Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils are oil and wax free pencils that are smooth, soft and pleasurable to use. Each pencil has a 4.3mm lead that can be sharpened to a beautifully fine point using a pastel pencil sharpener, making these pencils not only great for large areas, but for finer details too. These blendable colours can be smudged using a finger or a paper stump to transition one colour into another successfully and with ease. As these pastel pencils are very soft, a spray fixative should be used to secure the picture after completion, to help keep your artwork looking exactly as you want it.
Inside this set are 24 Pitt Pastel Pencils which are comfortable to hold thanks to their round design. Each pencil has a high level of professional quality pigment in the lead, making these colours impeccably bright and vibrant, as well as soft and smooth to use.
