Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Faber-Castell's 9000 pencil provides all creative artists with an extensive range of pencils in different grades of hardness for sketching, graphic design and shading work. The "green pencil from Faber", which was already being mentioned with approval by Van Gogh and Goethe, has now become part of everyday life. The 16 different grades of hardness range from a delicate grey hue to a deep graphite black, and offer artists a wide range of possibilities. This art set contains 12 of the softer grades

Product Description

Brought onto the market by Alexander Graf von Faber-Castell in 1905, the 9000 pencil's quality and finely graded hardnesses have made it a favourite drawing and sketching tool for artists and draughtsmen. It is coated with environmentally compatible water-based paint, a technology which Faber-Castell was the first manufacturer to introduce. Its lead is completely glued together with the wooden shaft, making it especially resilient to breakage. Twelve pencils in a protective and durable tin in two sets. Art Set , 12 pencils from 8B to 2H. Design Set , 12 pencils from 5B to 5H.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faber v Derwent 5 Sep 2011
By Boshy
I have used Derwent Graphite pencils for years and have never found any to be as good, I have this set and some 2mm clutch pencils from Faber with their leads and they are not bad for rough quick sketches, but when it comes to my professional fine art graphite work they cannot match Derwent for laydown quality and more importantly clean blending, If you use a paper stump to blend with and blend in the direction of the pencil marks you will leave some texture, but If you blend 90% accross the the direction of the pencil marks then you should get a very smooth finish with no grain ( great for doing smooth skin on a portrait) they do blend better than other pencils, they just can't match Derwent. So if this is important to you then I reccomend passing on these and going for the Derwent 24 9h to 9b set Derwent Graphic Pencils 24 SET, once you use them you will never buy any others. Now I just wish I could convince Derwent to put out It's range in lead only format for my clutch pencils. Happy drawing...Boshy.

I have used them for a long drawing and they certainly raised the level of what I expected from a drawing. The longer you spend on the drawing the more useful you find the various pencils.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art Of Drawing 30 May 2011
By Jim
Verified Purchase
I was interested in drawing the human figure and wondered which would be the best tool to help me draw.There are a variety of drawing tools to choose from,from Pencils to Pens and Markers and they are equally as good as each other but for me a good quality pencil makes all the difference and Faber Castell 9000 Art Set was an excelllent choice. The set offers a choice of grades from 8B-H and B-2H which help with shading from light grey to intense black.
A good choice for any budding artist.
