Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the April Paletteful Pack. This month’s box was a collaboration with the Dear Jack Foundation. An organization that helps children and young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer
Here’s everything that we received in our April Paletteful Pack. There were 7 items in total, a great mix that focused on colored pencil sketches.
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert along with some stickers we received in the box. The insert lists each of the items that we received.
The reverse tells us about the Dear Jack Foundation
This solvent based pen mixes with colored pencils to create beautiful water-colored effects. This is entirely clear and has both a brush tip as well as a bullet tip. We’ve never heard of or used anything like this before!
There were 15 sheets of these 6×9 inch heavyweight drawing sheets included. You can use this paper with colored pencils, pens, pastels, charcoals and drawing pencils.
Because this eraser doesn’t contains any phthalate plasticizer you will achieve smear free and smudge free erasing. Having a high quality eraser is very important in creating beautiful sketches and colored pencil drawings.
We absolutely love these pencil sharpeners. Not only are they made with a high quality metal, but they have a superior blade. We love that it has two size options for both thinner and thicker pencils. Whenever we get one of these we hide it so the kids won’t lose it!
This pencil allows you to erase fine point black lead, colored pencils and charcoal
This is another item that we hadn’t seen before and weren’t aware was out there! What a nifty pencil!
Our absolute favorite item in this box is this exclusive sketch book. Not only is the cover super cool but it’s also the perfect size. With over 100 pages you’ll be drawing in this for many days and weeks to come!
This tin of 12 colored pencils are newly available and offer brilliant colors that are easy to use with most any drawing technique
We love that they come in their own little tin to keep them together and we CANNOT wait to use them!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Paletteful Pack is a great way to get your monthly dose of color. Whether you are a novice or a master this subscription gives you tools that are both useful and exciting. The presentation is wonderful, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is fantastic. Each of these items is made high quality from well known and respected art brands. The curation is perfect. This box gave us everything we needed to create beautiful colored pencil drawings – somethings we had heard of and some we hadn’t. We think this mix was awesome!
