload? This is it! When you first pick up these pencils with their thick diameter and quality wood casing, you feel and smell the quality! Being of extraordinary lightfastness, you never have to worry about fading or that annoying wax Bloom situation. Yet another product from this brand that I find is rivaled by no other. It’s a pleasure to use products that assist you to create what you desire. It’s worth every ZAR!

    Feels like titanium clubs in your hands, you feel the quality before you even start,.
    It will never disappoint you!
    I needed versatile colors, off whites, not your standard primary and secondary colors that are in every pencil set.
    It makes my cheaper colours take backseat (I don’t use them anymore) since I’m in love with Caran D’ache.
