Watercolor Pencils

Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Pencils are a versatile medium, offering the unique combination of the control of you have with a pencil, along with the exciting creativity of watercolor paint.

These premium quality pigments dissolve smoothly with a wet brush or water brush, producing brilliant washes and fine detail, and handle color gradations and transitions with ease. As with watercolor paint, the pigment will also react to various texturizing techniques such as using salt, oil, alcohol, etc.

The highly pigmented 3.8mm leads contain the highest quality pigments of unsurpassed lightfastness and brilliance.

Two watercolor markers

Watercolor Markers

Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Markers offer a beautiful and modern way to create unique artwork by combining marker drawing techniques and painting effects all from one drawing instrument.

Turn your drawing into a painting by starting with a marker, then use a wet paint brush or water brush to spread the color to create rich watercolor effects. Use various techniques, like lifting, blending, and creating delicate washes. Create texture as shown here with salt. The high quality, odorless water based inks have a high lightfastness and will not bleed through most paper.

The marker’s dual end features a brush on one end for creating loose, painterly effects and blending, and a fine tip bullet nib on the other end providing flexibility in drawing styles and detail. Color flow is consistent with 3 weights that can be achieved by the amount of pressure applied.

Watercolors with a blending palette

Blending Palette

The 4x6 inch laminated blending palette is the perfect surface for mixing colors on. Use by simply scribbling onto the palette with watercolor markers, then dilute by using a wet brush or water brush. Clean the palette by wiping off with paper towel or wet cloth.
