Col­ored Pen­cils

Annie's Coloring Pages - - Coloring Tools -

Col­ored pen­cils can vary sig­nif­i­cantly from one brand to the next, so un­der­stand­ing lead types will be help­ful as you select a prod­uct that will en­sure the best re­sults with your col­or­ing ad­ven­ture. Col­ored pencil lead is a mix­ture of color pig­ment, wax and fillers. Ba­sic col­ored pen­cils typ­i­cally have less pig­ment and more wax and filler, re­sult­ing in a lead that is quite hard. While you can still achieve very nice re­sults, the color with these pen­cils will not be as in­tense as with artist-qual­ity pen­cils, which have a higher ra­tio of pig­ment to wax and filler. The lead in the higher qual­ity pen­cils is there­fore softer, mak­ing it eas­ier to ap­ply and blend color.
