Coloured Pencil Labels

During my time on the Coloured Pencil groups I have heard so many people complain about the branding and name of the pencils being stamped in golds and silvers… extremely hard to read in some lights, very small and when you are trying to find a colour in the wee hours of the morning…. almost an impossible task. Because of this I have created pencil labels. Print them out on a large A4 delivery label, cut them apart and stick them on. So much easier! 🙂

Caran D’Ache Pablo

Caran D’Ache Pablo

Moving up the scale a little more from the Prismacolor and Polychromos, we come to the Caran D’Ache Pablo pencils, Wow what beautiful pencils. I have had the Polychromos, Luminance and Prismacolor pencils for quite a while, and I recently purchased the Pablos to see what they were like, and I have fallen in love.

These pencils come in 120 beautiful highly pigmented colours and they lay down nearly as buttery as the Prismacolors but with the firmness of the Polychromos. The pencils themselves are much thinner than any of the other lines and they are of hexagonal shape so they don’t roll off your table.

Their big sister, the Luminance, in comparison feel very scratchy to me (or at least some of them do). I can see these Pablos becoming my absolute favourite go to pencils very quickly. The next positive to these pencils is no wax bloom. I believe they are a mix of oil and wax, and because of this, they don’t seem to have the same issues as wax based pencils.

On the downside (or upside considering the low number), they do have 6 pencils out of the 120 that are not considered high lightfastness, however, you can get around that by using similar colours from other brands mixed in. I am really looking forward to completing my first piece with these pencils to see how they really lay down and blend.

The Caran D’ache website has this to say about the Pablo Pencils:

The covering power of Pablo colour pencils enables easy usage on a large number of backgrounds, ranging from variously textured paper and cardboard to wooden panels. Shaded, mixed and layered colours express themselves through the thick, velvety matter of permanent pencils.
