100% Lightfast Oil-based Coloured Pencils
After extensive research & development, we are proud to introduce our new collection: Derwent Lightfast pencils. Derwent's first oil-based coloured pencil, 100% lightfast and with a smooth texture that is a real joy to work with. Try it for yourself: we think it's our best range yet!
The revolutionary core is resistant to prolonged colour change ensuring artwork will not fade for up to 100 years under museum conditions. Derwent Lightfast pencils are oil-based, smooth and creamy with a beautiful laydown of rich colour. What's more, they can even be used with a medium giving a painterly effect when dissolved.
The thick core gives a dense colour application which brings vibrancy to any drawing. Available in a range of 36 lightfast colours, artwork created will remain lightfast for up to 100 years under museum conditions. All colours comply with international lightfast testing standard, ASTM D-6901, and tested in Arizona, US.
We commissioned award-winning US artist, Jesse Lane, to design the awe-inspiring eye you can see on our new packaging! Download the Derwent Lightfast leaflet here.
