Product Description

Size Name: 72 Tin

The Beauty of Watercolour, The Precision of Pencil

Derwent, with over 180-years pencil making experience, has constantly been at the forefront of developing quality, distinct fine art materials. The Derwent Watercolour range of watersoluble sticks within a wood-cased pencil, offer versatility for bright colours and good wash effects.

Less Mess But Good Wash Effects

The Derwent watercolour pencils eliminate the mess traditional painting blocks create. When mixed with water they create a wide range of interesting colour flows yet aren't as bright as the Inktense range, making them ideal for more subtle paintings. They can be used wet or dry, on wet or dry paper, to achieve a wide variety of effects, including bright colours with soft edges when used on wet paper or rich, textured lines from a wetted pencil tip. Unlike Inktense, Watercolour is not permanent therefore colour can be re-wet and moved around the page as necessary.

High-Quality Blendable Colour

The range can be used dry as traditional colouring pencils offering high-quality colour pigments allowing for intense colour to be created. The pencils are soft in texture therefore easy to layer and blend allowing for interesting colour build up and a wide spectrum of different tones and tints to be created.

Softer Formulation for Easier Colour Transfer

This is the full range of 72 watercolour pencil colours and is set in a metal tin with a removable lid and individual pencil 'slots', meaning pencils can easily be stored and protected. Set in a hexagonal barrel for greater control the colour dipped ends offer easy colour identification. The high-quality watersoluble pencils come complete with a softer formulation meaning the pigment transfers to the paper quicker and easier creating a wide range of exciting effects from bold, vibrant images to delicate watercolour washes.

Accessorise

The watercolour artist pencils work well with the Derwent range of brushes. The Derwent Waterbrush set, with three tip sizes and water barrel with constant flow valve, allow for the wash effects to be brought through. The technique brush set, developed to produce different painting marks, allows for greater creative possibilities. The Derwent Watercolour pads, designed for use with watersoluble media, are ideal for creating and storing work.

Size Name: 72 Wooden Box
Presented in a lovely wooden box with all the coloured pencils you'll ever need. Blend beaufifully together or on their own. Water can be added which makes your picture look as if you have used water colour paint. Great value for your money

Size Name: 12 Tin
I bought these pencils as a present for my 11 year old daughter. She thinks they are cool as you can dip them in water and they turn into watercolours yet easier to control than paints. They are good as straight forward coloured pencils and they don't chip and break like most pencils nowadays.

Size Name: 48 Wooden Box
If it matters to you that these pencils come in a practical, strong good looking box then go for this......although if you wish to carry them around, possibly because you wish to sketch and paint outdoors, it is a little on the heavy side.
As far as the pencils are concerned they are of good quality with an excellent range of colours. Very useful for adding detail to water colour paintings as well as using them mainly as the dominant medium. If you are not familiar with this type of pencil DO obtain instructions on the various ways in which they can be used. The results are good as long as you know what you are doing and DON'T simply dip them into water and try to produce a picture.

Size Name: 72 Wooden Box Verified Purchase
A fabulous set of pencils with a great range of colours to select from, beautifully displayed in a lovely wooden box where your pencils can be permanently organised and protected. However, I have found that the let down is that quite a number of the pencils are continually breaking, which of course results in expensive wastage and disruption to my art sessions. They have been properly looked after, so I am not too sure of they way forward regarding this problem.

OMG I cant describe how lovely the box smells with the pencils whne you first open it, its great quality box and pencils,

They are all held in place by a piece of wood and dont fall out

When I use them the colours are fantastic and enough range of shades to blend well. When you put water on the paper it helps make it stand out better it wont be all wash out like some brands

Size Name: 72 Tin Verified Purchase
I got these so that I had access to the complete set of colours from derwent. It's a compact tin with just enough space to store them all safely without being too large to store. The pencils them selves are of great quality and produce some fantastic results.
A must buy if you like to use watercolours or are picky about shading.

This was a present for my Mother-in-Law. She is really delighted with it. She loves the box that the pencils are stored in and it has given her a new burst of drawing life. It was an excellent present so very happy.
