Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils offer artists great versatility of expression in the making of watercolor painting. High quality materials, along with over 250 years of experience, have resulted in pencils that produce watercolor effects with unparalleled vitality. The color surface can be transformed with just a few fine or wide brushstrokes to reveal the unique power of colors. Depending on the paper used, the pigments can be completely dissolved, and then behave in the same way as classic watercolor paints. The paint becomes permanent when it dries, allowing other layers of color to overlap without causing it to dissolve again.
