Solid graphite, pure and simple!
Working with a chunky block of solid graphite is hugely satisfying, encouraging you to create quick, dramatic sketches and atmospheric line drawings. Natural Graphite has a slightly dusty quality, so it blends very easily and you can even add a little water for the subtlest wash effects. As a block, Natural Graphite has impressive covering power and can be used on its side for a solid sweep of tone. It comes in three versatile grades, soft, medium and hard.
These chunky square natural graphite blocks are ideal for producing broad strokes when used on their flat side or end or fine lines when used on their edge. They have a slightly dusty quality which allows for easy blending. They are available in 3 grades hard, medium and soft.
