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.

Please note: The pencil barrel’s labeling may vary in appearance within sets and individual stock due to a rolling manufacturer design change. The quality and formula of the Polychromos pencils remain unchanged.
