Their high standard ensures that Polychromos artists’ colour pencils are ideal for use in the graphic arts, for free artistic expression, and the precise colouring of plans.

Part of a unique colour-matching system that encompasses all Faber-Castell Art & Graphic Products, Polychromos Colored Pencils contain the highest-quality pigments for unsurpassed lightfastness.

The buttery smooth colour laydown offered by Polychromos pencils can be easily blended for layered effects, highlights, and transitions. These vegetable oil-based pencils exhibit a richness of colour and smoothness without the ugly wax bloom that develops with layering, in some of the other popular brands on the market. Faber-Castell’s quality standards are applied consistently throughout the manufacturing process. Top-quality materials reflect Faber Castell’s knowledge and long experience in the manufacturing of art material.

The Polychromos artists’ colour pencils have extremely break-resistant leads that are both water-resistant and smudge-proof and suspended in an oil-based binder. The leads are bound to a casing of Californian cedar-wood with Secureall bonding to resist breakage while providing sharp, fine lines and permanent, rich colour. The pencils are pre-sharpened. The pencils have exceptional covering power, though it will also sharpen to a fine point for detailed work. The vivid colours and optimal paintability will impress, along with many other advantages valued by professional artists.

Every pencil contains a lightfastness (LF) (light resistance) rating, as follows:

  • *** very good (100+ years).
  •   ** good.
  •     * reasonable.
