Pastel pencils and fox drawing

Pitt Pastel Pencils

Pitt Pastel Pencils offer the artist the best of both worlds by combining the confidence and control of a pencil with the soft, looser mark of pastel. The colors can be blended and layered just as they would in a soft pastel painting. Their pencil form also allows the pastel to be easily sharpened to a point and be used for developing details in artwork.

The Pitt pastel pencil lead contains a high level of pigment, making the pencils ideally suited both for drawing lines and shading, as well as blending and merging into delicate color transitions. Their light, clean application creates significantly less dust than other pastel chalks during use, allowing artists to enjoy pastel techniques without the mess that often accompanies them.

Castell 9000

Pitt Graphite Matt Pencils

The revolutionary Pitt Graphite Matt collection was developed for the artist to be able to successfully produce their finest work both physically and digitally, by creating an innovative new matt lead formula that reduces the unwanted shine and light reflection that regular graphite pencils have always been known to produce. Their superior matt finish makes photographing and scanning art problem free, presenting artwork in its finest most accurate form.

Paper blender
