The Lovely Mr Hudson here is one of the sexiest men in rock n’ roll, there are others, your mileage may vary, as will your taste in argyle sweaters if you happen to be addicted to a certain other guitarist whose name conveniently escapes me right now.

Review – Pentel Aquash Crayon Set

The last of my reviews of art materials by Pentel.

What is it?

It’s a set of 10 watercolour crayons with an aquash brush (a very handy hollow body brush pen for filling with water), a sharpener, and a cleaning sponge. All in a pretty little tin.

The sharpener ensures your crayons stay as sharp as they need to be, and you can create your own mixes in the little palette dimples left for you in the tray.
