    General Information

    Extra-thick colored pencils. With large diameter for extensive color application

    These comprehensive artists' colored pencils from the Austrian pencil factory Cretacolor contain extra-thick leads with a diameter of 6.4 mm and are thus predestined for opaque and large-area work. The large diameter allows a softer consistency of the lead, which in turn promotes high color intensity and a soft stroke. The leads are highly pigmented and have a slightly waxy and rich color application. The colors can be mixed or painted over so that layers of color can be worked with, and they can be combined with other materials. Available in sets of 12 or 24 shades.

    The mixture makes the color

    The production of colored pencils is a science in itself and correspondingly complex. Of course, the pigments are the be-all and end-all, and the manufacturing intensity depends on the way they are processed (their decomposition) and the quantity added. In other words, a high pigment content does not necessarily result in a high color intensity if the pulping is poor.
    The color smear on the paper is determined by the binder content in the lead, the type of fillers and colorants, and the proportion of waxy components. Finally, the lead diameter also plays a role: leads with a small diameter require more binder for greater breaking strength and therefore appear somewhat harder when drawing. Leads with a larger diameter allow a softer consistency (i.e. less binder), which goes hand in hand with a high color intensity and soft stroke. So-called hydrophilic or lipophilic additives (water- or fat-loving additives) determine whether a color is watercolorable or permanent.
    All these parameters - type of pigments and additives, proportion of binders and lead diameter - also affect the resulting color. The color palette of our colored pencils and watercolor pencils therefore turns out quite differently.
