Best Audience or Use: Artists working on paper, Folks who love to color, and Fabric Artists looking for a couple of good marking pencils for light fabrics
I have used my Derwent Watercolor Pencils, 3.4mm Core, Metal Tin, 36 Count (32885) to create greeting cards, color Adult Coloring books and postcards, and sketch and color original drawings. At the 36 count level, there are enough colors to serve a wide variety of purposes. I’ve been moderately successful in blending colors, too, although I’ve found you really need to be careful with how you apply your color for that to work. I’ve also used the light blue pencils to mark light-colored fabrics for my quilting and fiber arts. As a marking tool, Derwent pencils work fairly well. You’ll need to use a lot of water to get the marks out, and avoid any colors that have any hint of red tint. The reds will permantently stain your fabric.
As a general purpose, beginner to moderate artist set, I’d definitely recommend the Derwent Watercolor Pencils, 3.4mm Core, Metal Tin, 36 Count (32885). If you’re an advanced artist looking for specific qualities, I don’t know if this set will suit your needs.
Bottom Line: The Derwent Watercolor Pencils, 3.4mm Core, Metal Tin, 36 Count (32885) has earned a permanent place in my studio.
