This is a quality tin of 36 'Polychromos' (many colours) Colour Pencils of 'Finest Artists Quality'.
The robust, hinged, dark green tin measures around 32.5 cm x 19 cm x 1 cm when closed.
Each coloured pencil has 'FABER-CASTELL' embossment along with 'Germany/Polychromos', the colour name and its unique code & 'SV'.
They are rounded barrel and completely smooth. They are easy to sharpen (and you can get a reasonably fine point) without losing half the pencil in the process of doing so, if my experience is anything to go by.
From the base of the tin
1. Soft vibrant colour laydown
2. Thick oil-based lead, water-resistant & smudgeproof
3. High quality pigments in bright colours, unsurpassably lightfast and acid free
4. Lead SV bonded to prevent breakage
5. Artists' colour pencils with thick lead 3.Read more ›
I treated myself to these because I wanted a softer pencil plus they had such good reviews, and I haven't been disappointed. They are really gorgeous pencils, soft but not to soft and great quality leads so they dont keep breaking all the time.
The colour quality is excellent and the range available is fantastic.
If I had to give any negative points, I would say that I find them difficult to keep in a really sharp point without breaking the very end off. I am very heavy handed though and tend to press too hard, so I would imagine if you are more careful with them them this wouldn't happen.
You can do very fine detailed work with them, as well as larger shading areas. They are really enjoyable to use.
Lovely pencils, I would highly recommend them.
I just wish I had bought a larger set, because these were so worth the money. The set lacks some skin tones though, so if you draw a lot of humans I might buy some single pencils as well, or a larger set.
The tin is nice, and seems fairly sturdy. I've had no problem with opening it like I have with others. They came decently packaged and undamaged. There is a wide range of colours available, with several shades of each. I'm going to buy a larger set in the future and will recommend these to many people.

These are my favourite colour pencils. They layer and blend well, colours are vibrant and they don't get a wax bloom.Published 6 days ago by No 22
So much better than the cheapy ones that came with my first colouring book. So worth the price which averages £1 per pencil. Buy a sharpener too!Published 23 days ago by CPatter
