An artist coloring pencil with a wonderful soft creamy wax-like core. The look and feel of these pencils oozes quality. The round cedar barrel is delightful to hold and the wood is from a sustainable source. The generous 3.7mm core delivers a wonderful lay down of pigment. the colors can be easily blended to produce an extensive palette. Comparable with other brand leaders of waxy pencil these Spectrum Artist Color pencils by Specialist Crafts will not dissapoint. Marvel at their exceptional quality and price and see the difference in the artist's performance.
