Faber Castell MOnochrome
What all PITT MONOCHROME products have in common is the traditional consistent high standards of quality: light-fast colours and the special binding agent which ensures high pigment density. They are also a delight to use.

PITT MONOCHROME artists' pencils are ideal for drawing fine lines and details. A wide range of hardness's allows a graduated depth which makes your drawings more three-dimensional. The pencils with wax leads are unusually smooth in use, and need no fixing. Their wood casing keeps the fingers clean, so avoiding smudges.

The classic artists' materials include the "natural" colours sepia and sanguine, and of course charcoal. Crayons, charcoal and graphite sticks and pencils therefore form a natural introduction to the world of Art & Graphic, and are part of the day-to-day toolkit of professional and amateur artists alike.

PITT MONOCHROME natural charcoal made from twigs is soft and very suitable for shading. The marks can be wiped and corrected easily.

Pressed charcoal comes in five grades from extra soft to extra hard. It leaves a dense black mark, ideal for heightening shadows and for clear delineation

Graphite sketching pencils reeves

The easy way to sharpen a pencil is with the traditional pencil sharpener block, the disadvantage of this is a symmetrical point, also more wastage of the graphite. But if you sharpen your pencil with a knife blade or scalpel , you can shape the end to be flat and wide in one direction and very thin in the other. Think a flat-head screwdriver, but sharp. You can have a variety of stokes by how you hold the pencil. You can also use fine sand / glass paper to adjust the edge also.
