Carbon is the right pencil for sketches and drawings where a particular intensity of the stroke is needed. The pasty and full stroke provides the opportunity to achieve dark and velvety tones and very defined contrasts.
Compared to charcoal, which is totally matt, Carbon leaves a semi-opaque black mark and by increasing the pressure on the paper the stroke increases in body and brings out a natural shine. The natural binder ensures that the pigments adhere perfectly to the
Carbon is partially blendable, it can be drawn across the paper but only for short stretches as it rapidly lightens out. It is a pencil which can be used to easily combine, within the same drawing, details made with clean and clear black strokes (of a thickness which can be adjusted by altering the slant of the pencil) and an indefinite, partially blended area, left to the imagination.
Carbon is erasable using a putty rubber based on the intensity of the stroke.
