Derwent Procolour Pencils
The coloured pencil artists among us at Pullingers are exited about Derwent Procolour Pencils. These professional coloured pencils are a revolutionary addition to any artist's toolkit. The oil based lead of these pencils allows for smooth blending, with a texture similar to wax but with the smoothness of an oil.
One of the standout features of Derwent Procolour Pencils is their strong lead, which can be sharpened to a fine point for precision drawing. The softness of the colours makes them perfect for layering and blending. We are impressed by the minimal dusting, which keeps your work clean and smudge-free.
The range of 72 rich and vibrant colours are all highly pigmented, with a high lightfast rating for 90% of the colours, scoring 3-8 on the Blue Wool Scale. Derwent Procolour Pencils offer a versatile range of colours suitable for any project.
What we love most about the Derwent Procolour Pencils is their versatility. They blend beautifully with Derwent Blender Pens, paper stumps, or Zest-It Pencil Blend Medium. You can also use them on a wide range of paper surfaces, but for the best results, we recommend using them on smooth artist paper such as Bristol Board for fine detail drawing. If you plan on doing a lot of colour layering, then a Heavyweight Medium Grain Cartridge Paper is a better option.
Overall, we highly recommend Derwent Procolour Pencils to any artist looking for a high-quality, versatile coloured pencil. Their smooth blendability, vibrant colours, and strong lead make them perfect for any project, from detailed drawings to mixed media artworks. These pencils are also vegan friendly and made in Britain, making them an excellent choice for socially conscious artists.
