Charcoal Starter Kit – Nitram
The beauty of Nitram charcoal lies in its attributes – very little dust, resistant to breakage and crumbling. This charcoal is designed to be used by artists doing figure drawing at a studio, but since it is such a stunning product, it should be the number one choice for any artist using charcoal as a medium.
Nitram Charcoal has the advantage of rich blacks and a wider range of shades, this helps the artist refine the values that will later define the finished piece. The superb quality ensures no crumbling under pressure so expressing yourself with confidence is not a problem.
The Nitram Sharpening Bloc is the ideal tool for shaping and sharpening charcoal and other drawing media. If you like making graphite powder or charcoal powder, the sharpening block will assist greatly in doing that. The bigger charcoal blocs are idea for making powder.
Charcoal starter kit contains:
- 4 Sticks (1 each): H, HB, B, B+
- Slim Sharpening Block
- Includes extra set of replacement pads
Hint: A fine-toothed paper is better suited to adhere to the charcoal and create less dust, while a rough-toothed paper will adhere but it can be more difficult to blend the charcoal.
