Pros & Cons
Darice 80-Piece Deluxe Art Set provides a variety of art supplies for drawing and painting. This is great art kit for a beginner/budding artist or student. The kit comes in a compact and light weight, yet sturdy wooden box with a snap-shut handle. This makes it easy to carry around and eliminates worrying about the box opening up accidentally or items falling out time and again. This kit includes water colors, oil pastels, color pencils, wax crayons, glue stick, eraser, ruler, scissors, sharpener, paint brush etc.
However, users find the kit to be of poor quality as most of the materials are either dried out or does not work well on paper. Some users also mention that the quality of colors is not at par. Also, some users are not happy with the sheet of paper glued on top of the box as it ruins the looks and sometimes leave the paper stuck on the box itself. This set is useful for students or beginners but definitely not for artists.
Overall, the Darice80-Piece Deluxe Art Set offers a wide variety of accessories, colors and media to students or beginners. It is considered to be a decent art set for the price and makes a good gift for kids who love arts and crafts.
