Description

The Cretacolor Monolith pencil is woodless – just 7mm of graphite with a thin lacquer coating – which allows you to use a huge range of strokes and techniques.

  • You can create everything from broad strokes to tiny details using the same pencil, and it’s easily sharpened, just like a conventional pencil.
  • This is the 9B version – the softest variety, which produces very black, easily smudged and blended marks.
  • Cretacolor Monoliths come in a range of hardnesses.

Q&A (2)
Q What pencil grade do I need?
A

Graphite pencils come in various weights and are graded from H (Hard) to B (Black). H pencils will tend to be used by architects, graphic designers and artists who illustrate fine details. The hardness of the graphite allows the pencil to make precise markings with little smudging. B pencils will tend to be used by artists for sketching. The soft lead is easily blend able and can be used to create shading and achieve tonal effects. Soft graphite is easy to smudge which is often used as an effect when drawing.

Q Are pencils graded universally?
A

All graphite pencils are graded from H (Hard) to B (Black). However, these grades are not strictly universal. For example, some brands may use a softer graphite during their manufacturing process than others. However, these differences are slight and the choice between which brands to buy will mostly come down to personal preference.

7th December 2017 Reviewed by Victoria Brown Excellent quality, within 5 minutes of receiving this my daughter accidentally dropped it on the floor, I was expecting it to break into a million pieces but the tip just chipped a bit. Lovely even coverage, easy to blend. No "casing" to the pencil means you can use a variety of techniques for shading.
