Description

Derwent XL Charcoal gives you all the versatility of a high-quality charcoal in a gorgeously tactile chunky block.

  • Each stick measures a generous 20mm x 20mm x 60mm, so they fit nicely into your hand, and the large size makes it easy to create a range of strokes.
  • Try using the long side for really strong, bold marks, or use an edge or corner for finer details.
  • They have a smooth texture, similar to that of a chalk pastel, and you can blend colours together or layer them up.

Q&A (2)
Q What is charcoal used for?
A

Charcoal is a brittle drawing media that is dense in colour and easy to smudge. This smudging technique is used to create gradients and shadows and makes for a fast and hands on approach to drawing. Charcoal is particularly good for working on quick large scale drawings.

Q Is charcoal water soluble?
A

No, charcoal will not solute in water. However you can use turpentine to solute charcoal should you wish.
