Triangle shaped pencils!
Koh-i-noor make two ranges of extra large triangular coloured pencils:
the professional TrioColor range and the Magic Marbled range. The triangular shape and large size makes them easier to hold, ergonomic for those with grip problems. The flat sides keep them from rolling away. Even though they are fatter than a normal pencil they can easily be sharpened with the larger barrel of any two-hole sharpener as the coloured core is still round, it’s just the wood barrel that is triangular.
TrioColor set comes in a clever pencil-shaped wooden box!
Koh-I-Noor spans the globe in search of rich, top quality pigments for their Triocolor pencils. These pigments are highly concentrated and perfectly dispersed throughout the entire Polycolor color range. Triocolor pencils also maintain excellent light permanency, creating vibrant, durable pieces of art.
Another key component of the Triocolor pencil is the use of the special oils in the pencil lead. These oils, along with other binders, allow the Triocolor pencil to create dense, even strokes without the use of heavy pressure. These 5.6mm diameter leads are encased in California Cedar, and can easily be sharpened with the larger barrel of any two-hole sharpener. The end result is water-resistent, non-toxic and suitable for all artists.
The Magic Colour special effects pencils let you create the most-colorful artwork. With every turn of the wrist the unique Mosaic Lead puts down a new special effect. With 5.6mm leads, Magic FX pencils are big, chunky and mega-bright – they inspire artists of all ages and styles!
