This pack of forty-eight colouring pencils from Faber-Castell are a magnificent choice for beginners or intermediate-level artists. They are often used at home and in the classroom to enable students with the development of their understanding of colour and art techniques. The pencils are suitable for use on everyday papers or card stock and can also be used for colouring books.
Key FeaturesEach pencil in this pack is produced from FSC Approved wood, designed to protect and sustain the forests. They feature a traditional hexagonal shape, filled with colour-rich leads. The leads are specially formulated with anti-break technology, allowing you to add more pressure than standard colouring pencils. With forty-eight individual colours included, there are no limits to the kinds of designs or illustrations you can produce.
When working with colouring pencils, it's often best to begin with lighter colours first. This is because it's much easier to blend and layer dark colours on top of lighter colours. It also helps to develop your understanding of how colours change when you layer them together. Another great tip is to study 'The Colour Wheel', which is an understanding of which colours are next to each other on the spectrum. This will enable you to know which colours blend well together, and which colours contrast each other. This is a technique often taught to students, which helps with much more advanced techniques as your understanding develops.
