1. Derwent Artists Pencil (I bought 41 Colours separately). 

Made in England
Each for Rm5.62.


The smooth, perfectly round barrel of this popular artist's pencil encourages easy movement and expressive drawing.
The pencil's composition is soft but not crumbly, with a slightly waxy texture for easy blending and shading. The 4 mm diameter color strip allows naturally broad strokes and strong lines.
By simply adding more pressure on the paper, color strength can be varied from faint and delicate to bold and intense.
They have a very good review (4.7/5) on
