Arteza Expert Watercolor Pencil Review

Hi friends! I have been getting requests to review the Arteza Expert Watercolor pencils. I decided it would be nice to get this review up before Thanksgiving in case there are some really good Black Friday sales to take advantage of (you never know!)

I have really enjoyed working with these watercolor pencils, they feel softer and creamier than a typical watercolor pencils but they sharpen well without breakage. It’s not what I expect from a budget priced product. Then again I have been pretty impressed with Arteza’s line of products over all. Arteza gave me a 10% off coupon code FRUGAL10 to share with you if ordering off their website but I also recommend checking Amazon before ordering to make sure you get the best deal. You can check out these pencils in today’s video review.

Pros:
Price-$35 for a set of 72 in a reusable tin
Quality- Vivid colors that layer well
Lightfast info provided
Leads are strong and seemed well centered sharpens well

Cons:
You can’t buy individual colors so if you use one up you will need to replace it with another brand or buy a new set

Supplies: Affiliate links used: Watercolor pencils and paper from Arteza *Use coupon code FRUGAL10 for 10% off if shopping on the Arteza Website.

The paper I used to demonstrate was their premium cellulose super-affordable student grade paper. They just came out with a 100% cotton Expert version that I haven’t tried yet.  Let me know if you would like a review of the new paper. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
