Faber-Castell Polychromos Coloured Pencils - Black or Grey or BlueSelect from 119 colours
Artfully express your imagination with quality pigments.
Faber Castell Artists’ Polychromos pencils are durable coloured pencils with oil-based, highly pigmented 3.8 mm leads. Featuring California Cedar casing with a special bonding agent to minimize breakage and optimize point retention, these pencils will be ideal for precise colouring or free artistic expression. The oil based lead resists smudging, even when exposed to any form of moisture.
The artist quality pigment in each pencil creates true colours that blend easily for layered effects, highlights and smooth transitions. While most of the pencils in this line are lightfast, some colours may fade over time when exposed to light. Please refer to the colour chart for a complete list of lightfast ratings.
|Type||Artist grade, non-soluble, wood cased pencils|

I have used Faber Castell pencils often since 1965 and find them good but I recently wanted a particular colour and it was not available.
