Complete List of Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencils

I am so excited to write about Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencils today.  Polychromos colored pencils are exceptional. 

Here is the complete list of the Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencils with Hex and RGB codes.

The list contains the color name and the color number. Polychromos colour pencils have a number associated with each pencil. This is a great idea because it is much shorter than the colored pencil name and can be a great reference when coloring. The * refers to the colorfastness; *reasonable lightfastness, **high lightfastness, and ***maximum lightfastness.

One of the great things about the Faber-Castell lines are that they are all connected to a color matching system. Ie the markers match the colored pencils. This may be true with other companies, but they do not advertise it. Polychromos purposely names all their products with the same color names. That wins me big points right there. 

The pencils have great qualities also, they have thick lead that is break and water-resistant and have a smooth laydown that is smudgeproof. They also are color fast, ie their colors do not fade as much with time. There are colors that are more color fast than others and will be noted in the chart. Check out this blog post to see the box and all the pencils.


Prismacolor Colored Pencils come in 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 132, 150, 12 Botanical, 24 Highlighting and Shading, 12 Landscape, 23 Manga, and 12 Under the Sea color packs.
