CRETACOLOR MONOLITH AQUARELLE COLORED PENCIL SET OF 12
This set of twelve bright and beautiful solid pigment pencils pack a triple punch. Use them for fine or broad drawing, then just add water (carefully!) to blend with the subtle power of a watercolor artiste.
A solid cylinder of water-soluble pigment wrapped in the thinnest lacquer coating, the Aqua Monolith Pencil delights artists with its ability to create broad and fine strokes with a single pencil. Virtually waste-free, Aqua Monolith’s shavings can be dissolved in water and used as paint.
