Koh-I-Noor Mondeluz 12 Drawing/Sketching/Colouring Pencils Part 2
Part 1 of this series on the Koh-I-Noor Monedluz 12-set can be found Here.
Time to experiment. Straight away I notice the quality with each stroke they have an intense colour which is partly due to what they’re made of. The Koh-I-Noor Mondeluz Coloured Pencils are advertised as having highly concentrated pigments in combination with the use of high-quality kaolin white clay for the core. Kaolin white clay is a super fine clay named after the hill in China from which it was mined for centuries. It was first used for making fine china and porcelain. So there is your fact of the day, I’m sure that little gem of information will come in handy at your next pub quiz night!
Laying down my colours, the blues are really speaking to me and so I’ve pictured in my mind a rather heavenly Italian garden scene with shutters and flowers overhanging. I’m finding the use of blending really easy and the vibrancy standing out when I need it to.
I’m also liking how the pencil doesn’t crumble and disintegrate when I use it, as is the case in some of the other colour pencils I’ve used leaving you to constantly be sharpening it. The Mondeluz holds together a lot more.
Overall I’m finding they are easy to control and the strokes are buttery smooth which is making drawing a real pleasure.
