Whether you’re a superstar doodler, pro sketcher or a budding Da Vinci you might have picked up a Derwent Graphic Pencil recently and noticed something slightly different about them and you wouldn’t be wrong.
So what’s new? The first thing you notice is the design and packaging. The fantastic artwork of Alexis Marcou now adorns the Graphic tins alongside a sleeker more contemporary branding on the cases and the pencils themselves.
But it’s much more than just a styling tweak, the whole pencil has been looked at and developed for improved performance. Those boffins at Derwent have decided to improve the graduation through the 20 grades of Graphic pencil even more by using only using pure graphite and no pigment what so ever. This really makes the colour laydown smooth and your mark making easier than ever. Erasing mistakes feels smoother too and scratching of the surface is no longer a problem. By only using pure graphite the core strength of the pencils and the breaking points of the tips are enhanced which in turn means a longer life for the pencil, your pencil sharpener and of course the pennies in your pocket. If you have really done your research you might have heard of the blue wool scale, this test measures the lightfast and permanence of colours, with grading from 0 and 8. These Derwent Graphic pencils have come top of the class yet again with a score of 8 so your hours of artistry won’t fade before your eyes anytime soon.
