Welcome to dickblick
These professional-quality, water-soluble pencils offer the artist the freedom to switch from drawing to painting in an instant, with no change in tools. Use them to shade on dry paper, then quickly wash over with brush and water to get a blending effect.
Use wetted paper for intensified colors with softened edges, or try wetting the pencil first for rich, textured lines. Each pencil is pre-sharpened and has a 3.4 mm diameter color strip.
Hardwood Box Set of 72
This set of 72 pencils comes in a hardwood case.

Very nice Pencil Product!
from Chicago, IL
I recently decided to test the Derwent Watercolour Pencils as I'm looking for lightfast Pinks and Purples. I was pleasantly surprised at this brand for dry work too. While it has a chalky feel to it, it performs well and blends nicely in dry form with both oil based and wax based brands. I will be adding more to my sets!
Wasn't perfect but customer service was superb!
from Newport, OR
All was fine upon opening the package but, when I went to use the white pencil on a picture pink was the color I got. I tried sharpening to no avail...there was a streak of pink throughout the middle of the white. I called Blick customer service and was immediately assisted by a very nice woman. They are sending me a new white to replace the pink.

Beautiful assortment of colors
from Dallas Oregon
enjoy working with them
Glad to find gray watercolor pencils sold individually!
from Bermuda Run, NC
I use it to sketch on canvas, walls, anything I am going to paint on with acrylics. It can be wiped off if I change my drawing. I have looked many places for individually sold watercolor pencils and have not found them. I ordered French gray watercolor pencils individually, and I love having some spares. Thank you. I will definitely shop here again.
Excellent product and service.

I can hardly wait to work more with this product.
from Albuquerque, NM
I'm new to using watercolor pencils. I bought these to use in painting en plein aire. Have not experimented enough to have a solid comment. The times I have used them, they did not seem to dissolve completely, leaving pencil marks on 140 Lb cold press.

The Best Watercolor Pencils
By Hairy Larry
from Wirtz, VA
I have used Derwent Watercolor Pencils on smooth bristol paper, handmade rag paper and Aquarius II watercolor paper, and was able to get them to perform well with each. My only complaint has been that an on-line art supply house shipped individual pencils to me in a soft pack and one of them was completely broken in two.
