When you're working on a watercolor project, a charcoal sketch, or another multimedia masterpiece, artist crayons are an excellent tool that offer great pigment, control, and depth. In this collection, you'll find a wide selection of both wax based and water-soluble crayons from popular brands such as Conté, American Journey, Marabu, Daniel Smith, Caran D'Ache, and Derwent. For amateur and professional artists alike, these crayons are suitable for all experience levels.

Take your artwork to the next level with our inventory of professional-grade artist crayons. If you're searching for water-soluble options to use for watercolor, we offer great deals on single crayons and complete sets. Many of these are watercolor sticks, which provide convenience while painting and leave no mess. You will get the intense pigmentation you need for your artwork for developing color values, bold expressions, and more. We also offer water-soluble ink blocks if you'd prefer a more ink-like look for your project. Other options include Marabu's art crayons, which offer a creamy, soft texture for mixed media applications.

Searching for wax-based artist crayons instead? Perfect for use on toned papers, Bristol, newsprint, and more, wax-based crayons provide high quality shading and pigmentation. You can expect color to lay down with ease and great control. We offer several crayon sets from Conté that are ideal for students, hobbyists, and professionals. These range from 12 crayon sets up to 48 crayon sets. Add these to your art supplies alongside water-soluble crayons to bring vibrance, depth, and texture to your future paintings and other projects!

Since we only stock professional-grade art supplies, you really can't go wrong with any of these crayon products. With our 365 Day Return Policy, you have a whole year to determine if the crayons you order suit your needs. Want to stay in the know of Cheap Joe's announcements, sales, special offers, and more?
