Derwent Procolour Pencils
Derwent Procolour Pencils are professional coloured pencils with an oil based lead for smooth colour blending. New for 2017, these pencils have a texture like wax but glide like an oil.
The strong lead can be sharpened to a fine point for precision drawing and colours are soft making them excellent for layering and blending. Minimal dusting keeps work clean and smudge free. Procolour Pencils combine the best qualities of Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Derwent Artists Pencils.

What is the best paper for Derwent Procolour Pencils?
You can use Derwent Procolour Pencils on a wide range of paper surfaces, but for best results, we recommend using them on a smooth artists’ paper such as Bristol Board for fine detail drawing.
If you are going to be doing a lot of colour layering then a Heavyweight Medium Grain Cartridge Paper would be better.
Derwent Procolour Pencils are suitable for a wide range of drawing techniques including mixed media. They are vegan friendly and these high quality artists pencils are made in Britain.
Professional artists have praised the Derwent Procolour Pencil range for its strong point, vibrant and smooth colours, colour-mixing and blending and layering abilities.
