These Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils provide a smooth finish of conventional pastels without the mess, and work well on dark or light mediums. Thanks to the diameter of the lead, 3.8 mm, this product provides excellent artistic potential for all users. Noble wood, from which the pencil is made, allows simple sharpening and therefore it is possible to draw even very fine details with the pencils. They are therefore suitable for detailed drawings. These pencils are lightfast, fade resistant and highly blendable. They are rich in pigment for deep shading. They are used for lines, drawing, toning and colouring. Set contains 24 coloured pencils in a metal tin.
