Derwent Pastel Pencils have the same expressive qualities of Derwent hard pastels in a more controlled pencil. These professional-quality pencils are ideal for use as an individual medium or for detailing in combination with pastel work.
Naturally water soluble, they complement the pastel blocks perfectly without the mess. They have a soft, powdery texture for a soft, velvety finish and are ideal for mixing and blending. Each pencil is tabbed with its color and is pre-sharpened for immediate use.
Pastels are usually all about getting your hands dirty but not with Derwent Pastel Pencils. The wide colour strip is powdery and soft so mixing and blending is really easy and because it's encased in wood you get the pastel effect without the mess (if you can resist using your fingers to blend!)
The smooth, round barrels are 8.0 mm wide and made from California incense cedar wood which combines maximum control with ease of use to create the best drawings and sketches.
Set of 72 comes in a beautiful tin to protect your pencils.
