New Art Supplies from Faber-Castell

Faber-Castell: Makers of Fine Art Materials since 1761!

For centuries, artists have depended on the high quality pencils and art supplies from Germany’s leading pencil makers, Faber-Castell. Now Jerry’s Artarama is pleased to be carrying even more fine art materials from this world-renowned brand!


Castell 9000 Jumbo®

Faber-Castell‘s highest quality graphite pencil is now in a larger format. The Jumbo Castell 9000® has a larger barrel and lead diameter. The thicker pencil is well suited for simple sketching, large layouts and drawing on canvas.

How is the Castell 9000® Jumbo different?

The Castell 9000® Jumbo boasts a greater differentiation and contrast between the shades of grey. The hexagonal pencil barrel creates an easy grip, and each pencil is coated with an eco-friendly, water-based varnish.

Faber-Castell pencils are known for their break-resistant leads from the SV bonding done in the manufacturing process (the lead is glued to the entire length of the barrel). As a result, the thick 5.25mm leads of the Castell 9000® coupled with the SV bonding creates a superior break resistance.


The Castell 9000® Jumbo is much larger than the average pencil, and is suitable for those who constantly find themselves sketching a large piece of work with a small pencil. The new voluminous graphite tip offers a variety of line widths, and the side of the tip is suitable for shading or blocking in large areas.

The Faber-Castell difference: The Castell 9000® Pencil was created by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905 as a testament to Faber-Castell’s highest standards of quality, technology and tradition. The pencils have superior leads made of finely ground graphite and clay. Never scratchy, these smooth, pure graphite pencils are available in 5 degrees (HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B).

Graphite Aquarelle

The new Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle features high quality, water-soluble graphite pencils in five grades: HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, and 8B. All Graphite Aquarelles are made of finely milled graphite for a smooth glide.

Benefits of the Graphite Aquarelle:

  • Boasts a greater differentiation and contrast between the shades of grey
  • Will completely release for the perfect wash
  • The hexagonal pencil barrel creates an easy grip, and the thick 3.3 mm leads are SV-bonded to resist breakage
  • Each pencil is coated with an eco-friendly, water-based varnish


The Graphite Aquarelle is ideally suited for watercolor painting, preliminary sketches, and mixed media projects. This versatile Graphite Aquarelle pencil can be used wet or dry; a wet brush can be brushed over a sketch for a beautiful effect, or alternatively, it can be used to draw on wet paper.

Available in a blister card set or a box of 6 (one grade per box). For inspirations and techniques, watch the Graphite Aquarelle video.
