In 2010 Derwent re-formulated their pastel pencil. The new formulation features a softer texture for easier transfer to paper and better blending. The pastel 4mm lead is naturally water-soluble. There are 72 unique colors that represent a balanced color range (the previous formulation had pure colors and tints).

The beauty of fine grade pastel within a pencil:

  • Chalky, powder-based, water-soluble pastel core.
  • Add water to create light washes.
  • Suitable for blending, layering and erasing.
  • Create fine detail with minimal dusting.
  • 72 degrees in the range.
  • 87% Lightfast (Lightfast, colors remain the same for 100 years under museum conditions).
