I have several different sets - like the ease of using these distress crayons, the portability, and the options they present. Absolutely love the colors in this set - they are rich, yet not overwhelming. They blend easily and are versatile. They lend well on autumn, animal, zoo, nature, camping, and so many more project themes.
This is my second order of this particular color batch of Distress Crayons. I have several other sets, but for this season, these are my favorites. I've used them to produce all my Christmas cards, Christmas ornaments and gifts for friends, and more. I love these colors. My only complaint about the Distress Crayons is that, for the colors to truly blend and work well together, you really must put down a layer of gesso on your ground first. I've used them with a range of surfaces and types of papers; if you don't gesso first, you don't get good blending, nor do Baby-Wipe color-removals work nearly as well.
I bought my first three sets of Distress crayons at theNovember2017 Carson Convention. I experimented with them right away before seeing any demos beside the one at the convention. Since then I've watched Tim demo these amazing crayons and I can't stop playing with these yummy colors. Tim has created the perfect hybrid of dye ink transparency and pigment ink opacity with the surprise of water reactivity! As usual, Tim has thought of everything and has the perfect container tins to hold these crayons. I had to buy a second tin with this last round of sets! Start playing and you'll find they are addictive.
This crayon flows easily when drawing or highlighting. I have given it a four star because of the same reason as the review title, flows easily. It tends to come off too easily where I don't want it too. It's almost like a melting crayon. Plus, I can't make it into an edge for getting close to small areas. It won't hold, it's too.....melting, the only word I can describe. Some may prefer this as for me as a Scrapbookers and card maker it's frustrating.
I am new to using the distress crayons and absolutely fell in love with them as soon as I started to use them on my projects. So easy to work with and I love that they match the other colors in the distress line. It makes it so easy to mix/match products in each project.
