Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils are world renowned and made to the highest quality. Their soft and waterproof waxy leads are smooth and resistant to smudging. Each lead is richly pigmented and is break resistant, meaning that they can be sharpened to a very fine point, which enables the user to cover extended areas completely with colour.
