I love the Faber Castellated color pencils. The colors are really beautiful and creamy lay down.
Wish I'd bought these sooner
from La Crosse
I just love my new pencils. I started making card 4-5 years ago and I bought Prism's. Between the broken lead when sharpening to the wax bloom I was looking for a pencil that gave me a better finished card. I asked the paper craft forum I belong to and people recommended these.

It is the first time I use oil-based colored pencils and I can feel the difference from wax-based, I am very happy with my choice.
The best colored pencil I have ever had

This is a very smooth and sturdy pencil with a very wide range of color choice. The best I have used in all my years.

These are some of the best pencils I've used, you can layer layer and layer more, without your paper becoming a wax sheet!

Polychromos colored pencils are part of a unique color-matching system that
defines Faber-Castell Art and Graphic Products. Barrels are premium California cedar
wood and the 3.8 mm leads are break-resistant, water-resistant, smudgeproof, and
provide permanent rich color. The binder is oil-based, not waxy. Each pencil features
the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed resistance to fading. Color lays down smooth and is
easily blended for layered effects, highlights and transitions.
