Cretacolor's Aquamonolith Watercolor Pencils are woodless pencils from Austria. They're colored pencils made of pigments and binders wrapped in a thin layer of lacquer. Paint both fine lines and big surfaces with these unique aquarell colored pencils. They come pre-sharpened, and can easily be sharpened with a normal pencil sharpener. When a watercolor result is desired, simply rework the applied color with water and a brush.
