Disappointment of these metallic colored pencils
Of all of the fine pencils and supporting items for those of us that enjoy this medium I was clearly disappointed from the very beginning of their useage. many of the bluish colored pencils have a greater frequency of breakage in the leads. I changed the pressure with which I applied the colors. I even changed the type of lead sharpener I used to keep my point at the desired sharpness to no avail. The bluish and silver-gray colors above all of the others appear to be noticeably inferior. I catalog and sample every pencil, (colored or not), chalk or paint sampled on an appropriate sheet of paper so should I need a specific coloring or shade & hue, I know EXACTLY which item to reach for, however, although the metallic colors are quite beautiful on their own I have no idea what the Sam-hill some of the pencil colors are. Can't tell if they are browns, sepias, or red-purples, bronzes or coppers. By the time you do all of your sampling to assure that you have the correct stylus in hand, half of its' body is gone already. Please give these pencils an enumeration code number or color name and please have the quality engineering dept. mgr. verify the pigment material to the required hardness scale to assure compliance within the mfg's industry standards - that is IF YOU TRULY CARE WHAT WE HAVE TO WRITE TO YOU ALL HERE ON THE RECEIVING END OF THESE SITES. All of your other pencil products are 100% superb. THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SUBMIT OUR HONEST OPINIONS/EXPERIENCES.
