The extra thick lead cores are extremely break resistant, water resistant, wear longer than standard colored pencils and require less frequent sharpening.

Founded by Hans Stockmar in 1922, first with beekeeping products and beeswax candles, then at the urging of art teachers he developed the modelling beeswax. Over time and with Waldorf teachers, Stockmar created other products, most notably the wax crayon, watercolors and wax decorating sheets.
Today Stockmar products are known around the world for their uncompromised quality and production adherence to high pedagogical, artistic, social and environmental standards. They are regularly subjected to testing by independent laboratories in Germany to insure their safety and purity.
