Natural charcoal sticks are the oldest sketching and drawing material in the world. Natural charcoal is grease and oil-free and produces a bluish-black line and greyish-blue shading. It glides softly across paper and rubs, smudges and erases easily. Natural charcoal is buildable and can be layered for a darker colour payoff to create tonal drawings. Due to its blueish hue, natural charcoal has always held a fascination among old and new artists. When natural charcoal is packaged in pencil form, it can create a much blacker line than sticks as more pressure can be applied.
Available individually in soft, medium and hard pencils.
