Made by using a special deep-firing method, Cretacolor Charcoal Powder creates a dense, rich charcoal. Multifunctional, this charcoal can be used to create subtle blended tones in drawings or can be mixed with acrylic mediums to create beautiful glazes or thick impastos, or added to water for delicate tonal washes. It is perfect for large-scale drawing and three dimensional working. It glides across your support and can be erased and worked using a kneadable eraser whilst being easily blendable. Available as a fine powder in a 175 grams jar. This Cretacolor Charcoal Powder can be applied by brush or fingertip and can be mixed with water and binding agent. A suitable fixative must be applied when your work is complete to avoid smearing and smudges. Cretacolor Charcoal Powder is available in 175g pots.
