Review: Traveling with Faber-Castell watercolor pencils

My mom gave me a set of mini watercolor pencils from Faber-Castell some years ago and they’re still what I bring with me when I travel. I love the convenience of having handy pencils and watercolors in one portable set, and how the 12 colors are enough to create more colors. Perfect for traveling, since it’s spillproof and very convenient.

You can achieve a high-level of intensity by building up the layers and blend two colors to create a new one. We also used it to color, and here’s what my cousin came up with–this is her first time to color and try these pencils and she loved it. Look at how beautiful  her output was:


I’m having another trip soon and I’m surely bringing my Faber-Castell set with me again. 🙂 🙌
