These pencils are pure color. Each one contains five times more usable pigment than an ordinary watercolor pencil. And all are coated with lacquer to last longer. Combine the soft flowing effects of watercolor with the clear sharp detail of an artist's pencil. Brush pencil sketches with a wet brush; draw directly on wet paper; or dip in your pencil in water and start painting as you draw. Perfect for professional, aspiring enthusiasts, and beginners looking to enjoy new levels of creativity. This package contains 24 woodless watercolor pencils.
