This month's box is all about Sanguine! In the box you will find a 10-piece Winsor & Newton tin sketching set. This set includes a wide range of materials to help you get your creativity flowing. Use the graphite pencils to sketch out your concept, and the charcoal materials in combination with the sanguine supplies in this box. The blending stump in this set is perfect for small areas and sharp details. We worked directly with Cretacolor color to bring you this SketchBox exclusive size of Sanguine Powder. The color is a strong red-brown, and is perfect for shading and blending tones. The sofft knife and covers are great for creating soft transitions, and blending values. We have also include a set of 2 of the Cretacolor art sticks in Burnt and Dry Sanguine. This set will offer a darker value and finer detail, the XL dry stick is perfect for larger areas and gesture. The surface this month is a custom Fabriano sand toned paper. This 4x6" 15 sheet pad has a medium tone which offers a striking contrast to the white charcoal and sanguine items in this box.
