Wooden Pencils Top Choice Whether you’re a writer or an artist, the Staedtler Mars Lumograph is an outstanding wooden pencil. The Lumograph has smooth, high-quality lead that stays sharp longer than other pencils. It comes in a range of lead grades from soft 8B to 6H, which artists will appreciate. We recommend using the middle grades, HB or B, for writing. Most Ergonomic Pencil The oversized Staedtler Triplus Jumbo is an excellent pencil for those who struggle with hand cramps. The chunky body encourages a gentle hold, while the pencil’s triangular shape helps maintain a tripod grip. Best Drawing Pencil Uni Mitsubishi Hi-Uni pencils deserve a special place in your art kit. These professional-grade drawing pencils have buttery-smooth lead that is a pleasure to draw with. You might even find yourself drawing more just to use these pencils! Most Unique Pencil The Palomino Blackwing is a pencil with a legendary history. These iconic pencils are known for their smooth, dark leads and distinctive ferrules. The newest addition to the Blackwing line is the stunning Natural pencil. It uses Extra Firm graphite that is similar to HB lead for a smooth and precise writing experience. Colored Pencils Top Choice Whether you’re a professional, student, or hobbyist, Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils will make your project stand out. The soft cores apply smoothly with great pigmentation, and can be blended with ease. Best Erasable Colored Pencils These Uni Arterase pencils are the best erasable colored pencils we’ve ever seen. The firm cores blend well and are vibrantly opaque, and if you make a mistake or want to create highlights, the pigments lift cleanly and easily every time. Best Professional Colored Pencils When only the best colored pencils will do, we reach for the Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. These pencils are made for artists who display their drawings as they have oil-based cores that will stand the test of time. Polychromos pencils are even color-matched to other Faber-Castell art supplies, so artists can easily mix media. Best Watercolor Pencils If you love using watercolors on the go, try the Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils. The highly pigmented cores are wonderful when used dry, but they really shine when paired with water. Draw first with the pencil, then apply water with a brush for intense payoff and smooth blending.
