great for free flow drawing

Comments about Bob's Fine Vine Charcoal:
I ordered this based on a recommendation from my art teacher, not knowing what to expect. A large bagful of various sizes of burnt sticks was delivered and I thought I made a mistake. But, I love free flow drawing with these, as you can simplywipe off any errors with fingers or paper towel, and correct. Yes they are messy, but I find I draw more freely knowing how easy it is to adjust. I even used it on top of an acrylic painting that was boring, to add a punch- which it did, and then sprayed it with fixative to hold it together. It worked and I plan to use this over other mediums in the future, as I love to mix things up. Note you need to apply fixative or it will come off on everything.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

As advertised. Very soft, huge messy bag. Very nice in the right hands. I need more experience to give a proper rating for this product.

I like the variety of sizes in this bag. They are soft and nice to sketch with. There area more pieces in this bag than I expected.
Bob's is The Best

Not only do you get a great assortment, you get a great product! I absolutely love working with this charcoal and own way too much of it! I work large so the bigger sizes tend to be my favorite. The square shape is great because you can use those edges to make crisp and straight lines and the flat edges for broad lines and tones. They seem to last forever and create great tones from light grey to deep blacks! I recommend them for all of my drawing students and whomever I meet that also enjoys working with charcoal. I also suggest a chamois for lifting and moving tones.

Love the different sizes included in the bag. You also get a wonderful range in value. Erases really well.
A great product and was as advertised
I purchased a bag of Bob's charcoal on a whim, and now I am hooked! This charcoal provides a nice, rich mid-tone and is very consistent in texture; slightly crumbly but not gritty. It glides onto the paper beautifully. I truly love this charcoal and feel it's a fantastic value for the quality and amount you get! I've been recommending it to everyone I can!
