Neocolor II water-soluble wax oil pastels made by Caran d’Ache are softer than colored pencils, denser than children’s wax crayons, and like their name suggests can blend with water to allow wet and dry techniques to be combined in the same drawing. Because of their strong pigmentation they have excellent covering power – light colors cover dark colors and vice-versa. They also have excellent light resistance and velvety, luminous colors.
Neocolors are also soft enough to smudge with fingertips, yet they do not crumble, and are much firmer than oil pastels. Neocolor II offers endless creative possibilities for both professionals and beginners.
Techniques: Wet or dry drawing on various materials, watercolour, wash drawing, scraping or for applying to light panels, monotypes, wet drawing, glazing or rainbow gradation.
Individual crayons measure 105 mm in length and 10 mm in diameter (4-1/8″ _ 5/16″).
Neocolor II are Swiss made according to the highest quality standards.
