Discover the process behind creating Faber Castell’s quality colored pencils, carefully crafted to best serve the vision of the aspiring and professional artist. Providing quality color pencils is a craft we’ve mastered and have been dedicated to for hundreds of years. Born from wood growing in our FSC certified forests, every step in the manufacturing of our color pencils promises a quality result.
Understanding the best paper to use for art is crucial to the quality and success of your work. The paper you choose affects how your medium of choice will perform. Watercolors and color pencils both have a specific paper designated to enhance and protect the qualities of that medium.
Faber-Castell’s collection of colored pencils coincides with our passion to support your creativity at every age and skill level. That is why we created our Polychromos artist’s color pencils and Goldfaber color pencils in our Art & Graphic and Creative Studio lines. Every colored pencil of ours is manufactured for exceptional performance with high-quality pigments and SV bonding but hold their own unique build and qualities.
Faber-Castell offers Albrecht Durer Artists’ watercolor pencils and Goldfaber Aqua watercolor pencils. Both watercolor lines are created to capture your creative visions but have a few differences in their design and delivery. Regardless if you create your art on a hobby or professional level, watercolor pencils are an excellent tool to express your artwork in a unique way and bring your colors to life!
One of the many reasons we at Faber-Castell are proud of our Pitt Artist Pen collection is the versatility it provides, all while delivering a high-quality result. With every line drawn in reliable and richly pigmented India ink, the result is unmatchable. Add texture, density, and more personality into your work by practicing different techniques. Whether it be hatching, compressing, or highlighting, incorporating these drawing techniques will add the perfect finishing touch to your image.
