Faber-Castell is delighted to introduce an engaging new product line for crafters called design memory craft. Thoughtfully designed around a MIX & MATCH concept, these new assortments make crafting with color simple yet inspirational. Choose a color palette, choose a medium, then Mix & Match as you create. The coordinated combinations give you the freedom to design projects with confidence, knowing that the colors and mediums will work beautifully together.
Mix & Match Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil sets are wonderfully versatile allowing crafters to create translucent watercolor washes and vibrant portions of color. The eco-friendly Art GRIP® Aquarelle pencils have some unique features that make working with them a pleasure – a stylish and ergonomic triangular shape, comfy and ergonomic soft-GRIP® dots, and highly pigmented 3.3mm leads that have a patented bonding to resist breakage. These pencils have smooth lay down and are completely water-soluble for beautiful watercolor results. And try them with PITT® artist pens for mixed media projects.
Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils allow you to add watercolor painting effects to your projects. Simply brush a wet paintbrush over your design to dissolve the lead and release the color. Apply a wash of color to stamped images, or create beautiful backgrounds for cards and scrapbook pages. Each set contains 9 pencils and is available in color palettes of Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow, and for shimmering effects a metallic gold or silver pencil is included. The sets have a suggested retail price of $12.95.
Mix & Match PITT® Pastel Pencils create soft color edgings along cards, scrapbook pages, and in journals. Or keep the tip sharp to draw strong vibrant lines for your designs. Combine both techniques for a contrasting effect. Blend the colors with your fingers or a blending stump, and mistakes can easily be erased with an eraser. Try the PITT® Pastel Pencils on all types of paper – light, dark, smooth, textured, even sandpaper.
These pencils provide velvety chalk color without the dust and mess of chalks. You can use a standard sharpener to sharpen them, and the color leads are glued the entire length of the barrel to protect against breakage. The high quality pigments are lightfast and archival. Mix and match these pencils with PITT® Artist Pens and Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils in a variety of techniques to add dimension to your creative projects.
The Mix & Match PITT® Pastel Pencils are available in 3 sets. The Red/Yellow and Blue/Green assortments contain 6 pencils and have a suggested retail price of $14.95. The Neutrals set has 4 pencils and a suggested retail price of $9.95.
