Comments about Blick Studio Charcoal:
I am new to drawing, currently taking an internet class, and I found all my supplies in your internet shop, this charcoal being on the list. I live in a very rural area with no art classes or brick and mortar shops so finding your shop online (and Craftsy) has been most helpful. A web comparison indicated your products are at prices that were lower than I would have expected, having remembered paying for them at college stores for 2 of my now grown kids many years ago. Your shipping was quick and the items carefully packed to preserve integrity. On my very limited budget your shop has meant I can now pursue a hobby that has interested me for many years yet felt out of my reach. Thanks from this senior citizen!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Luscious texture, wide range of values
By Heath Quinn
from Woodstock NY
No knots or hard sections in these vine charcoals. They produce a wide range of values and line widths, depending on pressures and angles you use. Also, so far, no breaking during use, a first in my experience. Very happy. These are the best vine charcoals I've ever used.

Nice and smooth
I'm a broke college student and these are really nice for the price
Very nice charcol. I like extra soft.
from Queens, New York
The charcoal is very nice for drawing. I like the extra soft. It makes erasing very easy. I teach mostly with the extra soft charcoal because a swipe with a tissue will take away a mistake. The finished drawing can be permanent with fixative.

I use this charcoal in figure drawing. I find the hard Blick charcoal very smooth, but the hard vine does make a pretty soft line. I like the richness of the charcoal in spite of the lack of hardness.

This product is easy to work with while sketching from my paper to the canvas. Saves alot of time when I am trying to figure out my composition.
Nice black lincs.

Nicw black lines. Proper hardness. Great charcoal at a good price.
from Riften, NY
These charcoals make it easy to achieve those subtle gray tones.
from Minneapolis, MN
We are newbie artists, so my ratings as to whether this is better than another product mean NOTHING (but the form forced me to choose something). Our teacher recommended that we buy this product to draw a sketch on our canvas before painting over with acrylic. It was SO DARK. I pressed less firmly than I usually do, but did not use a "whisper-soft" touch, either. I ended up having to paint over the line it created 2 or 3 times in an yellow area of my painting. My children did not make this effort and they now have a black line through their sunny sky. Maybe it's my inexperience, but I am tempted to us a plain ole pencil for this particular task in the future.
Merchant response: For use on canvas underpainting, we would suggest a vine charcoal instead of willow. Vine charcoal is more gray than black. Also, a hard charcoal will produce an even lighter tone than soft, but may be slightly more difficult to draw with.
