Caran d’Ache Luminance Pencils are the most lightfast of all coloured pencils meeting the highest of international standards: ASTM D-6901.
With solid leads and a wide range of colours created from highly concentrated pigments, they have been made for professional level work. The velvet finish of these pencils has come from two years of technical research which also developed the richness of the shades and allows for overlaying, mixing and gradation.
Caran d’Ache won the innovation prize 2010 of the SMAC (Fair of the creative professions and activities) with its Luminance 6901 colour pencil.
The Luminance 6901 range of artist pencils are also available in a range of different boxsets, catering to every artist and every budget.
