In the spring of 2020, everyone’s favourite paint marker, POSCA, expanded its range to offer its fans a complete creative art suite. POSCA brought the brand’s superb colour, durability and quality to two more new artists mediums; pencil and pastel.
Carefully curated sets
Now we are launching carefully curated six and 12-piece pencil and pastel sets, with specially selected colours chosen with creativity in mind.
POSCA pens users can have fun and try something new with these new packs. Encased in plastic free packaging, the new sets give artists and crafters a great value entry point to start their POSCA PENCIL or PASTEL journey. Both POSCA PENCILs & POSCA PASTELs have the same quality you’d expect from POSCA, boasting amazing longevity, usability and, naturally, fantastic colour range and coverage.
Packs created with artists in mind
The packs offer a range of colour options to choose from, encompassing a whole colour spectrum from bright and punchy to deep and earthy. POSCA PENCILS are available as seven six-piece packs and four 12-piece packs, while POSCA PASTELS are available as three 12-piece packs.
The colours selections have been carefully curated for various uses. Beginners who want to dip their toes into the water may opt for the PASTEL Essential 12 piece set as illustrated above. Or perhaps try the bright and vivid six-piece Essential pencil pack shown below. Both feature go-to colours that can be used on a wide range of projects and are a great introduction to our PASTEL and PENCIL ranges.
If you want to go a bit deeper, we’ve got that option for you too. For example, landscape and nature artists will love the Terra 12-piece POSCA pencil collection pictured below or Neutral Pastel pack.

A pleasure to work with
Both mediums have employed the same innovation and attention to detail that artists have come to know and love from the POSCA brand. POSCA PASTELs are have been developed with the artist in mind. Their unique formula contains more wax than oil, so colours are vibrant and true with a super smooth finish. This also means they are remarkably clean to use, leaving hardly any residue on the page.
POSCA PENCILs contain more oil than wax, making the colours ultra deep, punchy and vivid. Their innovative construction means the pencils are sleek and easy to use, sharpen like a dream and don’t crumble or break when a heavy pressure is applied.
The artist quality POSCA PENCILs have six levels of intensity and convey a deep, rich concentration on the page. POSCA PASTELs are ergonomically designed so they are easier to hold, giving the artist more control. Plus their slim body allows them to be given a super sharp point with a pencil sharpener or blade
Tried and tested techniques
Because POSCA PENCIL & POSCA PASTEL have been constructed with creativity at their heart, both mediums allow the artist to explore a wealth of tried and tested techniques. POSCA PENCILs are adaptable; they look great on light and dark papers, as well as wood and card. POSCA PASTELS can be used on a range of surfaces; check them out on wood, glass and fabric as well as on pastel board and paper.
