New from Palomino Blackwing is this pack of 12 Blackwing Colours pencils that glide effortlessly across the page. They come in a sturdy box with a viewing window, magnetic flap closure and protected with a foam insert. Complementing the classic Palomino Blackwing graphite pencils, these colour pencils are designed for people seeking a creative balance away from the daily grind.
Each Colours pencil features a specially formulated soft and extra-smooth colour wax core designed specifically for colouring inside - or outside - the lines. The pencils feature the same comfortable semi-hexagonal barrel found in the original Palomino Blackwing graphite pencils, and an attractive metal cap that adds a bit of weight, giving the pencils a balanced feel. Made of genuine incense-cedar in Japan, each pencil has a lacquer finish that matches its wax core, and a crisp silver imprint. Colours include: Black, Blue, Brown, Green, Light Blue, Light Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, Silver and Yellow.
Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, Palomino Blackwing was launched by California Republic Stationers in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing pencil that was favoured by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Frank Lloyd Wright.
