Koh-I-Noor® Polycolor® Pencil Set, 72 Assorted Colors in a Tin
Polycolor is a professional-grade line of pencils that uses Koh-I-Noor’s proprietary blend of oils and premium pigments in every color core. The result is an ultra-smooth lead that allows for rich color and laydown without a waxy bloom or wax build-up that prevents layering. These pencils create dense, even strokes without the use of heavy pressure. The 3.8 mm lead diameter is an added artistic value to these pencils allowing for shading with a broad edge, or fine sharpening for detail work. We use California cedar for all of our artist-grade colored pencils. California cedar is not only a renewable resource but is regarded as the best wood for pencils because it doesn't warp. Each core is perfectly centered in its casing for even sharpening, and glued throughout to prevent breakage. The end result is a water-resistant, non-toxic pencil that layers and blends beautifully without a waxy buildup.
