Derwent watercolor pencils are versatile and professional artist-quality, watersoluble pencils that create a wide range of exciting effects, from bold, vibrant images to soft, subtle impressions. Combining the control of a pencil with the beauty of traditional watercolors, their high pigment content offers exceptional color blend, wet or dry.
Create intense color by applying a dry pencil over wet washes. Make sure you use a blunt tip to avoid surface damage. To produce texture or mottling, scrape flakes from the tip of the pencil with a craft knife, or rub the tip over a sandpaper block, allowing settling and dissolving on a wet area of the paper. Alternatively, flick color off the tip of the pencil with a wet toothbrush. Blend color and create washes by dragging a natural sponge or wet cloth over dry marks. Make sure that you regularly clean the pencil tip by scribbling on dry paper to minimize color contamination.
The pencils are pre-sharpened for immediate use and a color-dipped end offers easy color identification. An ideal gift for the budding art student or the artist in you.
Since 1832, Derwent has been inspiring amateur and professional artists with an exceptional range of innovative fine art materials.
