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").
Creative Art Box
Packed full of colors and charged with creativity, the Neocolor II Creative Box by Caran d'Ache enables artists to work their magic anywhere. This highly original travel set holds an assortment of 15 Neocolor II watersoluble artists' crayons in a distinctive metal box, a travel brush with a water reservoir, and 12 pre-printed FCS-certified watercolor postcards. The cardboard case, inspired by a traditional letter envelope, was decorated by a Caran d’Ache artist. The Creative Box lends itself to original artwork or personalized correspondence. Its compact size allows it to slip easily into a backpack, portfolio, or even a handbag.

Caran d/Ache works for messy me
from NE MISS
I am just too uncoordinated to keep from making an absolute mess of everything with soft pastels. I am elderly and have a bit of a hand tremor but using the Caran d'Ache in conjunction after with a wet brush works grandly for me. I just wish I were financially able to purchase one of the 40 crayon or higher sets. But being retired and living in a retirement facility keeps me on a strict budget.
Great color! Easy to Use.
Love the ability to use these on my mixed media projects. Really gives some great color and so easy to use.
Rich Creamy Color
By Middle School Art Teacher
from New Hampshire
The colors are very rich and blend seamlessly. I work with middle school students and they are much more manageable than the chalky pastels or oil pastels(though pricier, for sure). I also used these as an"ink" surface on wood blocks for printing by applying the color where I wanted it on the block and then wetting my printing paper. You can get a multi color print without using multiple blocks. Very satisfying.
from Southwestern Iowa
I watched the videos and tried each technique and all had beautiful results. The colors have a great range of values.

I use this in my art journal. I love how diverse it is, how easily it blends and how beautiful the pigment is.
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. Watch this video to see this unique artist crayon in action.
