Caran d’Ache has drawn on its expertise and explored the deepest graphite mines to search out the infinite colour nuances of carbon. The result is the Graphite Line, an original concept dedicated to graphite that allows artists to compose their graphite range and explore all the shades of black. An integral component of the line is the Grafwood pencil which features one of the most complete ranges of graphite leads.
This series of extra-fine graphite pencils contains 15 gradations from the hardest to the softest black
(including 9B, the deepest black on the market), enabling artists to produce an infinite range of techniques and effects, uniform darkening of large surfaces, and regular and intense line drawing.
An easy-to-hold design offers optimal artistic control.
- 9B – 3B: Extra fine graphite pencils to allow uniform shading of large areas and a regular, intense stroke.
- 2B – H: Extra-fine graphite pencils for hatching and superimposing.
- 2H – 4H: Extra-fine graphite pencils for intense, regular, fine and extra-fine lines (technical drawing, scientific illustration, etc).
With its particular feel and multiple shades of grey, raw graphite is made from a homogenous material to achieve thick and thin lines, gradation, flat-wash, blurring or watercolour effects. All shades and their various gradations have been carefully developed and perfected in the Geneva workshops of Caran d’Ache.
With its two innovations, Grafcube and Grafwood, the Graphite Line is a first in terms of personal choice.
Developed and manufactured in Switzerland.
