Natural vine charcoal is uncompressed, making it easy to erase and ideal for creating a base to draw on while hard, compressed charcoal creates dark lines that make your sketches pop. Round out your drawings with charcoal pencils that create sharp details and are easy to control. To keep your art tight, the kit comes with both a kneaded eraser that can be shaped to any area you want to erase and a vinyl Magic Rub eraser that s perfect for delicate surfaces. Meanwhile, the sanding board (sharpening block) makes it easy to create powdered mixes and unique points and the steel pencil sharpener sharpens your pencils to a precision point. The kit is completed with a blending stump that helps you seamlessly blend values together.
