This Basic box features a 4 piece charcoal set that offers three rich black pigments along with a white for stark highlights. To expand on your charcoal set, we included a willow charcoal stick set which are great for creating gradients or working with your initial sketch. We added just a hint of color with the Holbein oft pastel in Blue Grey 3, you will find that this beautiful tone compliments the rich blue of the paper in this box. For highlights to your art work this box contains the Prismacolor white colored pencil. To help with highlights or correct mistakes we included the Faber-Castell kneadable eraser (colors may vary) This box also comes with a trio sharpener from Faber-Castell, it's perfect for triangular and standard graphite pencils. The three- hole sharpener keeps shavings neatly contained in two separate reservoirs. Finally, our surface for this box is a custom Fabriano Tone Paper in the color sea. This 4x6 15 sheet pad, 85lb mid-tone paper has a subtle texture and works well with a variety of dry mediums. The blue tone of this pad offers a unique take on charcoal artwork.
