Water-soluble Sketching Pencils

by Derwent

These pencils have a high quality graphite strip which can be used dry as a traditional sketching pencil or wet when water is applied with a paint brush. They come in varying degrees that allow the artist to create extra tonal dimension--light wash (HB), medium wash (4B), and dark wash (8B).

Water-soluble Sketching Pencils are an excellent medium for line and wash drawings.

Pencils are sold individually, order 12 for a full box

Rated by: Raymond F B. in Mount Vernon, OH
I have been using these pencils now for quite some time and find that I never tire of using them. Whether as an under drawing for a painting or as a stand-alone medium I am amazed at the versatility of these pencils. The gradation of the hue can be dramatic or very delicate making the Derwent water soluble pencil invaluable to this artist.
Rated by: Robin G. in Fullerton, CA
Good, dark rich black when used with water. Fairly easy to control. Nice feel to the pencil. Smooth application.
Rated by: Kevyn R. in Hot Springs, AR
These pencils were new to me when I recently ordered and tried them out. Boy was I pleasantly suprised! I love the slightly larger size of the wood and now I never leave home without them for sketching! Even if I don't use water! I choose the 4B med wash and really love it's graphic potential.

I have been using Derwent's water soluble pencils for over 12 years and I find them invaluable in developing drawings for watercolor, egg tempera and acrylic paintings as well as stnad alone graphic drawings.
Rated by: Charlene M. in Appling, GA, GA
