Used as instructed these are absolutely fine. Using Watercolour paper makes all the difference. They mix and blend well from abstract to fine drawing or painting. Yes they will wash off to a certain extent but so will any watercolour paint. They are so useful to carry about and use without all the fuss of water, then finish off at home. Also useful for sketching in preparation for your next masterpiece. Down side....they are quite expensive, but last and keep well. Make sure they lie flat when not in use.

the claim that these felt tip pens act like watercolour and can be colour washed etc is completely untrue. Once on the paper you can scrub at them with water and will be lucky if you get even a faint wash of colour. Ordinary, cheap felt tips give more colour than this. Very disappointed and thinking of sending them back to Winsor and newton with a complaint.Sue Watts (LEEDS, United Kingdom) on 3 Apr 2015

Sorry you had trouble with the pens. I have checked with WInsor and Newton and they advise using their specially designed Watercolour Marker Pads.
