I decided to take up painting last fall after I retired from my career, so the world of painting is new and very exciting to me. I have been experimenting with different mediums and paper. The new acrylic/Oil paint paper is by far the best quality I have used. It has a nice heavy weight and a beautiful very light texture that lets your brush glide over the surface. The price is pretty great too. Thank you, Castle, for offering great quality art supplies at reasonable prices. I hope that you will...

A little bit of these paints goes a long way. The colors are rich and easy to blend. They lay down easily and are the right consistency. They also dry quick enough that layering multiple colors is possible. They stay in place and don't drip. Can be used over the top of all of the colored pencils as well.

The color pages are large enough to display and allows plenty of space to create personal artistic skills and style. If the artist would like, they can trace the outline onto other CastleArts sketch and art papers using soft graphite pencils then erase the outlines as they color in the outline drawing so they can reuse the color pages several times as practice or trace several different pages together to create a collage. The paper in the books are great quality very smooth and bright. Each pict...

I love colors, I love glitter, I love sparkles, and I love neon anything. These pens are all that and more. I make greeting cards and I am a colorist. These are perfect for what I do. They are sparkly, they are bright and they are great.

I first discovered these pens at an arts and crafts session, and after doing some sketches with them, I was hooked. I made it a point to get my own set soon after. You definitely get your money's worth with this set; you're getting 100 pens for less than 50 cents apiece. The colors are eye-catching, and they write smoothly. I had a bit of trouble with the grayish-green glitter neon pen, but I used some warm water to unclog it, and that did the trick. Speaking of the glitter (and glitter neo...

I am laying in a supply of the Castle Arts pencils. They are made in China, when China implodes we will not be able to get any more! Hang on to your hat!

As soon as my drawing set arrived I sat down and tried them out! This is a sample of one of my pieces made using the Castle drawing set. They are great.😊

I saw an add for the Woodless watercolor pencils and decided that I could afford them while they were 50% off. I received them within the week and used them right away. They're exactly what I wanted, vibrant color that's so silky when water's added. Highly recommend them for a fun time creating!

I LOVE these colored pencils. So much in fact I am planning to buy the other sets. The art I submitted does not do them justice because I was still testing them out but I’m so happy with this set. The case is gorgeous. I love the color selection. They sharpen like butter, almost too well you can accidentally whittle your pencil down to nothing if you’re not careful. They apply nice and smooth. My complaints are all minor. 1) They are numbered but not in order so filling out the provided swatch q...

I love this black paper, it is durable and has good tooth for colored pencil. I used a combination of metallic and regular colored pencils on this drawing and both worked well and the paper stood up to many layers.

Was looking for the best art products that would suit my needs at prices down to earth. Castle Art products fit the bill and then some. The products are real quality for the price and surprisingly easy to use.

Awesome colored pencils for the price. Very smooth, but I do find that some of the pencils lack the smooth consistency of the others. If you are going to swatch, double check your pencil! Some of mine came out of order slightly. I would recommend to anyone who likes to color.

Love the gold pencils, I wish they sold them individually, good quality really only one issue with the lead not being in center of pencil and one splintered pencil. Those are definitely outliers to the set. I really like them.

These oil based colored pencils are beautiful the color selection is generous and the pigment is rich and soft. I recommend after bringing them inside your home to allow the pencil case to warm up to room temperature before first using. They sharpen easily but must use careful sharpening motion by holding the pencil steady and turning the sharpener around the pencil making sure only the color is being sharpened and not the wood shaft until needed as to keep a good amount of wood to support the p...

I am very picky about colored pencils. I am a colorist. I have a few metallic pencils but I thought why not get more? I saw you were having a sale so I decided to splurge. I really like them and I love all the extra goodies that came with them. I am very impressed. I would recommend them to everyone!

I love the Pastel Tints! I also appreciate the courtesy and quickness I got from customer service when I emailed a question. One more thing…I learned more from the 27 page coloring guide that came with my purchase than I’ve learned in a year of coloring. The experience has made me much more likely to make future purchases from Castle Arts. In the picture I uploaded, I colored the pastel colored flowers and the gnomes hats, clothes and shoes with Pastel Tints.

I've used this set in the past, but ended up giving them away because i was tired of coloring for awhile, after some time i wanted to restart coloring again and wanted to get this set again. I love that there was a swatch chart this time.

Katharine B.
I did a double take when I saw the Harmonious collection, because I recently acquired the Pastel Tints. I love how each of these sets extend my choices, as they work with all the other Castle Arts color pencils. Even the Gold. I organized the pastel tints together with the soft touch set, which is better because I doubt I would color something with just pastel tints {not my thing}. But I want to keep the Harmonious separate. The Harmonious set has enough dark and light tones, you could us...

I love the colors. I have all your pencils, watercolor pencils and tubes. All I need is the ability to purchase individual pencils like black. I also like the drawing paper. Ever need someone to work from the USA let me know. Big Fan Donna Turner Huron, South Dakota

I bought this set for my pre-teen niece, who is a budding artist. She loves it! I will gladly purchase it again if she asks for it. Delivery was as promised and packaged well. I have no issues with my order.

Absolutely LOVE this set! I’m no professional but from what I’ve experienced so far I’m a huge fan of the quality of these pencils. The colors lay down smoothly, they blend well, and the pencils stay sharp longer than other premium brands I’ve used. I’ll be buying another set of these. My only complaint is that Castle Arts doesn’t sell pencils individually.

This colorful set is a lot of fun to explore. The how-to insert walks you through the steps to complete a Kandinsky-inspired piece of art, and the set is nicely packaged in a designer tin. I purchased one for myself and a few to give as gifts. Win-win!

These colors are STUNNING. I was so incredibly happy to see so many pretty purples! They are also super buttery. I really appreciate how different these colors are from other sets out there because I’m always looking to expand my color options. 101/10 would definitely recommend!

I have been buying colored pencils from Castle Arts for a few years. I love this set for their muted colors and how well they go with every other color in the set. 100% would recommend buying this set to go with any other set you may have.

I love this watercolor paper! Holds alot of water, blends well , lifts color of you need it too, it’s so close to acting like 100% cotton paper that I would almost think it was. I highly recommend this watercolor paper .

I think the Castle Arts Gold pencils are perfect…not too soft and not too hard. My hand doesn’t ache after coloring from having to use more pressure, but I still feel very in control of how the color is working with the paper.

I ordered this and another set. I received notice it had been delivered. I didn't have it. I notified the Post Office and they said they'd look. I also notified Castle Arts and they were super helpful. I want to thank Ronald Hinolan for his prompt attention on this matter. He was great and I finally got my order. It was worth the wait!

The Van Gogh tin has a wide variety of colors, perfect for those larger pages that need more variety. Castle makes all different themed tins, the hard part will be deciding which one to buy next. Their pencils lay down smooth and blend well. Also, the customer service here can't be beat. Happy Coloring....
