Derwent Watersoluble Sketching Pencils, 6-Ct. Metal TinUse Them Wet or Dry
Derwent Sketching Pencils are watersoluble tools best suited for freestyle sketching and bold line drawings. A soft, extra wide graphite core sweeps smoothly across paper for a fast, even lay down, yet is equally suitable for more detailed work. Use them dry or add water to bring a new dimension to your work. Durable metal tin includes 2 each of the following degrees: HB, 4B, 8B and a pencil sharpener. H pencils are hard, light and leave less graphite on paper. B pencils are soft, dark and leave more graphite on paper; HB is somewhere in the middle range between H and B, yet still reasonably hard. The more B’s, the softer the lead. HB is equivalent to a standard number 2 pencil. Plus, they’re pre-sharpened, so they’re ready to use.Watersoluble Sketching Pencils Allow You to Create in a Variety of Ways:
- Cross Hatching — Simply lay down lines by crisscrossing them over each other.
- Layering — Layer different degrees of pencil to achieve various tones and shades.
- Blending and Burnishing — Perfect for adding shine to your work especially when drawing leaves of fruit.
- Wax Resist — Draw your design using the burnishing pencil, then add your graphite and/or color. The wax will resist the pencil leaving that part of your drawing white.
Since 1832, Derwent has been inspiring amateur and professional artists with an exceptional range of innovative fine art materials.
