Swisscolor water-soluble pencils from Caran d'Ache are our most popular watercolour pencils for beginners and professionals alike. They have a very smooth colour laydown that has good amount of pigment and the activation with water is very easy making them a joy to use. They are perfect for drawing, cross hatching, gradients, colouring and watercolour effects. The entry level price point and wide colour range make Swisscolor pencils a great choice for everything from adult colouring and mixed media, to A levels and fine art.
Each pencil has a hexagonal barrel (made from premium, FSC certified cedar) varnished in the same colour as the core and a 2.8mm break resistant water-soluble lead- for a good point every time and very high colour consistency.
