Some new pencils arrived at my local art shop. Although I have heard of Mitsubishi pencils before… that set of 100 in that unique looking display box… I have never seen these ones: Uni No. 888. After some internal debate and a few web searches that revealed nothing much I decided to purchase them with a voucher I got for Christmas.
So far I’ve only done a test swatch in my colour swatch book (mixed up the colours a bit… light flesh should be with the oranges and the very lovely coral red needs to be in the reds.).
The colours are very bright and smooth. Initially they feel very similar to Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Stand by for a proper review when I can finish a few pieces with them.
