Albrecht Dürer artists’ watercolor pencils have been the hallmark of excellence in the watercolor pencil market due to their exceptional properties. Meet Magnus, their big brother: The Albrecht Dürer Magnus watercolor pencils are a huge 5.3 mm soft, vibrant lead that easily lays down color. They are ideal for large-scale drawings, watercolor sketches, and covering large areas quickly. The voluminous pencil shape is gentle on the wrist. Even after long periods of use, the Albrecht Dürer Magnus enables fatigue-free painting and drawing. Like their smaller counterparts, leads are bonded into the barrel to prevent breakage when dropped.
