The Lyra Rembrandt Aquarell is a beautiful pencil, which may sound odd given it is only a pencil, but the hexagonal barrel made with raw Cedarwood has a lovely exposed grain which enhances the pencil’s raw appearance.
The Lyra Aquarell sports a generous 4mm core, housed within a stylish 8mm barrel. On the very end of the pencil, is a large-sized pigment indicator, allowing for easy selection of colour when using the pencils. The brand name and colour information are printed on the pencil. Unfortunately there is no lightfast information on the actual pencil, however, on the inside of the tin, each pencil is listed with its lightfast rating beside it. On the bottom of this list is a legend explaining what each star means, from one star through to three stars.
