What was in the box?

Marabu Art Crayons

These Art Crayons are buttery-smooth, wax-based soft pastels in a sturdy, fully-loaded retractable holder with an ergonomic grip and a clear protective cap. They are a versatile medium, suitable for a variety of fine art and mixed media work. They work well on raw or primed surfaces such as paper, canvas, fabric or wood. They produce a vivid, lightfast pigment and are water-soluble so can also be used to create seamless blends and washes and are wipe-resistant after 24 hours. These crayons are a highly forgiving art product that you can work with in tons of ways, working and reworking to your creative heart’s content. It is a product that encourages play and experimentation, so you can let your experimentations run a little wild.

Faber Castell Goldfaber Pencil 6B

The Goldfaber pencil is a high-quality, very versatile, graphite pencil with a super soft core, perfect for expressing yourself through sketch. A great addition to your art supply collection and excels with its exceptional sketching performance. The hexagonal shape and the break-resistant lead with the typical Faber-Castell secural bonding process make them an ideal companion during pencil work for any artists. ...and we love that classy purple and gold stripe!

Derwent Kneadable Eraser

This soft and pliable eraser is perfect for erasing as well as lifting out tone and colour. Its use is suitable for graphite, coloured and pastel pencils. It can be used to create a variety of erasing techniques including highlighting, stippling and ghosting.

Royal & Langnickel Taklon Brush

This Royal & Langnickel brush is a high-quality instrument, created with expert craftsmanship. It is suitable for all manner of water-based mediums and is easily cleaned with soap and water to remove any pigment residue, ensuring long durability and reuse.

Derwent Watercolour Pad 300gsm A5

Developed especially for water-soluble pencils, this smooth paper is perfect for water-soluble colour, inks and watercolour paints. The smooth surface also provides an excellent base for the Marabu Art Crayons included in this box. Apply them direct and use the smooth sheets to blend colours together with your fingers, then add some water and put this paper through its paces experimenting with these supplies.
