Gioconda Pastel Pencils are highly pigmented, lightfast and fade-resistant. Their quality, light permanency and concentration of pigment produces durable, striking results. The soft pastel leads have a soft, creamy feel and are excellent for blending and toning on light or dark surfaces.
The pencils have California Cedar Wood casings that allow for simple sharpening and the ability to draw very fine lines even with such a soft medium. Pastel pencils offer more variety of detail and less mess than traditional stick soft pastels.
Pencils are available in a range of colors in metal tin sets and come pre-sharpened.
