Watercolour pencils

There are lots of good ones to choose from. The Derwent are really nice, probably my favorites. Berol/Prismacolor as good. Some brands are definitely more waxy than others and don't layer as well. Others develop a foggy looking "bloom" with time, which isn't so great. Some spray fix might take care of that.

Thanks, I went for the Derwent set, getting on OK with them but need to get hold of some different colours as these seem to be too bright.
