Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencil Sets

The most lightfast brand of colored pencils, that will resist fading for over 100 years!

Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils are widely considered to be the finest professional colored pencils on the market. The vegetable oil-based pencils exhibit a richness of color and smoothness that is unparalleled by any other brand, without the ugly wax bloom that develops with layering, like other popular brands on the market. The 3.8mm diameter barrel houses an SV bonded lead that is both water-resistant and smudge proof, with the bonding providing breakage-resistance with accidental dropping or rough sharpening.

With a color range of 120 open stock colors, 100 of those have a 3 star lightfastness rating (7-8 on the Blue Wool Scale). Why is this important? Until the Colored Pencil Society of America approached the ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials) about developing lightfastness testing for colored pencils, there was not a set lightfastness rating in place for the product. A standard was passed in 2003 and testing began (D6901), and found most brands terribly lacking— most of which did not produce lightfastness beyond 25 years. With 100 colors at the top of the lightfastness ratings, Faber Castell has been dedicated from the start to provide a truly fine art, professional quality colored pencil!

The expanded color range matches both Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils and Polychromos pastels for multi-media techniques. Pencils work beautifully on textured and smooth papers, sanded pastel papers and boards, wood, and even fabric.

Tin Sets -Available in collections of 12, 24, 36, 60, and the full range of 120 Polychromos colored pencils. Perfect as a starter set or as an ideal gift for any dry media artist.

Mixed Media Gift Set - This convenient multimedia set includes 10 Polychromos colored pencils, 2 series 9000 graphite pencils, an eraser and a pencil sharpener — the perfect set for travel or to give as a gift!

Cardboard Set of 36 - This excellent set is tiered in two layers and is convenient for travel. Includes a great range of 36 pencils.

Deluxe Wood Box Set of 120 - This amazing set is perfect for the serious artist and features the entire range of 120 Polychromos colors in a tiered, finished wooden box with brushed nickel latches. Makes a truly luxurious gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't Go Back To Prismacolors! I'd been using Prismacolors for my work, until I discovered they were not lightfast. Searching for an alternative that was lighfast, Polychromos pencils looked very promising. I purchased the 24 set, and will *never* return to Prismacolors. Since Poly's are oil based, they blend wonderfully, with no wax blooming, and wonderful pigment. I also have a lot of fun with them over darker colored art papers-it's nice to experiment! For blending, I either layer the pencils, use a blending stump/tortillion or Mona Lisa brand paint thinner. Adding the paint thinner allows you to layer colors over it even better too. Now, some people feel that the white in the Poly line is not pigmented enough. To this, I would say it depends on the paper used, but in general, it isn't as strong. This would be my *one* exception, adding Prismacolor's white pencil in some small areas, over the Poly one. For anyone who is serious about their color pencils, and wish to offer lasting years of worth to their finished pieces, these are strongly recommended! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wWonderful! Love these pencils! I do a lot of colored pencil work and was looking for something that blended better....These are an oil based pencil, as opposed to wax, and the difference is really apparent! I got the 120 set and LOVE them...but still want more colors!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: Amazing I bought the 60 color tin set, and I immediately fell in love with them. The Polychromos went on very smoothly. Mixing and layering the colors were no problem with these pencils. I had some trouble with layering Prismacolors because of its wax-based core. There were so many wax build-ups whenever I layer Prismacolors. I can only layer about 5 layers of colored pencil with Prismacolors, while I can layer twice as much with Polychromos because Polychromos does not have the wax build-up. Of course the layer also depends on the quality of the paper; I used the same paper for both pencils, and thus the testing is credible. Polychromos, being oil-based, does not the wax bloom. That is a huge plus compared to the constant wax bloom of the Prismacolors. In addition, Polychromos are much more lightfast than the Prismacolors. Sanford, manufacturer of Prismacolors, ceased their line of lightfast Prismacolors that complied to the ASTMD6901 and the Blue Wool Scale. They stopped their production because the high-quality pencils that complied to those scales were more expensive, and thus less people purchased those. Their selling dropped. Sanford, consequently, cancelled their high quality lightfast pencils that complied to the ASTMD6901 and Blue Wool Scale. That just proves that Sanford rather focus on the numbers than the quality. Many of my Prismacolors broke upon purchase;however, that was not the case with the Polychromos. My Polychromos never broke even once. I constantly had to sharpen my Prismacolors to half of their size because of the constant breakages and the lead being off-centered. Also, my Prismacolor lead fell right out of the wood casing before. Polychromos did not have these issues because their leads are centered and the leads are bonded to the wood casing. I have dropped my Prismacolors a couple of times before, and there were always internal breakages. Polychromos did not have any internal breakages when I drop them. Do I have any negatives? Yes, Polychromos does not have as many colors as Prismacolors. I wish Faber Castell makes more colors. However, because Polychromos can layer better, I can create more colors than what I can buy with Prismacolors. The only issue is that I do not really know how to create more skin tones like the ones I have in my Prismacolor set.
