The buttery smooth color laydown offered by Polychromos pencils can be easily blended for layered effects, highlights, and transitions. Their break-resistant, water-resistant, smudgeproof 3.8 mm leads are encased in premium California cedar with Secureall bonding to resist breakage while providing sharp, fine lines and permanent, rich color. Pencils are pre-sharpened.
Every pencil contains a lightfastness (light resistance) rating, as follows: ***very good (100+ years), **good, or *reasonable.
