It has only been a month, but so far these are the best scissors I have ever owned.
They are comfortable, sharp and cut through very thick material almost effortlessly.

Not as good expirience as others had but they do cut leather and cloth very nicely. My first ones had some blade damage out of the package but amazong sent me a replacement and the new ones look fine.

Not the most comfortable pair of scissors I've ever used, so I wouldn't be using it if I was planning to do hours of pattern cutting. But for every day use it's a good pair, as it's sharp and accurate.

I have to admit, after reading the reviews of this product (in USA and Australia), I thought it would be good but I just didn't know how good! The case alone is well worth the money, it is strong, sturdy and extremely well made with quality materials. All the little "extras" they put in there are really nice quality and the folding scissors are the best I have ever used in my 44 years. I have never used ergonomic crochet hooks before, but these are super nice, very comfortable and well made. I could not be happier with my purchase and will order from this company again, especially to order for my mom who went with a cheap company and paid the same amount for a fraction of what I got. I seriously recommend this product!

Great little crochet hook and accessories set for a beginner at a very affordable price. It provides you with everything needed to start your crochet adventure (apart from the yarn, of course). This set compares well with Boye hooks. However, I wouldn’t recommend this set if you are looking for super smooth hooks. They do work well though, and have a very comfortable grip. The case is also sturdy and well made. Love the little pocket inside that contains all the accessories. The zipper seems durable enough not to break. The fold-up scissors are handy, cuts well, but not my favourite (But again, it does the job). All-in-all, I would definitely recommend this set for beginners.

I love these crochet hooks and yarn bag ! Not only do the crochet hooks look good but they are super comfortable so I can crochet longer . The little purse they come in keeps them all together so I don’t have to hunt around under my wool looking for the right hook or my scissors etc . The yarn bag is great as it keeps my crocheting neat and tidy , is easy to travel with , stops my wool from tangling and allows me to crochet anywhere and anytime . I highly recommend these products . Excellent quality and value for money .

A bit trepidatious ordering these as I have been disappointed by similar items. They arrived very quickly.
I restore die cast toys and need something accurate but quick and easy for minute dots of colour on a model. I don't want to be skiddling about with paint, brushes etc etc when I just need a quick dab.
These pens fit the part brilliantly. Colours are vibrant and a great selection. They dry easily and don't react with the gloss fixative...all round I LOVE THEM.
If the designers read these revues, please, please produce the same thing but with a finer point....I will sing your praises whenever I use them...
Highly recommended product.

These are perfect for drawing on rocks - the purpose I bought them for. The colours are sharp and the nib size is just right. The colour glides on easily and can be secured with a spray of varnish ready to take part in the kindness project of leaving painted rocks for children and others to find.

I used Artistro paint pens with my grandkids, Miss 12 and Mr 8, and my daughter in law. We have been decorating terra cotta plant pots. We tried regular paints previously and it wasn't successful with kids. They loved these pens and could draw and colour in their art works on the pots. Daughter in law and I loved that we could also do more intricate patterns with the extra fine tip which didn't seem to get blunt. Also the paint dried quickly so we didn't really run the risk of smudging work.

They were the cheapest we could find anywhere, and I can't imagine finding any better by pricepoint....or for any more money to tell the truth. I'll be getting the bigger box soon so we have more colours. Can't wait to try them on some rocks for my garden :)

These were my first try at using Tombow pens and honestly I wasn't sold at first. But, after trying some other brands and then coming back to these, I get it. I use them for Modern Calligraphy and they write beautifully. I had heard that they aren't long lasting but that hasn't been an issue for me. Gorgeous colours but some are very pale, really nice for shadow effects. The yellow is a stunning muted mustard/gold colour which is by far my favourite. I would definitely recommend them.

I bought this to help me with hand lettering. Would recommend this brush pen to get the downward thick stroke and thin upstroke which is actually quite hard to do for beginners. I got the pastel colour, though I think I should've gotten one's with darker colours bc some are hard to see on white colours bc they are so light. These pens are quite dear, would recommend if you don't mind the cost.
Overall, I quite like these pens.

I adore these brush pens but find they dry out quickly / don't contain enough ink. Thinking of making my own water colours and using the neutral brush pen to save money. These are very pale colours so work well to mix with brighter colours / or against a darker background.

