4.5 Stars4.6 / 5
Derwent Water Soluble Sketching Pencils 6 Pack is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting effects Not used these before but they are very versatile. They can be used as normal pencils but with the addition of water can produce shading, and can soften lines. Good as an underlying basis for full colour watercolour but graphite needs to be locked with water and allowed to dry before colour is added or it will bleed into the colour. A versatile addition to the kit list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big softies These lovely Derwent pencils are a joy to use with their dark, fat leads. They take readily to paper, especially a slightly textured surface, and the graphite spreads delightfully when wet. I have found a similar density of wash from each hardness in this set, the initial application does reflect the rating (HB, 4B and 8B - two of each). The little sharpener is handy as they wear faster than regular pencils, as is to be expected. Really love these high quality watersoluble pencils. Very highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pencils Love these pencils, these are to replace ones I have used before. Good to sketch and then wash out. Love the tin to keep them in to protect them and the pencil sharpener is a good one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, yet striking. My first time using any type of watercolour pencils and I am thoroughly impressed. This set consists of 2 of each HB, 4B and 8B. These just so happen to be my favourite grades of graphite pencils so that was the first win for me before I even started. They are easy to use and the different gradients are bold and clearly defined with their marks. I’ve found several techniques for using these and tried them for a still life drawing of a church. Absolutely perfect for a beginner and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely try these out! I've gone through a whole tin of these already and I just had to get them again! They have become a staple of my Illustration toolkit and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to create pencil illustrations or incorporate them into watercolour pieces. They're really versatile, you can use them as regular graphite pencils but you can also get really smooth and flowy effects with just a small amount of water. The only downside in my opinion is that there are two of each grade, it would be nice to have 6 different pencil grades, but that's me being nitpicky. Try these out!
