Lyra Pencils

Hope your watching the amazingly talented Nikky Hall  on Creat & Craft ,showing you the Amazing Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour oil based range of pencils
 I would like to share Some of My samples with you .. they have all been coloured with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils

The Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour oil based range of pencils have been around for many years and are tried and tested Artist's Quality LIGHTFAST pencils which you will love! They have always been quite difficult to get hold of here in the UK but Premium Art Brands are now the UK Distributor for this great range - and we're here to show you how lovely they are!
The Lyra Splender Blender is reknowned as being the best pencil blender available and is widely used by Artist's with other brands of pencils too...
These great pencils are really smooth and buttery in texture and consistency and offer a fantastic range of bright, vibrant colours which blend really easily and work on a fantastic array of different surfaces. 
They are German manufactured which means superior quality to many other well known brands and being high on the Lightfast Scale means that unlike many other brands you can be assured if you colour an image with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour the image wont be all faded in 2 days from sitting on a windowsill - UBER important to us as crafters! 
The points stay much sharper than many other pencils and they have fantastic quality leads which are water resistant and don't give wax build-up to give you that 'blooming' effect many other pencils are synonymous with. 
Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour will also combine with your other oil-based pencil brands too, expanding the range of colours you might have in your collection.

Thanks for stopping by
I will be back with more samples
Hugs and Happy crafting
