How did I NOT know this about Faber-Castell?!
Recently, during one of our Facebook and Youtube live events as I was testing and reviewing a set of Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils by Faber-Castell, one of our viewers commented that the pencil colors in this set matched those of the Polychromos. And not just the Polychromos colored pencils, but the Pitt and Goldfaber products as well!
Well this started Steve and I down a path into Faber-Castell to see just how far they had taken this color matching system, and to see just how well the colors matched from brand to brand. A shopping spree ensued and a couple hundred dollars later we had in our possession some Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils and Markers, Pitt Artist Brush Pens, and some Goldfaber Colored Pencils. I already had the full set of Polychromos Colour Pencils.
Here’s what we discovered about these amazing Faber-Castell coloring products…