My daughter had a lot of fun tracing the different characters, and also those she likes on an A4 print out.
Quite an interesting concept.
Not sure if it's her age, but it's a little too simple for her as she is already learning to draw from YouTube. So perhaps it would suit younger kids who love to draw but can't yet follow YouTube lessons

My daughter (7) loves it. The light is bright enough to trace through multiple sheets of paper and it is quite robust. The templates offered on line add to the value and creativity it offers.
I was quite disappointed however that it is too small to fit a standard A4 sheet of paper. I chose this product specifically as it was advertised to fit the paper inside the frame. Had a known it wouldn't I would have chosen another brand. I was also disappointed to find that the product arrived with a deep scratch on the tracing surface around 2cm long. It doesn't affect performance but demonstrates poor quality control.

Great concept and I was looking forward to giving this as a gift to my daughter. Excitement led to disappointment when we opened this and started using it. The light is very dull and barely noticeable in a well lit room, so difficult to trace well. Improves as night time approaches and the room darkens, works reasonably well in a dimly lit room. Included pictures are good.

These work just as well if not better than some of the brand name ink blending brushes but at a fraction of the cost. I already have a set of brand name brushes and was worried before ordering these as I’ve previously had a dud set of cheaper brushes. After reading reviews I went for it and couldn’t be happier. In fact these are my new favourite brushes and I’m going to order some more.

I liked the nice case the pens came in. A good range of colors to use. You are given the choice to use either a brush or fine tip or both to color pictures. The only thing I did not like was using the brush part as the color was not as strong as other coloring pens.

I love these pens! Though slightly more expensive than most fine liners, these are less expensive than other microns and MUCH less than other brands that perform similarly. They are very dark, and hold up well against marker and water, as well as erasing. Make sure to let the ink dry first though. There was only one time the paper flaked off, but granted I was using printer paper so it wasn’t the pen’s fault.

This is an awesome set for inking comics, and artwork. I definitely recommend.

Loving the pens!

Have to acknowledge the customer service for being wonderful. There was one repeat in my pen set, and I was immediately refunded (partially) so I could purchase the missing pen separately. Overall, great experience.

Finally an actually legit one, package is sealed with barcode, all are in perfect condition. I've checked signs of inauthenticity, so far it's legit in every way. It's waterproof, the lineweights and quality are looking very consistent and true, and the text prints on the actual pen is looking true and authentic and all that.

Very nice markers! Colours don't match caps however, the caps are paler, I knew this from watching reviews before hand and I encourage you to do the same so you know what colours you will receive. Very juicy, lots of ink,and the brush tips is a good quality.
My only issue was a small error on the colour sheet included. It has marker R26 called Honey Tonoimo on their swatch and R28 called Colocasia. On the Markers themselves colour R28 is Colocasia Tonoimo and R26 is just Honey. No big deal but thought Ohuhu may like to know this for future printing.

Ohuhu's brush-tip markers were my first foray into alcohol markers, something that had been a dream of mine for nearly a decade!

Quick tips for beginners (like me)
1) Store your alcohol markers horizontally - this ensures an even distribution of ink between both tips of the marker.
2) Buy the right paper to use with them - chuck some marker paper in your shopping cart along with your Ohuhus before you check out! Marker-friendly paper is usually labelled as 'blender', 'blending' or 'marker' pads and papers. Like any alcohol marker, these puppies will eat right through your regular copier/printer paper.

I purchased the 72-set of brush and chisel tip markers from Ohuhu and I adore them. Vibrant colors, easy to pickup and use and exceptional pricepoint. I would recommend these markers over Copics for creating a strong set of markers for your base collection.

They come in a sturdy canvas-like bag which makes them

I love love love these markers. Such a great price for a quality product, Ive got a couple of premium brand alcohol markers and these hold up very well to them. My only suggestion would be to have some lighter colours in the set and to also have both cool and warm tones of each colour (the yellow especially all seem to lean to the warm side) The skin tones set also needs some light tones, the lightest ones are yellow ish and greenish, and then the lightest "skin" shade is very orange and becomes colour saturated very quickly if you are doing multiple layers or lots of blending.

