RRP £1.60

Price £1.40

Polychromos artists’ pastels contain a high level of pigment, and are free of lubricants and wax. The crayons can be smudged to create fine transitions of colour. Harder than the soft pastel crayons, Polychromos crayons are also well suited to drawing. The square cross-section assists in the drawing of very fine details, as well as the shading of larger areas. Polychromos artists' pastels are characterised by their stable consistency, economy of use and excellent adherence to paper, cardboard, wood and stone. Only minimal fixing is required, ensuring that the pastel drawings retain their vividness of colour. Polychromos artists' pastel crayons can be ground into a fine pigment powder using sandpaper, and then mixed with oil, resin or an acrylic medium to form paint.

Polychromos are my favourite to use for coloured pencil drawings - a very fine point can be achieved allowing for very high detail, and the colours are very pigmented. I have tried many other brands including Derwent and Prismacolor but always come back to these. Love that they can be bought individually so can top up my sets when I need to (Posted on 22/11/2016)

I love these pencils, they retain sharp points and allow you to create many different textures. (Posted on 31/10/2015)
