What makes these watercolour pencils special are that they are WOODLESS (aka made of PURE PIGMENTS) which makes it PERFECT for using with water brush calligraphy!
The key components of the Progresso Aquarell coloured pencils are rich, top quality and perfectly dispersed pigments carefully selected and purchased from renowned producers around the world.
Their light permanency and dosed concentration also influences the final result and durability of the artwork. Therefore a high concentration of dosing of pigments has been prescribed for this product in its entire colour range.
Another important component is white clay, usually bleached kaolin of the highest purity and fineness. It gives our coloured pencils, together with the addition of binders and other additives, an unsurpassable ability to make a unique stroke on the paper or other medium. Another important agent of the formula ensures the excellent solubility of all the components.
The aquarelle technique can be achieved even with a few drops of water distributed by a fine brush, brushed OVER the exposed pigments OR using the shavings.
