The Lyra Colour Giants Skin Tone pencils are the perfect addition to any portraiture artist's palette. Each has been specifically designed to mimic the most common skin tones. The lead is virtually unbreakable, while the pencils’ hexagonal shape ensures a comfortable grip and stops them from rolling off desks. The rich colour is thanks to highly pigmented lead which is water and smudge proof.
The wood in the pencils comes from sustainably managed forests.
In 1868, Germany’s Johann Froescheis II registered the brand LYRA, making it one of the oldest pencil brand trademarks in the world. In the early 1900s, the LYRA company was producing roughly 1,000,000 individual pencils per week, making it one of the oldest and most prolific pencil manufacturers in the world.
Today, LYRA is known for wooden high-quality graphite/lead and coloured pencils and accessories which are loved by students and professional artists alike. Their products not only excel in the quality department, they also set a new standard for design, functionality, and resilience.
