Different types of wax coloured pencils

Suitable and standard wax compounds in this group of coloured pencils make the colour pigment move and fix better on the support surface. On the other hand, this combination simplifies colour layering and prevents staining of the work surface. Wax-based coloured pencils have many different degrees of softness and hardness based on the 4B or 6B. Note that the use of this category is not suitable for artists who use very heavy tones and dark and warm colours at very high levels in their work.

Because wax is heavy and dark colours, after a while, gives a dull and foggy colour and will lead to a decrease in the quality of your work. For artists who use dark colours in their works, it is more appropriate to choose an oil-based coloured pencil artist.

Oil-based colouring pencils for sketch applications

The second category is oil-based coloured pencils. These handles are different from the wax handles in terms of being fixed on the support, and they do not have the problem of blurring in dark colours. Most oil coloured pencils fall into the semi-soft category and are slightly harder than wax-based pencils. This group has a longer lifespan than the other groups.

Oil-based coloured pencils, on the other hand, are more prone to stains. The eraser has little effect on this tool and is generally very hard to clean. They are more expensive than other models and have many colour restrictions on many brands. Therefore, and according to the mentioned points, this group of pencils like a white pencil is more suitable for very professional people.

Water-based coloured pencils

These coloured pencils are dissolved by water due to the gum used in their production. Due to the properties mentioned in this tool, they can be used to create thinner and thinner layers on the work surface with their find points. In other words, These pencils are the same watercolour that is inside the wooden cylinders in the shape of a brain. This tool can be used in both dry and wet forms. The texture you will get by using this pencil is so similar to watercolour paints.

Using it in dry form is exactly like using the other two pencil models and it is used in wet form like watercolour. The technique of using wet mode is that you can use this pencil to paint on wet drawing paper. Or, just like watercolours, mix some of it with water and apply the colours on the support with a brush.

It should be noted that in addition to the three categories mentioned above, there are two other groups of color pencils that do not officially fall into the category of coloured pencils. Pastel pencils and coloured graphite pencils are also in this group, these tools are usually categorised independently. In the graphite category, some of these pencils are combined with lead, which offers different pigment and shades on drawing paper.

Polychromos means many colours in pencils. The Polychromos coloured pencils were produced in 1908, shortly before the company's 150th anniversary. Faber-Castell pencil is one of the oldest pencil industries in the world. Chromos coloured pencils initially consisted of 60 colors. Today, the colour variety of these pencils has reached 120 colours. These pencils have been used and loved by artists around the world due to their unrivalled quality.

Faber-Castell quality standards have been applied in all stages of polychrome pencils production. Quality materials have been combined with Faber-Castell experience to manufacture pencils with a very break-resistant, light-resistant and fade tip, waterproof and with very vivid colours and texture that do not spread on drawing paper. In addition, these pencils are acid-free and suitable for use on a variety of surfaces. Mixing other colours with a white pencil to create a masterpiece is not a dream anymore.

The oil based coloured pencils can be easily combined to create layered effects and light shadows. It is also possible to combine them with other colours, including wax pencils. The 3.8 mm tip based on their HB(2B, 4B or 6B) of these pencils is covered with the best Cedarwood. These durable tips and fine point are able to draw lines with clear, vibrant and permanent colours. Each Polychromos pencil has a degree of light resistance and fading.

This grade is marked with one or more stars on the pencil. Pencils with the xxx mark (very good) are very resistant to light and their colour lasts for more than 100 years. The rest of the pencils have xx (good) and x (acceptable) degrees. The proven quality of Faber-Castell color pencil as one of the best pencil manufacturers with the seal of approval of most painters who do pencil art is a good reason for people who are interested in professional coloured pencils to choose Polychromos ones.
