PITT pastel pencils have wax-free leads; drawings can be wiped just as with pastel crayons, so need to be fixed afterwards. The 60 bright colours contain a high proportion of pigment; they are highly light-fast and do not change colour appreciably when fixed.
The compact pastel lead is perfect for hobby painters and professional artists, because it produces plenty of colour without being used up too fast.
Neat fine work with PITT pastel pencils
The wood-cased PITT pastel pencils are clean to handle. The practical pencil form is easy to control, even for beginners to pastels.
PITT pastel pencils are particularly suitable for lines, hatching, and very fine colour transitions, but also for shading larger areas. They are useful for sketches and studies, portraits, still lifes and landscapes.
The ideal adjunct to pastel crayons
In combination with traditional pastels (e.g. POLYCHROMOS artists' pastels) PITT pastel pencils are excellent for elaborating details. Highlights and shadows can be added to a drawing with a pencil of slightly different shade. Particular details can be emphasized to attract attention.
PITT pastel pencils therefore offer many creative options, both alone and in conjunction with other material in FABER-CASTELL's Art & Graphic range.
Information for sharpening: PITT Pastel pencils should not be sharpened with a sharpener, but with a special sharpening knife in order to avoid breakage of the relatively soft lead.
