Albrecht Dürer pencils contain the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed lightfastness. Color laydown is buttery smooth, and blending is effortless when wet. Color effects become permanent when dry.

Leads are housed in barrels of premium California cedar wood with SV (secure-all) bonding to strengthen the lead and help prevent breakage. Pencils are pre-sharpened.

My first set of real water color pencils
By Steve M
from North Central Indiana
Comments about Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Pencils:
The truth is I have nothing to compare this set of watercolor pencils to. I have only had the small and very inexpressive sets that you get from other retailers. So I am in my happy place with these. The sharpening took a try or two to get the feel and touch right, but after that I was good. The way the color lays down is good but will take just a little experience to know what is the amount of color for the effect that I want to achieve. Just need a scrap piece of paper around to try things out first is all. The new product and the new discoveries are just the adventure you wishes for.

I will buy this product again and again.
from Carlsbad, NM
These are the creamiest watercolor pencils I have ever used. I love the fact that all of the color lines disappear when you add water.
I have wanting a set of watercolor pencils for quite a while. I did some research and these came out on top for quality and price! Will be buying from Blick's again!!!

Great selection of colors. For the price, should come with a sharpener, but I know these will be very usable. I like the fact that they come in a metal box to keep them less messy.

I've just started doing some water coloring. I've tried a different brand and was not very happy with the pencils so I decided to try this set. I am very, very happy with them. I am not a professional artist but I know quality when I use it. I would definitely recommend this set for your coloring needs.
Even better than Inktense
By Gratefulgirl Creating
There is no better artist quality water-soluble pencils that remain permanent once dry. I had a set already, but came back to get portrait colors. These are more than worth the cost!
from Orange County, CA
Smooth, vibrant, blends easily. I find nothing to complain about. Very well packaged, nothing was broken.
I do buy this product often but....

I use the watercolor pencils to color my artist books. The colors are vibrant and there is a great range of pigments. My only concern is the barcode sticker gets in the way and sometime jams up my sharpener when I sharpen the pencil. This can easily be remedied by you placing it at the other end of the pencil.
I will most definitely invest in more of this product

Pencils are silky smooth going down on paper, blend nicely and blend with water like magic. SO much fun to use. :D
