A proprietary blend of oils, binders, and premium pigments are used in every line of Koh-I-Noor colored pencils. The result is an ultra-smooth lead that allows for rich color and laydown without a waxy bloom or wax build up that prevents layering. We use California cedar for all of our artist-grade colored pencils. California cedar is not only a renewable resource, but is regarded as the best wood for pencils because it doesn't warp. Each core is perfectly centered in its casing for even sharpening, and glued throughout to prevent breakage. Our woodless pencils have a solid color core encased in lacquer, and offers the artist maximum color laydown. All of our pencils come pre-sharpened.
Color Range: 72 Colors
Core: Water Soluble Single Color
The Mondeluz pencil lead is soft and vibrant, consisting of water-soluble pigments. The effect is dense color that lays down easily. Water may be added by brushing over the hand drawn strokes to soften and blur the lines, creating a watercolor paint effect, or the pencil may be dipped in water prior to drawing to create a deep, rich stroke. The precision of the colored pencil combined with the delicacy of watercolor can create stunning effects.
These pencils can be used on a multitude of wet and dry surfaces, such as vellum, canvas, and watercolor paper. Mondeluz aquarells can also be used with other media such as traditional watercolor, graphite, pastel, ink and acrylic paint. The versatility of the Mondeluz pencil makes it one of the most sought-after watercolor pencils for artists and illustrators today.
