The smooth, perfectly round barrel feels so right in the hand, encouraging free and easy movement and wonderfully expressive drawings. The 4mm diameter lead allows naturally broad strokes and strong lines. Its composition is soft but not crumbly, with a slightly waxy texture for easy blending and shading. By simply adding more pressure on the paper, colour strength can be varied from faint and delicate to bold and intense. Derwent artists pencils combine the craftmanship of the past with the technology of the future. Only the finest pigments are used while modern production methods ensure consistently high standards. The colours are true and the quality always superb.
