illi News/10127820

LAKE ZURICH, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Derwent® has officially released Chromaflow colour pencils, formulated with rich pigments to deliver a bold, vibrant laydown. The Chromaflow line is available at an affordable price in sets of 12 and 24 and can now be purchased at, Blick Art Materials ( and on Amazon.

Chromaflow colour pencils have a wide spectrum of rich, highly pigmented colours delivering a smooth colour laydown, making blending, layering and shading easy.

While inferior pencils can break, damaging artwork, the premium core strength of Chromaflow pencils (3.5 mm core) can handle pressure when sharpening and in use. As each pencil is made, glue is applied to the entire length of the pencil slat, keeping the core in place and leading to less breakage and a more enjoyable creative process.

Crafted by Derwent in its U.K. manufacturing plant, Chromaflow pencils reflect a rich heritage of quality craftmanship dating back to 1832, with each pencil checked for colour accuracy and consistency before leaving the plant. Whether you're colouring, sketching or free drawing, enjoy beautiful, reliable results from professional artist-quality Chromaflow colour pencils.

"As an industry-leading art supplies brand, Derwent is continually focused on developing high quality art products like Chromaflow colour pencils that bring innovation and creative opportunities to our consumers at an affordable price," says Anna Clarke, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing, Fine Arts and Crafts. "Although Chromaflow colour pencils are perfect for artists of all levels, we are excited to be releasing this range at a time when things are opening up again and budding artists are finally heading back to school."
