The Shop / April 2018 Basic Box
Our April boxes focused on a truly unique medium - tinted charcoal!
Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils offer a new twist on
one of the earliest drawing mediums. Natural charcoal
particles are mixed with a small amount of pigment and
the finest clays to extend creative possibilities.
These tinted charcoal colors smudge and blend
beautifully to produce deep, rich tones. We also included a Pentel Color Pen in light gray and dark brown. A fine point fiber-tipped marker that keeps its shape for
both thin and thick lines. The ink is vibrant, non-toxic,
instant drying and will not bleed through paper. Next up we included a blending stump set from Derwent. Paper stumps make the difficult job of blending dusty
media like charcoal much easier and cleaner. These
paper stumps are made from compressed rice paper
and feature a point at each end. To round out your new Charcoal set we also included a Derwent charcoal pencil. These pencils feature high quality
craftsmanship with artist quality charcoal. We wanted
to add to your set a versatile light black color
to add outlines, shadows, and detail to your new piece. Next we included 2 Factis Black Magic erasers from General Pencil. They're ideal for use with charcoal, pastels and more. This black
eraser does not smudge, cuts a clean edge and doesn’t
harm the paper. Finally we included a Factis soft vinyl eraser. This is one of the softest art erasers made. The white
vinyl is perfect for charcoal and loves rough papers. This picture was taken by our subscriber @ tiffanycolors79 on instagram!
