White Nights Watercolour Pencils x24, tin box

'White Nights' water colour pencils series are designed specifically for professional artists, designers, and illustrators.  They perfectly combine the properties of watercolours and coloured pencils.  They differ in brightness of colours, softness of application and colour purity.  Watercolour pencils can be easily shaded with water using a brush, helping to create scenic pictures.  To achieve the effect of water colours, you can work in different techniques, working with pencils on wet paper, or shade the necessary parts of the drawing by wet brush.  The pencils are made of soft cedar wood, which allows easy sharpening.  It is recommended to use watercolour paper.

The name “White Nights” comes from St. Petersburg, where summer nights are long and the sky is never dark.  “White Nights” is a famous brand of professional watercolour paints.  Crafty Studio Art Supplies are the first to bring White Nights watercolour paints to Ireland!

“White Nights” are extra fine watercolour paints, manufactured using the highest grade of the finest pigment particles plus gum arabic.

Unlike pan watercolours made with the extrusion process, “White Nights” Watercolours are poured—a process preserving the integrity of each pigment and resulting in semi-moist cakes that respond instantly to a wet brush.

“White Nights” full pans are 2.5ml and compare favourably in price with other professional watercolour brands.  This 2.5ml range will typically outprice the 1.5ml (half-pan) ranges of other professional brands – yet the quality is on a par with them.

Key features:

  • Pigment load 15-50% (very high for watercolours)
  • 3/4 single pigment colours
  • Majority of colours have medium or high light-fastness
  • Ideal for both wet and dry techniques
  • Incredibly rich and strong colours
  • Paint looks transparent – even after 7 layers
  • Finely dispersed
  • Includes gum arabic and honey
  • Liquid poured

A comprehensive colour chart is available here that details the colours available in this set.

Innovative developments and sophisticated technologies aimed at producing the highest quality artistic materials have made White Nights watercolours a hallmark of the company both in Russia and abroad.  The paints are made from finely ground pigments and are bound by gum arabic.  The high concentration of pigment ensures an extremely intense colour tone in the paint.  Depth is maintained even when diluted by a large quantity of water.  The pure colors mean that you can mix the paints to obtain a rich range of hues.  Most of the paints are highly light-resistant, ensuring that your works can survive for over 100 years.

Crafty Studio is the first (and only store) to sell White Nights watercolour in Ireland.  Learn more about the White Nights brand here.

  1. Maire

    This is my first introduction to White Nights watercolours. I am familiar with another artists’ quality brand. I am really pleased with the strength of colour and how they react to the brush. The price point is also very good in comparison with other brands. The online service was excellent and the order arrived the next day.

    I normally use either artist quality tubes or pans from another make that is more expensive. This set arrived the day after I ordered it and I used it on a plein air meet up with friends. The paints re-wetted beautifully and it was easy to get a good rich colour on to the brush and they dried beautifully. A great little set for travelling. I am going to purchase more pans to put in a larger palette for bigger paintings. Great service all round, thank you
