What are charcoal pencils good for?
Charcoal pencils are great for drawing and sketching. Their comfortable shape allows you to create precise and bold lines. You can also create a variety of effects from bold and light tones, fine details, shading and more. They are also suitable for any surface, but best suited to fine toothed art paper.
Are charcoal or graphite pencils better?
It ultimately depends on personal preference and the effect you want to achieve! The powdery texture and bold tone allows charcoal pencils to be easily smudged, creating a range of effects. Graphite pencils aren’t as messy and produce lighter tones, and are great for creating a variety of effects.
Are charcoal pencils erasable?
Charcoal pencils are very easy to erase! Because charcoal contains less binders than graphite, they are a breeze to erase, so you can easily correct any mistakes. We recommend using a kneadable eraser on your charcoal drawings as they won’t leave any residue behind.
