Drawing with graphite is slightly different than working with lead pencils. It takes a certain skill, and it's important to have the proper equipment to do so. Many artists prefer graphite over lead, as the graphite is able to achieve stark contrasts that are not possible with ordinary lead pencils.
It can take some time to get used to sketching with graphite pencils if you're used to working with lead pencils, but the results make it worthwhile. Soon you'll want to experiment with graphite watercolours. Here, you'll require water and a paintbrush, as opposed to a pencil.
At Pigment Lab, we stand for quality, which is why we proudly carry ArtGraf graphite products. Along with premium graphite pencils, water-soluble graphite sticks can help you fill in and add shading to your drawings. A kneadable graphite works wonders and can be used wet or dry to add unique shadowing to your designs.
An AltGraf carbon disc pac is compact enough to take everywhere you go. These chalks can be used wet or dry and applied similar to paint, using a paintbrush. The combination of prime and earthy colours allows you to accomplish unique works of art.
