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

10th October 2014 Reviewed by Jay Kay In the past, I have bought charcoal sticks and just found them so messy. These charcoal pencils reduce mess and increase use and function because they do not crumble therefore are not wasteful. What was even more helpful was that they came in light, medium and dark as well as a white pencil and sharpener. This set just made charcoal drawing a lot more efficient.

3rd July 2014 Reviewed by Helen Laishley The pencils are wonderful, but I was hoping that the sharpener would have fitted the pencil width and it doesnt. It just breaks the end of the pencil off before you can get a sharp point.
