Product description

Faber Castell Pitt pastel pencil sets are made of the finest materials and are part of unique colour matching system that encompasses all Faber Castell art and graphic products. The colour selection in this range places a particular emphasis on the muted shades and earth tones that are especially important for pastel drawing.

The compact pastel lead produces plenty of colour without being used up too fast which makes the set economically sensible with the highest quality results that is great for both hobby painters and professional artists alike.

Buttery smooth lay down provides excellent colour opacity and enables you to blend for layered effects highlights and transitions. The Pitt pastel pencils are ideal for drawing lines hatching very fine colour transitions as well as for shading larger areas. It can be recommended to use the Pitt pastel pencils in combination with traditional pastels to add elaborating details to the piece.

The Pitt pastel pencils contain the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed light fastness which makes them extremely resistant to fading and ensures the colour of your drawing does not change appreciably when fixed. Fixing the drawing is essential after it is finished with as the Pitt pastels have wax free leads which means your drawing can be wiped.

The pencils are housed in California cedar wood casing which together with the SV (secure all) bonding ensures the lead strength and prevents breakage without a compromise on the sharpness of the fine lines and point retention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich colours and a pleasure to use I've been toying with the idea of Pastel pencils and these are wonderful. They work on a variety of paper, are brilliant on white but the effect on black or toned paper is amazing. They are rich and lovely to use. Wouldn't be without them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pencils Great pencils with a lot of pigment, when using the black it feels like you are using charcole, with not very much pressure. You can layer the colours well to create a realistic effect of whatever you may be creating!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I haven't used them much yet but they look good to me, and are better than the blocks of pastels where your fingers get covered in dust.
