Discover the ideal colored pencils. Artist grade wax-based lead offers strong pigment for deep color saturation. The lead core is perfectly centered inside the round wood case and adhered throughout so it resists breaking and sharpens evenly. Hard and dense, it's great for precise details and sharp lines, yet it smoothly blends, layers and transitions for creative control. Lacquered finish matches the core. Reusable tin is easy to open and transportable.
