Faber-Castell Polychromos are high-quality, coloring pencils. The pencils contain a lot of pigment, are very opaque, and easy to blend. The core of a Polychromos pencil is harder than most other pencils. The pencil is popular because the tip remains sharp for a long time, but the pencil is not too hard. It's a wonderful combination.
Faber-Castell distinguishes itself from cheaper brands by producing pencils of professional quality. All Polychromos pencils are colorfast and blend well. Faber-Castell indicates the lightfastness of each pencil with asterisks, *** indicates, for example, that the colors will last for more than 100 years!
