032 Deep Dive Into Polychromos

Topic:  Deep Dive Into Polychromos

 

 

This week Lisa and I talk about one of our favorite colored pencils, Polychromos by Faber-Castell

 

With a name like Polychromos where the name means “many colors”, the pencils are some of the best on the market today.  This pencil line has been around for over 100 years.  

The pencil is an oil based, hard lead, break resistant, water-proof and non-smudging.  The pencil is slightly thicker than Prismacolor Premier and the lightfast rating is signified right on the barrel of the pencil.

They come in sets of 12, 24, 36, 60 and 120.
