Posca Coloured Pencils ... set of 36 strong, vibrant colours in compact triple decker storage case with elastic closure - made in Japan by world famous Uni Posca, makers of the POSCA paint pen.

POSCA Pencils are a combination wax and oil-based, richly pigmented pencils in 36 beautiful concentrated colours. They are smooth to use, fade-resistant (lightfast), highly opaque and blendable on a variety of surfaces. Posca pencils write and draw with a smooth and soft application, easily blended and work with other tools like burnishers, blenders, clear blending pencils, oil mediums and solvent blenders.

POSCA Pencils are ideal for beginners and professional artista, colourists, illustrators, graphic artists and journalers - all ages, all abilities! Perfect for drawings, illustrations, colouring, mixed media, scrapbooking, stamping, writing, adding shadows and highlights to artwork, art journaling and more.

This 36 pencil set includes one each of the POSCA Pencil Colors in a durable hard-shell storage case. The storage case is made up on 3 layers and a clear durable lid. Each pencil has been dipped in black with the ends dipped in the colour of the pencil (with a very close match to the actual colour) and the number of the colour is printed on the end. They're pre-sharpened, ready to use straight out of the box.

As you can see from the chart, the colours are beautiful - they're all rich with pigment and blend over and under each other really well. Soft pencils require a lighter touch than harder pencils to get the paler versions of themselves but when you do so, with just 36 colours, you can create an amazing number of other blends, hues and tones. The white is a very clean opaque pencil too, great for using on kraft, black and coloured paper, lightening areas, adding soft highlights and blending other colours together.
