Caran D'Ache Neocolor® II Aquarelle - Watercolour Crayons, Water-soluble Pastels ... set of 40 colours. Watercolour paints in stick form!

The Swiss made Caran D'ache Neocolor II Water-soluble Pastels are softer than coloured pencils, denser than children's wax crayons, rich in pigment and colour, and extremely responsive to a wet brush or splash of water.

Wet and dry techniques can be combined in the same drawing, layered over and under each other, in almost any combination. These beautiful watercolour crayons have excellent coverage on both light and dark surfaces.

Caran D'Ache Neocolor® II can be used for a wide variety of visual arts techniques ... drawing, colouring, painting, blending, using wet or dry, work on most porous surfaces (paper, canvas, cardboard, wood, leather, fabric, stone). Use as traditional watercolour or gouache paints, coating, glazing, scraping, soaking, ink-wash, monotype printing, making backgrounds, blending rainbows, and much more.

These beautiful colourful sticks include a handy portable storage tin so you can use them at home, in the studio, at work, while travelling, in front of the telly, sitting at the local park - anywhere. Pair them with a refillable waterbrush (aqua brush) and watercolour paper (both also available, sold separately) for a relaxing session creating colourful art.
