These are by far the best watercolor crayon. You can lift the pigment off the crayon with a wet brush. This makes them ideal for travel journaling. With a larger set you can break of small (maybe 1 inch) pieces and put them in a small tin. It's a really easy way to carry a lot of color in a small space.

This is a wonderful medium for working on paper. The Carn d'Ache company also makes Mr. color Face Paints, which work the same way yet use pigments that are 100% safe for using on skin. According to them, the watercolor crayons contain pigments that are not. They nonetheless excite users of all ages as they glide onto paper in bright colors after simply dipping in water.

I'm very happy with this product. I'm an artist and enjoy working with mixed media and these crayons are the perfect addition to my artwork. I was very happy with this vendor and would buy from them again.

I purchased these for a children's event that I volunteered to do face painting for. All I used was a small container of water, a paper towel to blot off excess and a mirror for the kids to see their designs when done. No messy brushes! This kit had all the vivid colors I needed and I just sharpen them with a pencil sharpener when the tips get dull. Glides on skin easily, blends in and can use one color on top of another. They dry quick too. Easily comes off skin with a wet wipe or soapy water.

I just gently dip the tip in water, blot on a paper towel then draw. The paints wash off really easy too.

I have to disagree with most of the reviews here and I wish someone could convince me otherwise. I have tried the crayons on fine and thick watercolor paper, at other times with gesso on, and still I don't get the smooth results I see everywhere. I dislike that I still see the rough crayon marks when I add water when I was expecting a total dilution of the material, leaving no crayon marks which look like children's work. The best use so far is when I pass a wet brush over the stick and apply the paint over a drawing. It solves the problem of carrying messy watercolors, but the colors are faded and not bright and deep as as I was expecting. If you don't apply water they behave as children's Crayolas and for that, I would use the children's material. Still, I think it is an innovative way to experiment and I will continue using them for my weekly sketches. I have not used on skin since I don't have little ones around. That could be a fun use for many.

Awesome product unlike any other brand, watercolor crayons. So rich and vibrant, a little goes a long was. I have to say that i expected a larger crayon, but ther very concentrated. Thus the smaller crayon, about the size of a crayon. a lager open stock crayon is avalable at art suppliers.

I work in theatre and we use these for face painting. The colors are vibrant and the paint washes off so easily. This is a great product!
