Derwent’s Lightfast pencils are their first oil-based coloured pencil; formulated to be 100% lightfast, so the colours won’t fade for up to 100 years under museum conditions. The smooth oil base of the core creates a rich vibrancy and can be mixed on the page to create paint-like effects. All the colours in the Lightfast range are vegan-friendly. (currently 36 colours available)

Great for fine, detailed line work, these colours can also be used for bolder outlines or shadow work.  Your colour range can be expanded by tinting and mixing colours directly on the paper surface, thus creating a more natural look to your work. Experience how pigments completely integrate to form a new and vibrant colour!  

Derwent Lightfast Oil-Based Single Pencils are also available in tin sets.

Derwent’s first oil-based coloured pencils are 100% lightfast and with a smooth texture, it is a real joy to work with.

Derwent Lightfast pencils are oil-based, smooth and creamy with a beautiful laydown of rich colour. They are easy to blend and layer and can also be mixed with other mediums to create new colours or to create a painterly effect when dissolved. Being oil-based they are compatible with oil mediums. The innovative thick core gives a dense colour application, which brings vibrancy to any drawing. Derwent Lightfast pencils are not water-soluble so cannot be mixed with water. As an oil-based pencil, they can be mixed and thinned on the page with a solvent-based medium just as with oil paints.

It is available in a range of 36 lightfast colours.  The vivid colours are specially formulated to combat the effects of UVA radiation, 100% lightfast and guaranteed to last 100 years under museum conditions, it complies with both the ASTM D-6901 and Blue Wool Scale ISO 105. Strict testing for international lightfast standards is done in Arizona, US.

A note about lightfastness, this does not equate permanence, as other factors can affect the permanence of work such as humidity, temperature, atmospheric pollution, the reaction between chemicals and pigments, the paper being used, etc.

Being ideal for works on permanent display it is perfect for professional artists as well as hobbyists who exhibit their work. Colour names and numbers are embossed in blue on each pencil for easy identification. The Easy-to-grip round barrels feel nicely in your hand and will fit standard pencil sharpeners. Handheld blade sharpeners work well with Lightfast, providing the blade is sharp.

For optimum performance of the pencils, note the following guidelines:

        Use high-quality pH neutral heavyweight paper

        Create strong, even layers and avoid damaging the surface

        Avoid direct sunlight when exhibiting your work

        Consider mounting your work behind glass

        Lightfastness might be compromised if mixed with other media   

Additional information:

Here are award-winning US artist Jesse Lane’s thoughts on the Lightfast range. He designed the awe-inspiring eye on the Lightfast packaging!

“These lightfast pencils are Derwent’s first oil-based pencils. The firmness of the lead is a good balance between soft and hard. It can make a fine point without breaking immediately, while still maintaining a bit of the smoothness of a creamy, soft pencil…What I love about the Lightfast colour selection: some colours are almost, but not quite, black. I find this super helpful when creating subjects fading in and out of a shadow.” Jesse Lane

    I completely fell in love with these pencils and the best news is that the 72 set will be released soon. The lightfast goes on so creamy you almost get the idea that it could be a crayon but in pencil form. They cover the area very quickly and with little preasure you have this dark rich colors. I think these pencils will work well for people that hands get tired soon and you need min. preassure and the pigment is there. They hold their point well and I haven’t had any breakage so far. The lightfast obviously plays in the artist favour with keeping that pigment for a 100 years under museum conditions. A realy great pencil that I can definately recommend.
