Faber Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils 250th Anniversary Box Set of 25

Recently picked up this nice commemorative box of watercolor pencils.  I have enjoyed their bright colors, smooth lay down, and their ability to quickly dissolve into watercolor washes for a long time. They are a quick and easy way of adding color to an inked sketch. With the addition of waterbrush, they work as a versatile sketching and coloring kit. This particular set with its elegant silver metal lid and dark wooden base with magnetic studs makes for a sharp-looking desktop accessory or a good introductory palette for a new user. Faber Castell actually celebrated its 250th Anniversary back in 2011, so if you shop around you are likely to find a good deal on this nice set of 25 watercolor pencils.  I have noticed several sites now list it well below its manufacturer suggested retail price.  Recommended.
