This set includes an assortment of watercolor pencils that contain the highest quality pigments for unsurpassed lightfastness. The pencils feature a buttery smooth color lay down and are easily blended and layered without waxy build up. The thick 3.8mm break-resistant and fully water-soluble leads can be easily blended when wet for rich watercolor effects and become permanent when dry. The lead is housed in premium California cedar wood casing with SV bonding to strengthen lead and resist breakage, while providing sharp fine lines and excellent point retention. 36 piece set comes in a reusable tin that is ideal for travel, plein air painting, and use in the home, studio, or classroom. This special set also includes a Clip & Go foldable water cup and a short handle watercolor brush.
