My apologies to Crayola

In this post I suggested that Crayola Twistables Colored Pencils should be reserved for coloring books. At the time I wrote that misguided review, all I could see was the inability to get a sharp point on them. However, I have totally changed my mind about Twistables since falling in love with these pens. Twistables are the perfect companion to the Pilot Frixion Erasable Gel Pens.

Marking key words is a major component of inductive Bible study. (If you are unfamiliar with inductive Bible study, click here to print out a free downloadable introduction.) Twistable Colored Pencils and the Pilot Frixion Gel Pens are the perfect match when marking the text. I use the gel pens to make a symbol over a word or phrase and then use the colored pencil to color it in. Both have no bleedthrough and both are erasable.

I’ve been studying the Bible inductively for 20 years. Having these pens and pencils in my pencil pouch make me feel like I can tackle any passage with confidence. No bleedthrough and erasable? Crayola Twistables Colored Pencils + Pilot Frixion Erasable Gel Pens = a Match Made in Heaven!

  1. Haha! I had written off the twistables since you last review. Now it looks like I may have to try them for myself. Especially since they are easier to find a bit more affordable than the frixion pens.

  2. Please note that you don’t have to buy Crayola’s ERASEABLE Colored Pencils… the regular Twistables erase just fine… just use a soft white eraser.

  3. You know I do learn something here everytime I come through here. I have been really wanting to buy the frixion erasable highlighters! I have not tried them yet so I really am hoping to pick those up but might try to grab some of these too. Nice color combinations.
