Black Widow Coloring Pencils

I have been hearing about Black Widow pencils for a while, but being who I am I was skeptical about them, not sure they’d live up to the hype.  I recently received a set as a gift and am no longer skeptical.  Loved the vibrant colors in these highly pigmented pencils, how they layered beautifully, and how easy they were to blend.  They are soft, but not too soft.

I had to test drive these pencils when I received them, so I colored this page from my book Coloring Gifts: Gifts of Friendship.  I went a little crazy with the colors but I wanted to test as many pencils as I could.  This page is done with colors from the original Black Widow set.  I fell in love with the pencils and am now the happy owner of all three sets, I have photos of sample pages of all of them below, scroll to see them all.

Black Widow pencils are available in three sets of 24 pencils (the original Black Widows, a Scorpion set and a Cobra set), each set has different colors for a total of 72 colors as of today.   They are available on Amazon
