Excited to try out these crayons!! Seems the same, yet different from the distress crayons. More of a pastel media. Let me say that I was disappointed in how the crayons arrived...all the tops were mushed. So, obviously very soft and (in my opinion) poor package design. This is the main reason for a "3 star" rating.
I started playing with these today by trying the drip technique. I am impressed with how the color carried from top to bottom with the water...blended very nice as welll so looking forward to more play and techniques.
