5x Derwent Watercolour Pencils

Derwent Watercolour Pencils are the perfect introduction to watercolour pencils. Enjoy a watercolour painting effect with the precise control of a pencil which has been manufactured with high quality pigments for superb colour purity and lightfastness.

The soft, smooth texture of Derwent Watercolour Pencils lays down colour beautifully when they are used dry and makes them easy to layer and blend. To create a watercolour painting effect, use them wet or apply water on top of your dry colour to blend your layers.

There are many ways to use them wet. One technique is colouring on a separate piece of paper and wetting it down, getting pigment onto your brush and painting it on your page like a regular watercolour paint. This will be a very light application, but can be made darker with less water. The next technique is dipping your pencil in water and drawing it across the page. Remember to let your pencil fully dry out before putting it away. You can also touch your wet paint brush directly to the lead of the pencil and paint directly onto the page from there. Also remember to fully dry the lead when finished.

Ideal for painting, drawing and mixed media, get the best results from your Derwent Watercolour Pencil by using medium-heavy weight drawing paper or watercolour paper. They are not permanent when dry, you can easily reactivate the colour by rewetting your layers.
