Welcome to dickblick
Glorious colors produce clean, smooth, vibrant lines that blend just like traditional colored pencils. Just add water and a brush to create beautiful watercolor effects. The ergonomic triangular-shaped barrel contains a soft-grip zone for your drawing comfort.
Draw on wet paper or dry colored areas to add detail, drama, and interest. The color is acid free with good fade resistance, and the 3.3 mm lead sharpens easily with all standard pencil sharpeners. Pencils are pre-sharpened.
Glorious, permanent colors are packed into a portable tin, ideal for sketching both indoors and outside.

These pencils are too hard and frustrating to use.
from Fairfax, VA
Comments about Faber-Castell Art Grip Aquarelle Pencils:
Used these pencils with a group of adults and they all stated that they could not get the desired effect because the lead was too hard and did not soften with use. Unfortunately I bought 2 sets that will go unused. Very disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great product, I honestly didn't know watercolor pencils existed until I went on YouTube and seen people drawing with them. I would highly recommend this product. I always get a fast delivery when I order from Blick, I be expecting the product in a week and a half but I usually get it the same week. Thanks Blick

I would recommend this product!
from Concord, NC
I am teaching myself watercolor and this is the best way to start for me, I love these pencils and they are quite wonderful. I actually started out with one that I bought at a local art supply store and I fell in love with the flow of it so I ended up buying the set :)

The best colored pencil I have ever used
from Warner, NH
These water color pencils are so vibrant and rich in color. Go on smooth and blend beautifully when adding water. I use them for my mixed media projects, to color in stamped images and to color in my drawn faces. Perfect flesh tone colors, they make my images just come to life. I highly recommend these colored pencils, already have a couple other brands, these are by far the best. Dick Blick selling them for a fabulous price. The only down fall, when sharpening the pencils, I hate wasting those little specks of rich color.

Love these pencils!
from Madison, MS
This is my first experience with watercolor pencils, and I love the effects I can get: light color, more saturated color, and the effects of different amounts of water. A fun new medium for me!
Awesome, But bit pricey
By Cherry Summer
It's really nice, I love and the only thing about this is that it's a bit pricey but I still gave it 5 Stars because the colours are so wonderful and I bought a 12 pack just for fun and to colour becsaue I don't usally paint water colour it's usally just sketching and drawing/colouring! So this is a nice experice for me! Bravo! Faber-Castell

These are a nice product, I gave the smaller set to my 8 year old granddaughter, and then had to figure out, from a myriad of papers, which paper would hold up to water application, and not cost an arm an a leg. I would recommend that the Seller include recommended papers alongside the catalogue description of this product.

Solid middle class
from Hyvinkaa, Finland
These sons of Faber-Castell Goldfaber come in 36 colors. They feel quite similar to Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürers and that's very nice indeed. Caveat: there are only three browns and two grays, so drawing dinosaurs can get difficult!
