Holbein Coloured Pencils


Only 131 of the 150 full set of Holbein coloured pencils are acceptably lightfast - either a two or three star rating, and this is the complete list of those colours. The marked (*) ones are the ones I have. The email I received from the manufacturer, indicated that the reason they aren't available in Canada (yet!) is that they haven't yet received a license to do so - something to do, I think, with some of the pigments used in their making. They are working on it, though. That'll be a monumental relief to anyone looking to acquire them who doesn't either want to spend a month's rent to get them, or doesn't have a buddy travelling to Japan who can pick up a set (or open stock) and bring them back. I have found a seller on eBay from whom you can buy open stock (which I have, so I know it's legit as far as that goes; and they apparently offer some sort of discount on bulk orders, but I haven't inquired about that yet) (reds, blues, greens, blacks/whites, violets, yellows) (or by set), but they're about $5 to $6 each. The charts on each of the linked pages for the open stock, give the lightfastness of each pencil.
