Kidzworld reviews art supplies from Sakura of America!

If you want to get in touch with your inner artist, you're gonna need the right supplies! Kidzworld is taking a look at some cool and colorful products from Sakura!

Pigma Sensei Manga Drawing Set

Whether you're a professional or you're just starting out, this six-piece set has all of the basic tools you'll need to draw manga. The kit features a "fixed sleeve" mechanical pencil and graphite eraser plus fine tip, bullet tip, bold tip, and plastic tip pens. The pens don't smear or feather and they don't bleed. Plus Sakura supports Manga Start, an artist group that encourages kids' illustration.

Sticklers and Soufflé Pens

If you're a stickler for color, the Sticklers pack is for you. The kit comes with self-adhesive silver (or gold) sticker outlines that you can color in with the included Soufflé pens! The pens have a specially formulated "puffy" ink that also works well for decorating cell phones, iPods or yearbooks. We love the look of these cool pens, but they can be a little tricky to use. Make sure not to go over the same area repeatedly for best results.

Gelly Roll Shades

Pick your favorite color and get it in three Gelly Roll shades! These color-matched three-packs have pens that come in a metallic finish, glitter finish, and a regular finish. These are the ultimate yearbook signing pens for the girl who wants to ooze fabulousity!

Cray-Pas Junior Artist Pastels

So your art has moved beyond the crayon stage and you need some new supplies? It's worth checking out. The pastels are smooth to apply and great for mixing and blending. Packs come in either 12,16, 25, or 50 intense colors that can be used to achieve a variety of effects.
