These Colorista Pencils are wax-based and are for beginners to intermediate users. They're ideal for adult colourists, who now want to move up a step in quality. Whilst still very affordable, Colorista pencils will help the casual colourist to step up a gear. Their quality pigments will give you a more vibrant, clean coverage that can't be achieved with cheaper alternatives. And the colours can even be blended together, giving you the chance to experiment with some new and different effects.
