I have a couple different brands of pencils that I use but used my Faber Castell Albrecht Durer pencils on this snowman. I had just received them as a gift this spring and hadn't had a lot of time to play with them. I love them but they are a little fatter than many of the pencil brands and I had to purchase a new electric pencil sharpener for them because they wouldn't fit in the old one. If you are interested in watercolor pencils I would recommend this brand highly but be forewarned they are more expensive than other brands also obviously fatter. I also have a set of Derwent and a small set of Prismacolor that I've used in the past. Of the two I prefer the Derwent but both are about the same retail price.
I hope that you take a look at this article when it is published in December. http://toletown.com/ezine/
