Go big with your charcoal art
Great for doing large scale work, since the chunkies can cover large areas of paper very quickly. Makes super dark marks, are relatively easy to control, and is versatile. Also erases easily. Only drawback is it erases and lifts off the paper too easily, as I sometimes want the charcoal to stick fast to the surface. Other than that, ideal for going large in a short amount of time.

I am new to charcoal, and these colored charcoals were ordered because I teacher in a class I'm taking used them. Love the colors and am just starting to integrate them into my mixed media pieces. So far so good. The size is nice and I have been keeping them in the individual cases to avoid charcoal on my fingers.
Great range of colors!

The best compressed!
By Mark Maker
from Albuquerque, NM
I use this charcoal for strong lines in drawings. It has just the best working characteristics of any compressed charcoal that I have tried. I have ordered it more than once. It's just that good.

Great product!!! Super fun!
from Ventura, CA
My favorite product of the year. LOVE IT and use it all the time. It is smooth, glides over the paper and blends to a feather like quality. Acts and feels like super light pastel and doesn't change color much with setting spray. I HIGHLY recommend this product for people who like to use charcoal but want to add a bit of color to their work.
Once you go chunky you never go back...
from Los Angeles, CA
I got tired of breaking my charcoal and graphite sticks by pressing too hard. I got this set and said goodbye to that problem... It's easy to get fine lines as well as big areas shaded/covered in no time. The graphite stick has lasted me a long time and is my favorite thing to draw with.
