Every colourist knows about the iconic 120 piece pencil set from Castle Arts – these premium quality pencils have quickly become favourites with artists all over the world. Now Castle Arts have revealed their new range of Castle Gold pencils, and we’re so excited to get our hands on them!
Castle Arts is the home of top quality colouring supplies including pencils, pens and paints. Their classic range of pencils already offer rich, velvety leads and creamy coloured cores for easy blending and stunning colours.
Reviews claim that the pencils “glide” across the page, and that they are long-lasting with good pigments. The original set of pencils is priced at £49.99 for the 72 piece set, and £69.99 for the 120 piece set on the Castle Arts website.
But the new Castle Gold pencil set is designed to be an upgrade to the original Castle arts pencils. Formulated with oil for greater hardness, the pigmented core is encased in fine-grain basswood for a longer-lasting point and greater resistance to breakage.
The new set has also been through “rigorous” testing by the in-house artists and experts at Castle Arts.
These premium pencils are priced at £64.99 for the 72 piece set, and £94.99 for the 120 piece set. You can browse the Gold range now on the Castle Arts website.
“The new Castle Gold pencils are oily rather than waxy. The pigment of the colour is really vibrant and lays down easily. You can layer the colours when doing fur and also blend smoothly for skin, leaves, clothing etc. I loved using them so much I bought a second set!”
