Caran d’Ache Luminance Colored Pencils


These high-end artist pencils combine the smoothness of a permanent lead with excellent lightfastness. Every shade has been formulated using finely ground pigments chosen for their purity, intensity, and resistance to UV rays.

Strong coverage and extreme softness enables subtle blending and gradations and beautiful color even on Bible paper. Pencil bodies are made of environmentally friendly California cedar, and have the color noted on the endcap. They come in fancy boxes with foam as protection, or you can purchase a pencil case for them.

These aren’t for the budgetary faint-of-heart, but they are delicious. A set of 20 pencils is $54 – you can also purchase just a few favorite colors as a treat.
