I love Koh-I-Noor for their high-quality art materials at low prices. For £30 you get 48 pastel pencils in this Giaconda set and you really cannot get better than that. If you overlook the bog-standard tin box – mine came bashed and dented – you get beautiful pencils in the livery of Luminance pencils with smooth pastel laydown – non-scratchy to say the least. They are not dusty and lay down neat and clean. A lovely range of colours and perfect control. These are going to become a fast favourite I am sure.
