The Mont Marte Colour Pencils are soft and smooth to apply, and effortlessly achieve a great result, particularly when using Adult Colouring books. One tip I have when using colour pencils of any variety, is to take the time to learn about proper sharpening techniques. I know it may sound rudimentary, but it makes a huge difference to the life of your pencils. When sharpening make sure to use a high quality and sharp sharpener - if your sharpener is blunt you will find the lead will crack or crumble as the colour strip catches and twists in the barrel of the pencil. I personally prefer to knife sharpen as it reduces the strain on the colour strip (lead) that happens when the pencils is twisted in the sharpener.
