They so kindly sent me a couple of items, and I am thrilled to share them with you.
First up is the N’ice Pen
The n’ice pen unites organic form with superlative design.The plastic end cap available in six colors is a cheerful contrast to the chrome-plated barrel. White, Lime, Coral, Plum, Turquoise and Anthracite are perfect for any fashionable or functional occasion. Its plastic cap secures the pen safely to an agenda or diary. The pen has a twist mechanism to extend and retract the black smooth-running and waterproof magnum refill.
I have to say that this pen is a pleasure to write with. It is smooth and actually makes my handwriting look like an adult’s writing!
And now, what I am most excited about – water color pencils! I had no idea that such a thing existed, so naturally I was intrigued. These satisfied my curiosity enough to finally try my hand with water colors.
Water Color Pencils:
Albrecht Dürer artists’ watercolor pencils provide artists with great versatility of expression when drawing, shading and painting in watercolours. High-quality materials, combined with over 250 years of experience, have resulted in watercolor pencils that produce unsurpassed watercolor effects and vibrancy. The colored surface can be transformed with only a few fine or broad brush strokes to reveal the full and unique power of the colors. Depending on the paper being used, the pigments can be completely dissolved, and will then behave in the same way as classic watercolor paints.
I wanted to share a few projects I did (please don’t judge – I am new at this!), so you can see what is possible.
Neat, right? All of the above, created from the items below. I am having a BLAST with these!
I love that these pencils are of high quality – the pigments are bright and colorful and they dissolve really fast and completely when the brush with water is applied to them. Of course, I wouldn’t expect less from any Faber-Castell products though. I also love that they are very sturdy. It would be easy to snap a pencil in half while bearing down on it, but these pencils hold up like champs! What is nice is that when you order Water Color pencils from Faber-Castell, you can choose individual pencils or pencils in various assorted sets.
Faber-Castell has been around for years and years, and they have always had some of the best art supplies around. In addition to what I have shown you above, they have oodles and oodles of other fun products to let you unleash your creative monster too! If you are looking for holiday gift for the budding (or experienced) artist in your life, you will most likely find all you need from Faber-Castell. These would make awesome gifts for the holidays!
