For the first time ever, with Museum Aquarelle, the Maison Caran d'Ache offers professional artists the possibility of wielding a pencil with the strength and effects of genuine watercolour. This fantastic medium is perfect for works intended forexhibition, collection and museum purposes.
The softness of the lead in addition to its large, 3.8 mm diameter mean that Museum Aquarelle pencils can be used in a number of ways – both dry and as watercolours. From precision drawing to wet drawing, blending, mixed, gradation or overlaying techniques: artists now have the ability to achieve the entire spectrum of watercolour effects. A palette of 76 colours springs to life through contact with water and with textured paper.
Museum Aquarelle colour pencils are designed and manufactured in Caran d'Ache's Geneva workshops in line with the Swiss Made quality label and with eco-friendly standards and certifications.
