  6. says

    No. very curious. we love doing crayon resists with regular crayons and watercolors. I’m assuming THESE crayons would NOT resist watercolor paint… hmmm… hope we get to try them! :-)

  7. Rebecca Feucht says

    No just watercolor pencils, and they work beautifully so I hope to try the crayons soon.

  52. says

    I haven’t tried watercolor crayons yet, but I’m excited to hear about them!!! Honestly, I use to think watercolor pencils were supposed to just look like watercolors. It wasn’t until my daughter was about 5 that I realized that you can paint over them with water!! Coooool!

  53. anita goodwien says

    I am so behind the times.Cant wait to try them.Having fun trying new things with grandkids.

    I have used watercolor pencils myself, many years ago, but I have not introduced my children to them.

    We love watercolor crayons and I’m always recommending them. They’re fun and straight forward, but special-feeling at the same time.

  87. Heather S. says

    Yes! Super fun, though my two year makes a bigger mess with these, so for now we have stuck to Crayola watercolor trays that have been previously used by big sister (I don’t mind so much when he turns them to ‘preschool brown’ if they got some use beforehand)

  88. Brandy H says

    Watercolor crayons?? I had no idea ~ I’m so far behind the learning curve! Would love to try some and am sure my littles would be hooked after one drawing!

  89. Tonpia says

    No, but they sound like the greatest idea ever (says my puddled floors after the toddler finishes her painting session).

    yes! it was one of the first art supplies my son got around age 2 that he loved and he’s been using them ever since!

    Yes! My daughter first tried them at school and came home raving about them. She and her younger sister both enjoy them.

    NO, but considering they combine my love of crayons with my daughter’s love of paint, we certainly should!

  95. Laura says

    Yes, I like how watercolor crayons give you a nice controlled and sharp edge to applying watercolor (much like watercolor pencils) – a nice addition while children & adults refine their skills with a brush.

  96. syeda says

    No,I haven’t tried them yet but sure would love them. I have tried watercolor pencil and love them.

  97. Amber W. says
