Product Details


Not to put too fine a point on it…this handy set of 12 graphite pencils in varying grades of hardness (set includes: 5H, 4H, 3H, 2H, HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B, 6B and 8B) makes the perfect choice for all artists – whether you are starting out and experimenting with the value scale, or you have a wealth of experience behind you, this set has been carefully selected to compliment your artist toolkit.

We’ve packed plenty of choice into this rather lovely (and durable) tin case, so you can hone your sketching skills using various techniques including hatching, cross hatching, blending, rendering, layering and cross contouring.

Our harder range of graphite pencils will allow you to experiment with lighter, thinner lines (great for preliminary sketches, outlines and getting those major shapes onto the paper) whilst our range of softer value pencils will provide the contrasting darker, softer tones to add real depth and darkness to your work, where required.

Here at Castle Art Supplies, we have strict quality control measures in place to ensure that your pencils are strong, with centered leads encased in top quality Basswood to ensure that they will neither splinter or chip in your hands. We also ensure that the graphite is of excellent quality eliminating the occurrence of scratching caused by impurities in the graphite compound.

This pencil set will compliment any artist toolkit. Beginners will love the careful selection and range that our team have put together while art students and hobbyists will love the value for money and versatility on offer. Even seasoned artists will enjoy the high quality so make an artist happy today and add this cute set of premium sketching pencils to your basket.
