Charcoal as nature intended!
One of the oldest and most traditional drawing tools, charcoal is basically carbonised wood – so for a truly authentic result, why not use charcoal as nature intended. Compressed Charcoal is a solid stick of pure, reformed wood charcoal. It produces deep, dense tones with a completely different texture to graphite. Available in three versatile grades, light, medium and dark, Compressed Charcoal is naturally watersoluble allowing you to create interesting line and wash effects.
These chunky smooth 8mm square compressed charcoal sticks are 75mm long and are available in 3 grades light, medium and dark. They are ideal for producing broad strokes when used on their flat side or end or fine lines when used on their edge.
