ColorWare is a company that makes custom-painted Apple products and accessories, and ordering from ColorWare is essentially the only way to get a non-standard color for AirPods, the Apple Pencil, the Magic Mouse, and AirTags.

Occasionally, ColorWare comes out with super fun special edition products, such as the new ColorWare Apple Number 2 Pencil. This is an ‌Apple Pencil‌ 2 that has a black tip, yellow body, painted-on eraser, and other detailing for a faithful rendering of a number 2 pencil.

ColorWare is making a limited number of the Apple Number 2 Pencils, and they're priced at $215. That's an $86 premium over the $129 price tag, but the extra cost is worth it for a unique design that will make your iPad stand out. To get the pencil-like effect, ColorWare has combined matte, metallic, and glossy paints for the pencil, and it comes in a special edition box.

ColorWare has been designing and selling custom-painted devices for more than two decades, and it has perfected the steps needed for a gorgeous, durable finish. ColorWare uses a multi-step coating process that includes a primer, the application of a proprietary color formula, and an X2 liquid plastic coating that protects the color. All ColorWare products are warrantied for 12 months.

I’ve never once felt compelled to take advantage of Apple’s free engraving when placing an online order. The lone exception being my Pencil 2. I couldn’t resist.



That said, ColorWare’s spin is super fun.

funny how Apple (and everyone else basically) went through lengths to do away with skeuomorphism and yet every now and then something like this pops up and everyone's like "oh the nostalgia, gimme gimme" :D


well, it does look nice however.

I have always had my doubts about the durability of their coatings, especially since AirPod cases and Pencils can take a lot of abuse - but that is awesome. Would pair well with Scott Forstall's old skeuomorphic stuff. :p
FWIW I bought a keyboard and trackpad from them 5 years ago and I haven’t seen any signs of wear.

too bad it cannot be used to write notes comfortably, because using it will consume more power than triple A gaming, puncturing holes in your battery charge.
2h of total use in best scenario. 10% battery every 15minutes. write notes yes but only for a short time. for watching videos or browsing, no problem you have time, battery charge will hold for many hours. but writing notes with pencil and your ipad battery will be drained so fast you'll be shocked. as far as i'm concerned until this bug is fixed, using pencil is the shortest way to kill your battery. maybe apple should be busy fixing the truckload of bugs accumulated over the years instead of getting concerned by apparences. having a nice looking pencil is one thing, but what good is it if each time you put it to use you destroy ipad autonomy ?
i mean think about it, that thing will gulps 10% of ipad battery every 15 minutes.

(tested with ipad pro 11" m1 and apple pencil2)
