  • Best kept secret in drawing pencils

    Reviewed on 8/26/2014

    As reviewed by Timothy Ramzyk

    Experience: PROFESSIONAL

    I don't know why everyone who likes to draw doesn't use these, or why nobody knows about them. The oil base allows a much smoother performance than dry dusty charcoal while sacrificing none of its deep blacks or blend-ability. These are not like an oil pastel in pencil form, they have all the hardness grades of traditional charcoal, and are not greasy. I love them because I don't like the brittle, dusty nature of charcoal or conte, but love there deep tones. It handles more like a cross between graphite, and charcoal and a color pencil, without being waxy or reflective.
