Quick Overview

Derwent Triangular watercolour Artbars features a luxuriously smooth and creamy consistency as they release deep rich and highly pigmented colour offer artists’ unlimited creative potential. The wax based watercolour bars can be used dry or wet to paint expressive marks and beautiful pieces of art. Use a brush to add water and the dry marks melt away before your eyes. The Artbars are also suitable for large, dramatic pieces containing lively marks and shapes as well to adding finer detail because of their triangular shape.

Artbars measure 3-¾ inch long, with triangular edges that are ¼ inch long.

You’re only limited by your imagination!

  • Unique triangular shape expands your creative options
  • Creamy wax-based bars have a smooth consistency similar to an oil pastel
  • Rich, opaque colour is not permanent, so you can draw over previous marks and cover them up
  • Water soluble colour can also be covered with ease
  • Make your mark with highly pigmented wax bars.
  • Stick Dimensions: 7.7 x 0.6 x 4.5 inches; 10mm wide tip offers superior coverage; 95mm long bars of colour; no waste
  • Item Weight: 7.8 ounces

Take them with you: Each Artbar is protected by a peelable silver wrapper and is easy to transport when dry. Due to their shape, they won’t fall off your sketchbook, so they’re great "en plein air." You can also snap off a bit of the bar for more control.

Try These Techniques: Make Different Marks. Turn the bar on different edges and sides to create interesting marks on paper.

Blend and Layer: Blend and layer different colours to build up varied pigment. The colour isn't permanent so it can be drawn over again and again.

Just Add Water: When water is added, colours melt before your eyes to become a paste that can be further watered down to a wash or left opaque.

Build Up Surface Texture: Layer small scraps of Artbar on top of a drawing. Work it into the surface with warm fingers and a little moisture.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers.  I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much.   I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies.  We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary.   You have made our lives so much simpler.   I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends. 

Thank you again.
I will be back.

I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

Great job!

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!

I hope I’ll be able to  broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J

Take care
