These solid graphite crayons are perfect for sketching, layout work and shading large areas. The hexagon shaped crayons measure 12cm long and 12mm in diameter, and have a removable paper wrapping. The water-soluble variety may be used with a brush and water for monochromatic watercolor effects and are non-staining and erasable when dry.*
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Combining the brilliant intensity of pen and ink with the versatility of line and wash, this pencil can be used for dry rich intense color or washed out with a little water to create a vivid translucent effect. The rich pigment extends further than traditional watercolor pencils, and is more opaque for true ink effect. Once dry it is permanent, allowing for artwork to be washed over with other media without bleeding.

Cover large sketching areas quickly, variegate tone subtly like watercolor and more with this innovative product. Derivan Liquid Pencil allows artists to create authentic graphite pencil effects and pencil sketches using a liquid. It has been formulated to be easily thinned with water or acrylic painting medium and to allow artists to apply the softest of colors with a brush, nib, or other art tools. Due to a precisely balanced formulation, the permanent liquid pencil will burnish up in a similar manner to traditional graphite but it will not smudge. The rewettable formula allows artists to remove areas using water in a manner similar to watercolor techniques or with a traditional eraser. Both formulas are available in a variety of shades of graphite color.
