Product Overview

Discover charcoal in the versatile XL blocks format. Naturally water-soluble and highly versatile large blocks with soft texture, delivering smooth smudge effects. The tin includes six greyscale shades. Create bold and agile marks with the strength and body of Derwent Charcoal XL Blocks.

Each pastel-like block contains a high volume of formula, equivalent to 8 pencils. Ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in your hand, use the blocks for large scale drawings or use the edges and corners to add fine detail and line work.

As charcoal is naturally water-soluble, small amounts of water can be added to manipulate the texture for interesting effects. The soft texture of the charcoal delivers smooth smudge effects for broad coverage. Break into pieces or grate into powder to add textures and details. Get messy with this extra-large block.
