Albrecht Durer #186 Terracotta
Faber-Castell's Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils have smooth leads in vibrant colors that blend easily with water and a brush. It's the convenience of carrying your watercolors in a pencil format. Use the point of the lead to draw finer lines and details. Use the side of the lead to create broader strokes. Then, blend the strokes with a web brush to create rich washes. Leave the strokes dry, without wetting them, to show more texture. Experiment with working the dry leads over damp paper for even more effects. Or use the pencil tips like pan watercolors by working a damp paint brush directly on the pencil tips to pick up color. The choice is entirely yours!
- Lightfastness ratings are labeled on each pencil. Draw with confidence, knowing the fade-resistent of your colors.
- Color codes on Albrecht Durer pencils coordinate with Faber-Castell professional Polychromos, Pitt Pen, and Pitt Pastell color lines. Useful when matching Faber-Castell product colors for mixed media!
- Faber-Castell's SV Bonding is a process of gluing the full length of the lead to the wood casing of the pencil in production. This bonding strengthens the lead and prevents breakage, which allows for better sharpening.
