Blackwing Colors :: 12 Pack Coloring Pencils

$ 27.00 USD
CA20-103888

Blackwing Colors were designed specifically for coloring. Each pencil is made with Genuine Incense-cedar and includes a unique soft and smooth Japanese wax color core. Each pencil also features the same semi-hexagonal barrel found in our graphite pencils and a metal end cap that adds a bit of weight, giving the pencils a comfortable, balanced feel. 

:: PENCILS WITH HERITAGE – First created in the 1930s, Blackwing built a cult following that included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwing pencils to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters. Discontinued in the 1990s, we revived the Blackwing brand in 2010 for a new generation of artists, writers, musicians, and others seeking a more natural existence.

:: EXTRA-SMOOTH COLOR CORE – Blackwing’s colored pencil set consists of 12 different pencils, each with an extra-smooth Japanese wax color core designed specifically for coloring. The included colors are pink, red, yellow, orange, light green, green, light blue, blue, violet, brown, black, and silver. This pencil set is perfect for people seeking creative balance away from the daily grind. 

:: EASY-TO-SHARPEN CEDAR CASING – These colored artist pencils have a cedar casing made from genuine California incense cedar, which sharpens evenly and easily. This casing is covered by a thick, color-matched lacquer, making it easy to find the color you need. Each colored pencil features a crisp, silver imprint and the same semi-hexagonal barrel found in our graphite pencils.

:: METAL HEX CAP – Blackwing’s coloring pencils are each topped by a silver, metal hex cap that adds a bit of weight, giving the pencils a comfortable, balanced feel. This slightly-weighted end cap is important for artists who need superior control over an extended period of time.

:: BLACKWING GIVES BACK – A portion of the sales from all Blackwing products benefit the Blackwing Foundation, which funds and develops arts and music education at the K-12 level. Your purchase helps provide, among other things, the instruction, learning environment and instruments children need to participate in the Little Kids’ Rock Modern Band Program.
