Welcome to dickblick
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.
Pencils are manufactured with extra-thick 3.8 mm leads that are break-resistant and fully water soluble. These leads provide sharp, fine lines and superior point retention.
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.
Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Pencils are available in 120 brilliant colors that are part of a unique color matching system that encompasses all Faber-Castell art and graphic products. Match the color index numbers of any two Faber-Castell products for color compatibility. Use them with other Faber-Castell pencils and drawing products in mixed media projects.

Excellent WC Pencils!
from Downers Grove
I love the Faber Castell line of products and how the colours coordinate across the lines! The pigment is rich with or without water application and is happy to apply direct to surface or by pulling off with s brush.

Wonderful Watercolour Pencils
from Deception Bay, Queensland, Australia..
First time user.. So much easier than conventional watercolour.. Very pleased with finish.. Have been using Polychromos for a number of years... Now have a great alternative..
from Wesley Chapel FL
These are the best water color pencils I have ever owned! But then again I would expect nothing less from this company. I also have the full set of the polychromos, which are just as wonderful. I am working my way to the full set of these now as well. At first I thought I would just buy the darks of each color family, but soon found out I loved these so much and they blended so well I just had to have them all. As a comparison I also have the Prima full set and have used Kohinoor, Crayola and some lower brands. I did not like the Prima at all and ened up giving them to my 10 yr old daughter as well as giving the others to my 6 yr old son. Over all I dont see me buying any other brand of pencil as I love these that much. As a side note in case this is important to you. Once these are down and wet they do not lift back off the paper if you make a mistake or go outside the lines. So be prepared for that.
Great quality WC pencils
from Traverse City, MI
My Go-TO for watercolour pencils! This brand will not disappoint, and having the ability to buy one color at a time is great!
Nice application of color wet or dry
I tried these and liked them so much that I bought a bigger set. Kudos to Blick for selling these individually, since I am sure I will be buying replacements from them for the colors that I use a lot of. I also use Derwent regular and Inktense pencils which I love, but although they give great, intense colors, I like having a selection of lighter colors as well as the terrific range of greys. These are also a bit softer than the Derwents.

My first set of real water color pencils
By Steve M
from North Caentral Indiana
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.
