Oil Base pencils
Unlike the oil-free pencils and crayons, the pencils marked as Oil Base adhere firmly to the background and are smudge and waterproof. The black drawing pencil comes in 5 grades of hardness, offering a wide range of drawing and sketching possibilities.
Oil-free pastel pencils and artists’ crayons
These pencils and crayons in a variety of earth tones can be easily smudged with a finger to create coloured areas and delicate colour transitions, and require light fixing to preserve the drawing.
We recommend using the edges of the artists’ pastel crayons for shading. This will achieve more even and defined stroke widths, which adhere better to their background.
Drawing lines and areas
The artists’ pencils are ideal for drawing details, while the artists’ crayons are better suited to large or broad lines and areas.
Lightening with white
The different earth tones only display their full and unique character when lightened with white. Depending on the individual pigment, the shades also take on either warm or cool nuances.
Blending with white
White is not only used to apply highlights (especially on coloured paper), but also for smudging and blending. Two different grades of hardness facilitate the various shading techniques.
The products adhere so well to textured backgrounds that only minimal fixing is required. The colours are unaffected by exposure to sunlight.
