Pitt Graphite Matte pencils and sketch

Pitt Graphite Matte Pencils

Graphite without a glare has been hard to find until now. The Pitt Graphite Matte pencil is graphite that stands for reduced reflection on paper, allowing maximum tonal value density and incredible depth effect. The matte quality of this graphite pencil makes it unique in texture with a soft laydown giving a spontaneous artistic touch.

These pencils are ideal for extravagant sketching and drawing and come in 8 degrees of hardness.

Pitt Charcoal Set

Pitt Charcoal Pencils

Natural charcoal is the oldest sketching and drawing material known to mankind. The greyish-blue shade glides softly across the paper, rubs and smudges easily, and can be erased without difficulty and repeatedly overlaid. Their blueish hue has always held a fascination, even with the old masters. Can be sharpened with a sharpening knife.
