I just did a video on Instagram unboxing some new products sent to me by Faber Castell Australia to use for this year’s #Colour4Life event. This is an annual competition in Australia with some very cool prizes (see below).
In 2022 I spent two months using the Albrecht Durer Watercolour Markers and the Pitt Brush Pen Markers but this year Faber Castell Australia has sent me a box of new stuff to use for the next few months.
A lovely leather roll with a selection of Polychromos and Albrecht Durer pencils (both of which I love) plus a few graphite pencils. The interesting thing about this selection of pencils is that it doesn’t contain any browns, grey or earth colours (ie. the hues I most use).
Shades of Grey set of the GoldFaber Aqua Dual Markers. I’ve been using these markers for the last 12 months (and love them) but it will be fun to only use the gray ones!
The #Colour4Life Competition …
Create it: Create an artwork using Faber-Castell products that represents what #Colour4Life means to you.
Snap it: Take a photo of your completed artwork.
Tag it: Upload that photo to your Instagram account, making sure you tag #Colour4Life, @fabercastellaustralia & your favourite art store, if they have a social media account.
Find out more here including details of the amazing prizes. Note: this is an Australian competition.
I’m really looking forward to using these new Faber Castell products. Have any of you used the new matt graphite or the pastel pencils? If so I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
