We simply do not do enough to trumpet the quality of the drawing materials produced by the Swiss-based Caran d'Ache. These superior color pencils, the Pablo's, are amazing and are among our bestsellers.
The Pablo color pencil series meets the highest requirements demanded by artists, illustrators, graphic artists, and art teachers. 120 colors, available individually and in sets. The Pablo's contain soft water-resistant leads, ∅ 3.7 mm, and are very economical, thanks to their exceptional covering power. Excellent lightfastness. Each pencil shaft is hexagonal and end-sealed in the same color as the lead, marked with color name and code, and composed of the best cedar. Perfect for such techniques as shading, graded applications, mixed media, and drawing on wood and photographs. They can be combined with Supracolor Aquarelle and Neocolor crayons. Product conforms to CE EN71.
Layering and hatching: Subtly graded hues applied locally in transparent or opaque layers create a natural, painterly look.
Brushing out: Lay down a design with Supracolor water-soluble color pencils, apply a layer of Pablo on top, then work over the subject with a moist brush to bring out the design again.
Bundling: Draw with several color pencils held together.
Decoration: The covering capacity and brilliance of Pablo permanent color pencils achieve their full effect on various types of paper and other materials.
