Derwent Graphitone graphite sticks combine all the benefits of pure artist quality graphite with watersolubility for limitless creativity when drawing or sketching. Although designed like a pencil for increased control and ease of use – perfect for beginners learning new skills – the paper wrapper can easily be peeled off to use the stick whole, or broken into chunks to quickly create broad sweeps of tone. With watersolubility, artists can further develop less traditional drawing techniques that speed up the shading process and give their work a softer feel with an almost paint-like effect.
Although all graphite sticks are ideal for expressive drawing and sketching, Derwent Graphitone equally suited to line and wash drawing just by adding water. This not only helps students experiment with new techniques and expand their creative freedom, but ensures the sticks last longer so schools can save money. Each stick has a large diameter casing with pure graphite and highly purified clays for a high quality and professional finish every time.
