Colored pencils may just be a fond childhood memory for many people but the Lyra 'Colorstripe' pencils aim to help you experience colored pencils again. The quirky colored pencils make the medium cool again by adding a bold flair. Each pencil features its color by completely exposing it. Instead of sheltering the lead in a shell of dull wood, the Colorstripe places it out in the open.

In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the pencils are also extremely functional. The ergonomic shape allows for users to draw comfortably. In addition, the exposed lead makes shading infinitely easier.

If you're worried about durability, you can relax. The lead is waterproof and breakproof. There is also a clear coat of lacquer that guards the lead until you need to use it.
