Prang crayons exceed my expectations in performance, blending, layering, burnishing and the sixty-four colors provided are comparable to the same package in the popular Crayola (TM) brand.To create sketches and even finished artwork, these work well in my studio as a less expensive alternative to artist-quality crayons, and find I use them a lot for sketches and color planning before beginning a piece using the more costly materials. ..
These do have good color with high coverage and a nice smooth application feel. But, we found we were breaking them more than the standard crayons and had to learn to reduce the amount of pressure that could be applied. The packaging is also very flimsy and will not hold broken crayons (due to the hole in the front) and will also drop them from the bottom.
