Cretacolor AquaStic Oil Pastel Art Set

In 1790, Joseph Hardtmuth (1752-1816) discovered that a mixture of graphite and clay produces pencil leads - a discovery that was the very foundation of a company that's been producing pencils for more than 200 years. In 1997, the Austrian company sold their production facility to another family equally dedicated to the high quality of fine art products. Today, the company now known as Cretacolor produces many traditional and innovative products for young artists and serious artists alike. From pencils, leads and charcoals to their unique graphite monolith, graphite water-soluble pencils and an exceptional range of water-media products, Cretacolor continues to present fresh ideas to the world of art.
