The selection of 12 colours in this assortment is based on the Adolf Hölzel 'Double Primary’ system. The 3 primary colours, each in two shades, offer a wide variety of tints.

Museum Aquarelle colour pencils are developed and produced in Caran D'Ache's Geneva workshop, in close collaboration with master watercolour artists. Their extra-fine quality makes them perfect both for watercolour painting and for artistic drawing. They are 100% water-soluble and have a high pigment density. These extra-fine quality pencils possess an optimal transparency with no veiled effect. Applied either wet or dry, Caran D’Ache pencils have an exceptional colour lightfastness.

Review by Minna Mäkinen
These pencils are delicious. Sturdy, lightfast and the pigment really does behave like real watercolor. You can even go back and fix some errors with rewetting the pigment. The assortment boxes are perhaps a little expensive so I buy only singles. The pencils have the color code at the end of the pencils which are colored with the lead color. However the pencils don't have the color names on them. This can be rather annoying when making color charts. You constantly have to refer to the color chart for the actual names of the shades.

Trying unsuccessfully to find replacement for Schwann stabile soft colour watercolours and these seem the best substitute so far - not quite as good but Ok (Posted on 11/11/2014)
