The Polychromos artist’s coloured pencils have an especially soft, waterproof oil crayon lead made with pure pigments which provide for sleek and luscious drawing and painting. The extra thick lead can be sharpened to a fine point and is suitable for drawing delicate details as well for colouring in large areas. The wood casing together with the SV secureall bonding strengthen the lead and prevent breakage.
These coloured pencils have a buttery smooth colour laydown and great coverage abilities and can therefore be used on many different materials like paper, cardboard, wood or cloth. The colours are smudge-proof and waterproof but are turpentine soluble.
