Introducing the all new SoHo Professional Colored Pencils
"Developed by Artists for Artists"
If you’ve received the latest Jerry’s sale catalog, or browsed our website recently, you may have noticed a brand new product that we are very excited about! New SoHo Urban Artist Colored Pencils have recently come into stock, after months of research and development, working with artists to discover exactly what they wanted from a top-of-the-line colored drawing pencil. See Demo Video Below
Most of the artists polled requested the same qualities: vibrant colors, high lightfast ratings, smooth consistency, minimal hazing, layering capabilities – all at a reasonable price! Working in conjunction with Cretacolor of Austria (European drawing pencil manufacturers extraordinaire), SoHo developed this new line of artists’ colored pencils to meet or exceed every demand. Finally, a high quality artists’ colored pencil at an incredible value!
Each SoHo Colored Pencil is highly pigmented for rich, brilliant colors; and the high to excellent lightfast ratings means those colors won’t fade and diminish over time. The balanced, 72 color range is available both individually and in convenient sets, with shades ideal for any drawing subject ranging from detailed portraits and sweeping landscapes, to still life drawings, illustrations, abstract art or even just sketches! Sets are available in hinged-lid tins perfect for storage and travel – get the full set of 72 for the most flexibility, then replace your favorite colors as needed from the open stock selection.
The consistency of SoHo Colored Pencils is also a treat: smooth, buttery, and blendable, each stroke glides across the paper, with none of those hard bits and scratchy spots you’ll stumble across in other colored pencil lines. SoHo Colored Pencils also use less wax in their binder material, meaning that hazing (that foggy, whitish film that sometimes creeps across a colored pencil drawing that has thicker or heavier color layers) is less of an issue than ever before! So layer away, blend shades, and lay down thick areas of color without worrying about hazing!
What with their superior pigments, high permanence, and smooth consistency, SoHo Urban Artist Colored Pencils are a truly professional product – and the professionals know it!
Artist and author Kim Maselli says in regards to SoHo Colored Pencils:
“Colors are rich, bold, and very durable; soft enough to blend beautifully, yet sturdy enough that they won't run down quickly or break easily.”
We’re sure that if you give these European-style colored drawing pencils a try, you’ll agree!
