And The Colored Pencil of the Year Award Goes to...Polychromos Color Pencil!

For the second year in a row, our Polychromos Colored Pencil has received the Colored Pencil of the Year award from COLORED PENCIL Magazine! Polychromos artist’s color pencil has earned its reputation of best of the best and can be defined by its name Polychromos, meaning “many colors.” Available in 120 colors, there is no limit to where these color pencils can take you.

What makes Polychromos so special? The answer is found in the development. Made from premium cedar wood, Polychromos is comprised of vegetable oil, wax, and high-quality pigments. These qualities give the color pencil a buttery smooth color laydown and can be easily blended for layered effects, highlights, and transitions. With a 3.8 mm break-resistant lead, this pencil is also water resistant and smudge proof.

In their second annual Colored Pencil Awards, COLORED PENCIL Magazine subscribers voted for their favorites across nine categories including favorite Artist, Drawing Surface and YouTube Channel. Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees and a HUGE thank you to everyone who voted for us!
