Title: Caran D'Ache Swiss Made Neocolor II Water-soluble Colour Wax Pastels 84-colors
Post by: MaryAnne Long on January 11, 2018, 05:50:48 AM
A friend gave me this set to try.  Has anyone had any experience with it:

Plan to use it to do a test of Van Gogh's "Starry, Starry Night" on Crumpled Paper. Initial quick test looked quite promising.

Mea, I have never heard of their water-soluble wax pastels before although Caran D'Ache is an excellent make. Looking forward to hearing about them.    Patricia

I have read about them, but never seen any to try. I have seen some works done with these and they look fantastic. Can't wait to see what you do with these!  :heeha:

I have a small set of 15 of these. They're fun and quite vibrant. I need to remind myself to play with them some more.
