How the Colored Pencil is Made:

Early man expressed himself with his drawing tools. Over the years drawing tools have been modified, refined and reinvented. The pencil has evolved from a piece of colored rock or a charred stick to today’s myriad offerings. The pencil’s function is to encase the "part that marks" and keep it from getting all over your hand as you use it. Just walk through an art store or office supply store to enjoy all the variations.

It’s fascinating to look at how the colored pencil is made — from its separate ingredients and elements to the finished product, boxed and ready for the retail shelves.
