Albrecht Dürer Watercolour Pencil Sets
Albrecht Dürer artists' watercolor pencils provide artists with great versatility of expression when drawing, shading and painting in watercolors. The colored surface can be transformed with only a few fine or broad brush strokes to reveal the full and unique power of the pencil's vibrant colors. Depending on the paper being used, the pigments can be completely dissolved, and will then behave in the same way as classic watercolor paints.
These pencils contain high-quality acid-free pigments in bright colors with unsurpassed lightfastness. The thick 3.8 mm leads are housed in premium California cedar wood casings with SV bonding to strengthen lead and resist breakage. Pencils come pre-sharpened and protected in strong metal tins. Made in Germany.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
