Not at all. Those are the Derwent pencils. I know nothing about them but was given a set of 24 by my M.I. L. They are a bit tricky to use, since the pencil when applied to the page does not always look like the color it will become when wet. And, it's hard to mix colors, since you must apply one color, then the next, and you can either do both layers while the paper is dry or do one layer, wet it, dry it, then apply next color. But, if you apply a pencil to a prewet page, the color comes off intense! And, no erasing.
So, the long and the short of it that they are a bit tricky to have a tight control of. But, if tight control is not necessary, then they are lots of fun.
I use typical watercolor paper; 140 lb. Cold pressed. I think you could use hot press, too. Regular drawing paper would buckly and ripple when wetted.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
