Watercolor Pencils

Goldfaber Aqua Watercolor Pencils are an exciting and enjoyable medium. These intensely pigmented pencils offer the ease of sketching combined with the ability to produce stunning watercolor painting results as well.

There are a few interesting ways to use them. The most basic way is to draw and color in pencil and then activate the paint within the pencil with a wet brush, instantly transforming your art into a vibrant watercolor painting.

Another effective painting technique is to create a paint palette by scribbling spots of color onto a piece of scratch paper. You can then pick up the pigment with a wet brush and transfer it to your artwork. Mixed colors can also be created by layering combinations of colored pencil scribbles.

Finally, you can paint by simply applying a wet brush to the pencil tips. This method offers a control convenient for small detail.

The Goldfaber Watercolor Pencils are available in several beautifully curated and themed color collections, in tins and sets of 12, 24, 36, 48 and 144.

Watercolor Paint

Adult beginners and hobby artists alike will enjoy these vibrant liquid watercolors ideal for exploring a variety of creative painting techniques.

Watercolors are a versatile medium offering many forms of artistic expression. These highly pigmented liquid watercolors are beautiful right out of the tube and also mix and blend nicely to create unique colors and washes.

To begin, it would be a good idea to get to know the colors by simply experimenting on scrap paper to discover the intensities and shades possible by mixing each color with more or less water. Then experiment with mixing new colors using more and less water. You will soon see a seemingly endless number of color and shade possibilities.

The Creative Studio Watercolor Paints are available in two color collections, in sets of 12 and 24.

Goldfaber Aqua Dual Marker

The unique Aqua Dual Marker offers outstanding versatility, making it ideal for anything from creative hand lettering to illustration. The double ended design offers the advantage of a wide range of techniques– one end is a thin fineliner tip with a line width of 0.6mm, perfect for small details, contours, thin lines and sketching. On the other end is a thick brush tip offering a varied line width of 1mm to 5mm depending on the pressure and angle of the pen in use. Mastering this end of the pen results in a unique painting and drawing style which is perfect for creative hand lettering and much more. The ink is completely water soluble which means that it can be used on its own or with water to create watercolor paint effects.

The Goldfaber Aqua Dual Markers are available in several beautifully curated color collections, in wallets of 6, 12, 18 and 24.

Collapsible Water Cup

The collapsible travel friendly water cup holds 12 oz of water and is perfect for all types of painting projects. An additional feature is the scalloped edge of the cup which is cleverly designed to serve as a built in brush holder, keeping brushes at hand and preventing them from rolling away.

Water Brush

Painting with a water brush can be a fun alternative to the traditional paint brush. The brush is designed with soft durable bristles and holds water in the transparent barrel; the water is evenly and consistently released through the brush tip as you paint. The transparent water barrel makes it convenient to see when it is in need of refilling and is leak proof, making it ideal for plein air painting and urban sketching.

Color Numbering System

A big advantage to all Faber Castell art materials is their standardized color numbering system across both product lines. This allows the color number and shade from Creative Studio products to match the same colors of products in the Art & Graphic line. This is a very unique feature enabling reliable mixing and matching techniques of artists’ materials.
