Soft leads write smoothly and lay down vivid colours, which are easy to blend, layer and shade. High quality and thick lead core guard against frustrating breakages during general use and sharpening which ensures they are long-lasting.
When applied dry, these genuinely versatile pencils work like a traditional coloured pencil but add a drop of water and you will create a reaction that leads to dramatic results. Combine the control of a pencil with the beauty of watercolour. Use a wetted pencil tip to create rich textured lines. Or use dampened paper to obtain bright colours with soft edges.
