The composite lead automatically shades the drawn line without the necessity of rotating the pencil around its axis. Already a small shift in the drawing angle will change the diversity of colours. To achieve a shading effect you just need to use one drawing instrument and shift the angle of its tip to get the desired effect. The special composition of the lead allows a smooth transition from one shade to another within one drawing line, thus creating a 3D impression. Even a beginner can draw like a professional artist with these Magic coloured pencil. Comes in a plastic tub of 30 or a blister pack of 5.
