Faber Castell Polychomos are the finest oil-based colour pencils on the market. Each pencil has a 3.8mm lead which is coloured with high-quality artists' pigments suspended in an oil-based binder. This lead is bound to its casing of Californian cedar-wood, which renders it exceptionally break-resistant. It is water-resistant, smudgeproof and has exceptional covering power, though it will also sharpen to a very fine point for detailed work. The full range includes 120 colours which are graded good, very good or maximum for light-fastness.

According to Faber Castell's light-fastness scale, this pencil is graded excellent (***).

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)
