What are Your Favorite Watercolor Pencils?

Recommended Posts

Dolorre

I'm new to doing faceups, and so far I'm using Staedtler Karat Aquarell Premium Watercolor Pencils. I like the pigmentation and the fact they don't break easily, but I'm not happy with the variety. The most I could find was a pack of 60 pencils.

I managed to snag a pack of 72 (Artisto brand) and 120 (Kalour brand) for cheap that I plan on reviewing and comparing to the Staedtler. For anyone who wants budget pencils. 😊

Anyways, here are the questions:
1) What brand of watercolor pencils are your favorites?
2) Why do you prefer them?
3) How's the pigmentation?
4) Do they break easily?

Thought I might chime in on this and see if it helps as I used to horde colour pencils as an animation student 😅

My personal preference so far has been the Prismacolour pencils, but they are kinda hard to find where I am located.
I love them for their pigmentation and how soft they are to work with.... but they can break easily depending on how hard you press them down. Don't oversharpen them too as I find that they are more prone to breakage that way.

Another good choice would possibly be Derwent, but I find that they are not as soft and pigment as compared to Prismacolour.

Hope this helps!
