You can find the derwent brand of watercolor pencils at Jo-Ann
fabrics and also at Michael's craft stores (I'm sure most big craft
store chains have them in the art section). They sell them
individually in a big display; look for that.

: any other methods to transfer a design?

You can trace the design with tracing paper and a gel pen then use
that to transfer it. It took me a few tries to get the right amount
of ink and the right dampness of skin - try it on scraps of paper
with doodles *before* you trace a whole design and try to use that
(ask me how I learned this... :-)

Zimra, currently being amazed at the stain last week's henna (which
has sat out on the counter since last monday) has produced - deep
brick at first removal!
