Derwent Pastel Pencil has been relaunched with a contemporary new look, softer texture and rejuvenated range of colours.
The new softer texture means improved performance. The pencil glides across the surface of the paper, transferring the colour with a velvety touch that produces a smooth and full bodied powdery finish. It is now easy to move colour around your drawing, especially with the help of a paper stump if you want to keep your fingers clean!
The range of Pastel Pencils has been reduced from 90 shades to a more balanced selection of 72. The vibrant and intense colours blend easily to create an infinite number of hues and tints.
The new pencils sharpen much more easily so you can enjoy the best of both worlds; the beauty of pastels with the precision of a pencil. The barrel coating on the pencils uses environmentally friendly water-based paint technology.
