Natural Charcoal sticks are the oldest sketching and drawing material in the world. These naturally produced, charred willow twigs are easy to smudge and produce
shimmering grey lines that lend an expressive character to drawings. You can use varying pressure to achieve a range of expression. Natural charcoal is perfect for depicting different textures. You can use intermediate fixes to build up dark areas of great depth. The Pitt Natural Charcoal pencil allows you to draw more precisely and to work in detail. Charcoal drawings should be fixed when finished.
The Pitt Charcoal pencil is sharpened with an electric sharpener or sharpening knife, as the lead would break in a normal sharpener.
The kneadable eraser is the ideal medium to work lines into a charcoal surface or to lighten areas. It can be used in an infinite number of ways as it can be shaped to suit your purpose.
