Description
  • 100% lightfast – won’t fade for up to 100 years
  • Derwent's most premium pencil.
  • Formulated to be 100% lightfast, pigments are resistant to colour change meaning artworks will not fade for up to 100 years under museum conditions.
  • Tested under the harshest conditions to internationally recognised standards, Derwent Lightfast offers a broad range of colours not seen in other lightfast collections.
  • The oil-based nature of these pencils creates a buttery, velvety texture allowing complete integration of colours for mixing and blending.
  • A pencil blending medium can be used with a paint brush to mix colours directly on a paper or canvas surface. (May affect lightfastness)
  • With an opaque laydown, dark colours applied with the precision of a hard sharp point will sit well over lighter shades for effective layering when outlining and defining negative space.

22nd May 2019 Reviewed by Tracey Letchford Love these pencils. I’m a pencil artist doing animal portraits. They hold a nice point, don’t snap very easily and blend really well. I use pencil blend which they work very well with. Coverage is good and colour from lead compared to end of pencil is quite accurate. Could use more colours. Fab!

3rd January 2019 Reviewed by Stephen Belton This is my first venture into coloured pencils as normally use pastel pencils, mainly for animal portraits.
I found them easy to use plus I was able to get a good sharp point on the pencils using a Derwent super point pencil sharpener.
It’s still a learning curve for me but well worth the money.

23rd November 2018 Reviewed by Angela De Fraine Love these! Best quality colour pencils in terms of how they feel to hold and lay down, blend, and keep sharp points. Great colour saturation. .Quite a few dark, earthy colours, so at present am enjoying seeing what colours I can produce by blending, but eventually will need to use with other sets.
