Woodless Watercolour Pencils in Distress colours - Black Soot (charcoal black) and Picket Fence (white) ... by Tim Holtz and Ranger. 2 (two) woodless watercolour pencils, one of each colour, approx 5" long. 

The solid water-reactive pigments are ideal for painting, colouring with or without water, doodling, shading, drawing, stamping, stencilling, sketching and more! Colour and use as regular colouring pencils or use with water, inks, other paints, blending fluid or mediums, the choice is your's. No rules, create art your way and enjoy every moment!

Tim Holtz Distress Watercolour Pencils are watercolour sticks of highly pigmented watersoluble pencils (without the usual wood casing), each around 5 inches long (13cm) - they look like crayons but are actual artist quality pencils. These Distress Pencils are formulated to achieve vibrant colouring effects on porous surfaces like paper, card, fabrics and more.

About the Pencils and Storage Tin ... each woodless pencil is 5" long, 8mm wide. They fit most good quality pencil sharpeners that fit wider pencils (we stock the Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener, sold separately). Each pencil is cased in paper printed with a natural wood or timber pattern and the colour name marked in clear type. The metal storage tin is 6 3/8" x 4 1/2" x 9/16" deep, with a clear acetate window, a removable reusable clear plastic sheet and a black removable tray insert. The lid is not hinged, enabling you the flexibility to use it as a separate palette or place to put pencils, so they don't roll off your table. On the back of the tin is a printed colour palette.

Use pencils to colour in, draw, stamp, stencil, scribble, doodle, paint, collage, create in any way you wish, as well as over other Tim Holtz Distress essentials including Distress Ink, Oxides, Sprays or Paint for more creative possibilities. Coordinates with the Distress colour range.

Another way is to colour with watercolour pencils is to colour onto your craft mat then blend with water using a waterbrush or paint brush. This creates a puddle of Crayon Paint :)
To use this puddle of colour ... Swipe or press your paper through (as we do with Distress Inks) or use your favourite art tools to pick up the colour - paint brush, finger, ink blending tool, gel printing plate, rubber stamp, brayer (roller) or other marking tools. 

Save your shavings in an empty Distress Paint Palette (also available, sold separately) so you've got a tray of watercolour paints in your favourite Distress colours! Add white or black to create even more tones :) Add 1-2 drops of water with a pipette or eyedropper (both available) to turn shavings into paint which dries out to use another day :)
... These ideas are from Tami Bastiaans (using a Distress palette) and Cheiron Brandon (who uses empty paint pans). Big thanks to Tim's team of creators for their inspiration and encouragement!
