Faber Castell : Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils

Loading product grid, please wait

Sorry for the delay

Albrecht Duerer artists' watercolour pencils provide artists with great versatility of expression when drawing, shading and painting in watercolours. High-quality materials combined with Faber-Castell's experience have resulted in pencils that produce unsurpassed watercolour effects. The coloured surface can be transformed with only a few fine or broad brushstrokes to reveal the full and unique power of the colours. Depending on the paper being used, the pigments can be completely dissolved, and will then behave in the same way as classic watercolour paints: The paint becomes permanent when dry, enabling other layers of colour to be superimposed without causing it to dissolve again. For this reason, many watercolour artists choose to use the pencils for the fine details in their watercolour paintings, as well as for watercolour sketches while travelling.

Review by Fiona M H
I had previously tried Derwent & Caran d'Ache Museum watercolour pencils and been disappointed. They didn't draw very well dry, and the colour didn't spread well when wetted. These pencils are much superior. Used dry, they are smooth and vivid for drawing and the rich colour spreads easily when wetted. They are much chunkier pencils than the other brands and are very comfortable to hold and use. I've given them 5 stars for being exceptionally versatile for landscape painting, and a good price from Jacksons ! (Posted on 17/12/2016)
