Each of the 60 PITT pastel pencils contains high quality pigments for outstanding light-fastness. Known for their buttery-smooth color lay down, PITT pastel pencils provide excellent color opacity and can easily be blended for layered effects, highlights and transitions. Their extra-thick 4.3mm leads can be wiped like ordinary pastels. Gentle fixing is recommended.
PITT pastel pencils are housed in premium California cedar wood casings with SV (secure all) bonding to strengthen the leads and prevent breakage, while providing sharp fine lines and excellent point retension.
Each pencil below is marked with stars denoting the light-fastness:
* Reasonably light-fast (colors change in direct sunlight)
** Light-fast (colors may change slightly in direct sunlight)
*** Very light-fast (no color change)