Ive seen/read some people have gotten them and had some of the writing rubbing off or one of the markers already being dry but mine were perfect (and if they weren't Ive heard that customer service to sort it would be good.)

My friend and art teacher told me to buy these and I do not have one complaint!!! They are lovely and soft they are a pleasure to easily blend (I use my fingers I feel much more attached to my work that way). They are definitely on a par with PanPastels,
The colours are brilliant, hardly any dust. If I need to lift off some colour I can erase it or use the blender. I also keep a small grater in my desk because I often sharpen one side to a point for line work but I don't want to waste the filings so I put them in little tablet containers and label the colour and then I have some in powder form to dip a in a brush for no wastage.
I work with a piece of sandwich paper under my hand, or you could use copy paper.

The parcel finally arrived safely and I'm good condition. The pastels themselves are lovely and smooth with vibrant colours. They blend easily with my finger in the colour swatches I did as soon as they arrived.

The cons - actual dispatch from the time I ordered took weeks, and when they arrived the box has 2 Dark Greens (#230) but no Emerald Green (#229).

If the duplicate pastel had been White I wouldn't have been too put out - that's a colour I'd use more of - but Dark Green!? Emerald would have been great I'm seascapes!

A good selection of soft pastels, with vibrant colours and good blending ability. I sue them in mixed media artwork and after application of fixative they work well with other media.

I make detailed wooden ship models with intricate paint challenges. I have tried lots of brushes over the years (from cheap to very expensive) and these are hands down the best. Because they keep their shape and hold paint well they are a joy to work with. For fine detail I just touch the tip of the brush to the object, and these brushes have just the right balance of stiffness and flex to make that work. These will be my go-to brushes from now on.

I work in 1:148 scale so it is important to have brushes of reasonable quality. These are very well priced and as such I had no great expectations. I have a great set for very intricate stuff and these I thought I would try out. Very easy to hold, they arrived with several needing trimming of stray hairs and one with uneven shape. Apart from that they hold the paint well, distribute evenly and the shape of the body is excellent for the hand.

Overall well recommended if you have a sharp pair of scissors to rectify the bristle shapes and strays. Great value.

These are good paint pens for doing thin lines and dots as most paint pens are thicker. Nice colours. Only issue is the yellow is closer to a light orange. Each pen is individually wrapped. Pens are easy to start as ink doesn’t take long to flow to the nib. Comes with spare nibs.

Simple really, buy this product, you will NOT be disappointed, the paint itself gives a good solid finish with out to much repeating over the same area, good solid single lines, my advice is, if your doing rough surfaces, try not to press hard, I think it might just wear down the pen nib quickly, I'm trying my hand at mannequin paint art so these are perfect for that application...anyway, there good, so if your the artist that want's awesome colours and ease of use, these are the ones, just follow the simple instructions about pre priming the nibs and your good to go.
Happy art work everyone.

Intensity of colours amazing and easy to use. I am learning Pyrography and experimented combining wood burning and painting. The Artistro Paint Pens were fantastic to use on wood and did not "bleed" into the grain. Highly recommend this product.

For the price, not good
Some of these dont even work, which you get to discover half way through your artwork. Some dont even seem to have paint in them, or are dried out, maybe old stock. Some are missing wrapping, look like they have been returned before. Either way, for nearly $60, total rubbish

Great colour range in both brands of Pens. Lovely fine tips that are good for detailing. They work well on paper too. The natural colours in the Tooli-Art pens are really nice for contrast and the medium size tips outline and fill in well.
I have been using the Posca pens which I love, however I would certainly recommend the Tooli-Art and Artistro pens as a much more economical option.

After unwrapping, shaking and priming (slowly!) these worked well. Don't know for how long, only just started using them. It is a kind of sticky ink, and takes longer to dry than acrylic paint. They are not particularly suitable for blending or shading techniques. However as a detail adder, or for use in designs, butterflies, folk art, rock painting etc. they should be fine. Nice solid, pure colours. Easy flow. No mess. A fairly useful addition to the artist's array, just don't expect them to everything acrylic paints will do. .But if you're into folk art, there's no brushes to wash, no palette to clean, Cool!
