ONME 36-color Set of Oil Art Colored Pencils Review

I got a new set of ONME oil art colored pencils. I love these!

They are high quality drawing pencils for writing, drawing and sketching.

I plan on using them for sketching.

I sketched up a possible t-shirt design for Isaak. I say possible because he hasn't seen it yet. At school the lunch ladies call him, "Isaak the great that holds a bear cup in his hands." I asked him, "Why?" He said, "I don't know I just like it, and asked them to call me that." So...they do. I asked him the other day if he'd like a t-shirt that said that. He said, "Oh ya!" right away.

He might want it more literal with a bear on a cup.

The magenta pencil looks dark purple, so I thought that what I was coloring it at first. It really didn't matter to me because it's just a sketch. If it were a finished drawing I'd test all the colors out on a scrap paper before coloring with them. It's pretty common to get different colors with art supplies. Acrylic paint is the worst with that. It always dries darker than it looks in the tube.

These pencils are eco friendly. They come in a brown tube, and the pencils are encased in a wood that's not painted. Since these are eco friendly they are great for pregnant women, and children over the age of 3. Under the age of 3 is a risk due to the sharpener, and the tips of the pencils falling off, and possibly causing them to choke.

This is a set of 36 assorted colors. There is a lot of variety! I can always overlap colors to get other colors.

If you are into the trending home/adult coloring books these are for you. A wonderful pencil set for coloring Secret Garden, Enchanted Forest, and Lost Ocean Coloring Books. 

They come sharpened and ready to sketch away. There is a small sharper that comes with the set. I love it because the electric sharpeners are not good for colored pencils. They eat too much away, and break their colored tips. 

You can blend these with water, turpentine, or mineral spirits. I use a product called Gamasol that is allergy friendly. I didn't blend the image above because it's just a sketch. 


$44.97 and now $16.99. 

Makes the Perfect Gift:

I like to have a lot of colored pencil sets around to give to kids for birthday parties. It makes an excellent present paired up with a cool coloring book, or sketch pad. I think many parents appreciate their kid getting art supplies over toys.

I like this set so much though. I think I'm going to keep it. 

Disclaimer: I received these color pencils for a discounted price for the purpose of this review. The opinions are 100% mine.

I do like the tube that they're stored in! And you're so right about the colors being dif. with supplies, but like you I know it's common, and so I don't mind.

Once approved by my client AKA Isaak I'll paint it on the t-shirt. No transfer, just paint it carefully.

That is a hilarious thing to call Isaak! I am sure he will LOVE the new shirt.

The pencils look really nice. I like the round storage tub they come in, too!
