Irojiten Pencils, 30 coloured pencils, Part 1 - Rainforest


This is the first of a three part colour pencil set from Japan entitled “Irojten” which roughly translates as “Colour Encyclopaedia” or “Colour dictionary”. Each set, containing 30 pencils, has been sophistically and thoughtfully designed to contain the necessary palette of colours to capture the essence of a landscape. Part one, containing volumes Pale Tone 1, Vivid Tone 1 and Deep Tone 1 represent the colours of the rainforest.

Together with Part 2 and 3, altogether 90 pencils, one should have all the subtle colours of the natural world.

These artist quality pencils are manufactured by expert Japanese pencil maker Tombow using high quality pigments and wood. They sharpen beautifully, are low in wax content, for maximum colour and a creamy feel.

Part one includes 30 pencils, as pictured here.
