Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils and Albrecht Durer watercolor markers can be a great addition to traditional watercolor paints when it comes to painting and adding color to your art projects. Both of these mediums are water-soluble and can be blended with watercolor paints to create unique effects and textures.

Named for the famous German watercolorist, Albrecht Durer Watercolor pencils are colored pencils that contain artist grade, water-soluble pigments, allowing you to draw or color in an area and then activate the color by adding water. They can be used for both wet and dry techniques, giving you the ability to create detailed and vibrant illustrations, as well as fantastical blends! To use these watercolor pencils with watercolor paints, you can either color an area with the pencil and then brush over it with water to create a smooth, blended effect, or you can add water directly to the pencil before coloring to create a stronger and more fluid effect.

Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils also make a fabulous pencil for underdrawing! No need for erasing your graphite sketches, as these pencils will melt into your watercolor during the first application. Like magic!

Albrecht Durer Watercolor Markers work similarly to the watercolor pencils, but instead of a solid form, they come in a marker format. They are great for creating both bold and precise lines, and they can be blended with watercolor paints in the same way as pencils. To use Albrecht Durer Watercolor Markers with your watercolor paints, simply draw your desired lines or shapes with the markers and then use a wet brush to blend the colors and create a smooth, watercolor effect.

When using watercolor pencils and markers with watercolor paints, it is important to remember that these mediums are water-soluble and can be easily activated with water. This means that they can be more easily manipulated and blended than traditional watercolor paints. You can experiment with different techniques and combinations to create unique effects and textures, or you can use them in conjunction with watercolor paints for a layered and textured painting. These techniques are fabulous for taking your watercolor pieces to the next level!

Overall, the Albrecht Durer line from Faber-Castell is a family of versatile water mediums that can add depth and dimension to your watercolor paintings. Whether you use them for dry or wet techniques, they are a great way to add color and texture to your art projects! Try them today!
