The softest ever colour pencil
The softest of pencils but in a strong and vibrant range of 72 colours. The velvety softness of the core releases rich, dense colour at a stroke and is perfect for mixing and blending. Despite its soft texture, Coloursoft sharpens to a fine point and works equally well for detailed illustrations or bold, contemporary still-life drawings and portraiture.

Bold, broad colour at a stroke.
For authentic pastel drawings with quick, easy colour lay down, these chunky pastel blocks are perfect. Their square shape and smooth, semi-hard texture means you can use the ends, sides or edges to produce both broad and fine lines. Although not as powdery as soft pastels, the effect is equally beautiful and the unique colourless Derwent Blending White allows you to blend the colours easily without affecting their density. We sell the 12-metal box set.
