Yes.. I understand Bro.. That's how I use the watercolor pencils as well.. Sometimes dry.. then wet the picture.. sometimes wet them with water and use them.. I have done both with great results

As for them being water graphite.. I'm not sure what watercolor pencils are.. they surely aren't purely watercolor paint dried.. they are too strong for that.. Probably some wax in them.. but that would counteract the water.. I just don't know.. but these pencils are almost identical to the ones I have been using

True bro, well, 100% graphite is 10B. 9B is 90% graphite + 10% clay, so, I believe they mix something instead of the clay.
Seems to me that US brands are better than regular European ones.
