The diameter or tip size of colored pencils range from standard mechanical pencil sizes (0.5 or 0.7 mm) to lead holder sizes (2 mm and up). Colored mechanical pencil leads tend to be more fragile than their graphite counterparts, especially in the smaller tip sizes. Nonetheless, thin leads are great for writing or drawing small details as they produce a consistent line width and don’t need to be sharpened. Using a light, delicate hand is key when dealing with thin leads.
