What was in the box?

Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolour Marker

These Faber-Castell Watercolour Markers are highly pigmented with a lightfast water-based ink. They are dual-tipped markers with a flexible brush tip at one end and a medium bullet tip at the other. The pigmented water-based ink can be layered for a vibrant swatch of colour, or diluted with water to create a delicate watercolour wash. These markers can be used to employ a variety of techniques such as hatching, glazing, wet-on-wet, blurring, granulation, colour spritzing and more. And, as they are water soluble they are great for mixing and blending, to create the perfect colour gradient. These markers are ideal for both spontaneous sketching and artistic watercolour painting.

Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolour Pencil

The Albrecht Dürer Magnus Pencils by Faber-Castell are watercolour pencils with extra thick 5.3mm lead, so they are ideal for covering large areas. They are highly lightfast and create a soft but saturated lay-down of colour. The satisfyingly chunky barrel enables hours of fatigue-free usage. These pencils are enriched with high-quality materials, which are combined with Faber-Castell's experience and expertise in art supplies, to produce unsurpassed watercolour effects. The coloured pigmented colouration can be also be transformed with a bit of water to create a brilliant wash of colour.
