Watercolor pencils have found their way into the taxidermy industry as an added medium for tipping fish scales as well as highlighting detail on your fish mounts. These professional-quality, water-soluble pencils offer the fish taxidermist/carver the freedom to combine hand detailing with airbrushing for that competitive advantage. Use them to shade on dry skin then quickly wash over with brush and water to get a blending effect. You can also try wetting the pencil first for rich, intense lines. Each pencil is pre-sharpened and has a 3.4 mm diameter color strip.
