Welcome to dickblick
The quality of Neocolor II Aquarelle Artists’ Crayons is universally acknowledged. Their excellent lightfastness, high pigment concentration, and adaptability to a variety of techniques have put them in a class of their own.
Neocolor II Crayons are softer than colored pencils, denser than children’s wax crayons, and extremely responsive to a wet brush. Wet and dry techniques can be combined in the same drawing. Because of their strong pigmentation, light colors cover dark colors and vice-versa.
Neocolors are soft enough to smudge with your fingertips, yet much firmer than oil pastels. Scrape off one or more layers of color to create an engraved sgraffito effect. They can also be combined with Caran d’Ache Pablo Colored Pencils. Best of all, they’re watersoluble.
Individual Neocolor II Crayons measure 105 mm long × 10 mm diameter (4-1/8" × 5/16").

Chalkboard art look buy lasts longer
Used for menu board that can change over time. Allows board to be erased but the words written with these stay unless washed off. Looks like chalk much more so than chalk markers.
The condition that my order was received in was great!
from Washington state
I'm looking forward to using these paint sticks on fabric for quilted items.

Amazing! I will buy them again.
from Pasco, Washington
I had never used these before, so ordered the 40 tin. After a few plays with them, I am going to order the remainder open stock. The colors are opaque and bright, and they blend seemlessly. They are very smooth and creamy and easy to use. I would imagine they would last a long, long time because of how pigmented they are. These are are most definitely worth every penny.
from Burlington, NC
The only bad thing that I could find was I didn't order the whole set. My birthday is coming soon, so the entire set is number one on my wish list. Great to get some color started in pastels and WONDERFUL for art journal.

Excellent Wet of Dry
Wax pastels--how can they be water soluble? I have no idea, but it works really well. You can aplly color with them directly. Or, you can scribble some color on small pieces of watercolor paper and used as a paper palette for watercolor work. You can wet the crayon with a brush and use both the crayon and the water brush. Versatile. That's what they are. I take a few with me when I travel, so I can add watercolor to my journal. No mess, and they last a long time, too.
Excellent Quality Great shipping . Great Service !

Still learning but the pencils work well.

I use them over acrylics, adding depth and doodles to my artwork.
Watercoloring Made Easy
By Sue in Marengo
from Marengo, IL
Ideal for filling in stamps. Just use a water brush. Have not tried for large areas yet.
These crayons are incredibly versatile
from SLC, UT
I bought the largest set for the full range of beautiful colors. These crayons are my favorite water soluble medium, even over watercolor pencils. I typically pick up color from the tip of the crayon with a small wet brush for application and the consistency allows for both fine details and solid fills. It's a wonderful product!
Neocolor II is a water soluble artist crayon made from high quality, lightfast pigments. They are softer than colored pencils and denser than wax crayons. When used on their own, Neocolor II Crayons are smooth drawing instruments great for sketching and filling in large areas. When used with water, they become an intensely vibrant and luminous watercolor paint. They can even be used to draw on glass, metal and other non-porous surfaces.
