    Smile 2mm colored leads

    I see a lot of people who love using colored pencils. How many are using the clutch holder with different colored leads. Any favorites on the lead. Any photos to share?

    I used the leads that came with my Caran d'Ache Mario Botta and found them to be watercolor leads!

    I use Staedtler (blue and red) and Koh-i-noor Hardtmuth (blue) ones.

    Both have their strength.
    I like especially the color and feel of the Koh-i-noor, but they are really brittle.
    The Staedtler are also not bad, they are not brittle, a little bit harder and the color is less vibrant.

    I published a good number of sketches using them in the Art Gallery thread (in case you are interested to see some results)

    mh, the koh-i-noor leads are good working for aquarell. (sry for the bad paper)
