Derwent is proud to announce that a further 64 colours in the innovative Lightfast collection have passed extensive ASTM testing, creating the largest range of 100% Lightfast pencils on the market.
The range, which has been available to artists since last summer will see a selection of new colours added to the Lightfast range and beautifully presented in a wooden box – perfect for pencil protection, presentation or gifting.
Featuring a revolutionary, vibrant core that doesn’t fade for up to 100 years under museum conditions, the expansion to the Lightfast range will allow creatives more versatility for artwork that is required to last a lifetime.
Due to its formulation, the oil-based pencil is ideal on black or white paper and boasts a painterly quality, allowing artists to employ a variety of techniques and colours wherever they decide to create.
Alongside an open stock selection of 72 colours and a 72 tin, Derwent are launching two wooden boxes, a 48 wooden box containing and a 100 wooden box containing all colours in the Derwent Lightfast range.
The Derwent Lightfast range will be manufactured in the United Kingdom at Derwent’s state of the art factory in Cumbria alongside the rest of Derwent pencil and colour ranges.
