The Colour Grip series from Faber-Castell includes a wide variety of pencils designed for young children and aspiring artists. They feature patented 'Grip' technology, which provides a high-quality ergonomic experience. The pencils are superb for use at home or in the classroom, designed for use on everyday art papers, card stock and colouring books.
Each pencil is manufactured from FSC Approved wood, ensuring that the forests are sustainable and protected. They have a triangular shape with small raised bumps on every side, providing extra grip, comfort and control. They are filled with vibrant coloured leads, which are also water-soluble. This means that you can brush over your projects with water to create watercolour effects. This set includes twenty-four individual colours, perfect for colouring or illustrating almost any subject.
We recommend using the pencils on slightly textured paper, which will enhance the blending and colouring properties of the pencils. If you plan to create watercolour effects, it's best to use watercolour papers, which are less likely to warp when damp or wet. A common technique used by artists is to begin your project with lighter colours first, then add darker colours on top to create depth and style.
