Holbein Artists’ Pencils are a range of soft and vivid artists’ coloured pencils from leading arts manufacturer Holbein.
Each pencil has has an extremely soft and buttery feel with a vibrant colour output. Holbein use high-grade pigments which exhibit little fading or discoloration by light. The mixture of oils, waxes and premium pigments results in a very thick layer of colour that pops off the page.
Each pencil has a comfortable 7.8 mm round barrel with a thick 3.8 mm core, giving artists the ability to lay down a lot of colour at once. The pencils are pre-sharpened and require use with a good quality sharpener because of their softness. This softness and the richness of colours makes these very good for vivid pieces or for certain aspects of a drawing that you want to stand out.
This set contains the following colours: Pink, Salmon Pink, Cream, Naples Yellow, Lettuce Green, Cobalt Green, Ice Green, Sky Blue, Lavender Blue, Rose Pink, Wisteria, Mauve.
