These Polychromos sets include a variety of beautiful Faber-Castell colored pencils that contain the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed lightfastness. The pencils feature buttery smooth color lay-down and are easily blended and layered without waxy build-up.
The thick 3.8mm leads are break and water-resistant, smudge-proof, and provide permanent, rich color. The lead is housed in premium California cedar wood casings with SV bonding to strengthen lead and resist breakage. These colored pencils provide sharp fine lines and excellent point retention. Pencils come pre-sharpened and protected in strong metal tins.
