Albrecht Durer Watercolor pencils contain rich, high-quality pigment with unparalleled lightfastness. Application is smooth and buttery, whether working wet or dry. When brushed with water, the pigments dissolve completely for effortless color blending. The watercolor becomes permanent when completely dry and additional layers can be applied without dissolving dried layers. Each pencil is pre-sharpened and SV-bonded, with thick 3.8 mm leads encased in premium California cedar wood. These pencils are break-resistant and maintain an excellent point. Set of 12 pencils.
