Lightfastness Rating is mentioned after the colour name and see notes below
Procolour pencils are a new range of artist quality colour pencils for all drawing techniques. In test’s we have found the colours vibrant, with a smooth laydown, easy to build up with the creamy wax base and the bonus of strong points when sharpened. You can colour mix with layers, blend with burnishing technique or use odourless solvent. Minimal dust and smudge-free qualities are also advantages of Procolour pencils.
