Offering a World of Colour with Lyra Colour Pencils
Did you know? The use of colour pencils can be traced all the way back to the Greek Golden Age?
There are pencil brands and then there are the top pencil brands and Lyra pencils sit right up there. This brand really know their pencils with a few different rangers under their umbrella they have a pencil for everyone. They have Lyra Giants, which are excellent for kids exploring the world of colour. These pencils have a thick natural timber hexagonal barrel and are great for little hands or people who don’t have much control over their fine motor skills. The pencils are designed so that they won’t roll off the table and the leads are almost break-resistant. Lyra Giant pencils come in all the standard colours and some metallic and neon colours. These pencils are not only popular among teachers but are also a favourite among kindergartens and pre-schools. Then we have Ferby art pencil brands, which are a triangular chunky pencil. These too have an extra thick lead and are almost break-resistant. Ferby pencils are all about finding the correct grip with littlies and again people that find holding a pencil tricky. These pencils make finding a three-point grip easy. Both the Lyra Giants and Ferby brands are popular with Steiner schools; they give great colour coverage without the use of much pressure. It is believed that Lyra pencils can last three to four times longer than the average colouring pencil, which means they are very economical and need less sharpening.
The next tier is the Lyra Rembrant collection. Rembrandt Polycolor artists’ pencils are one of the highest quality pencils available in the art supplies market. Rembrant also da a Aquarell range of water soluble pencils. Lyra Polycolour artists’ pencils are available as singles and in tins these pencils are a favourite among adults, especially people who enjoy adult colouring books, architects, fashion and graphic designers, illustrators, artists and crafters. The quality of these coloured pencils is seamless and can be compared to other top brands such as Faber-castell Polychromos and Prismacolors. From my own personal experience I have sold smaller tins of these pencils and people have been so happy with the quality that they have come back for larger ones. The colour range consists of 72 rich and vibrant colours. Apart from being used on paper and card Polycolors can also be used on synthetic materials, textiles and timber. If you want to add some regular pencils to your Rembrandt Polycolors they also do a range of beautiful sketching pencils.
