Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils offer a new twist on one of the earliest drawing mediums. Natural charcoal particles are mixed with a small amount of pigment and the finest clays to extend creative possibilities.
These tinted charcoal colors smudge and blend beautifully to produce deep, rich tones. Unwanted color can be lifted out quickly with an eraser. The pencils' natural water solubility creates delicate wash effects.

Unique Product -- Very Nice!
By Tom, pencil artist

Comments about Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils:
I teach drawing classes and like to find different products for my students to use. As far as I know, no one else makes tinted charcoal. They are just like any other charcoal pencil you might have used with a subtle hint of color. These are very nice for creating something a little out of the ordinary. Although charcoal and charcoal pencils are water soluble, they don't give off a clean look with water.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently picked up drawing again in the past two years and really like drawing with charcoal. I went to order my usual black and white charcoal pencils and found these tinted charcoal pencils. Now I have the color I love wiith the blendability of charcoal.

I have only played with these a little bit. The color seems subtle, but effective.

Derwent Products - Excellent - Both the Charcoal and Inktens
from Albuquerque NM
The charcoal water soluble pencils are used, sometimes in combination with the inktense pencils, for sketches and drawing. They create incredible effects.

I looked forever to find the right set of tinted charcoal pencils. I finally found this one at a great price. Once I submitted my order, it took only days to get it. It came just as expected. Works well, blends perfectly. The only con to me was the lack of vibrancy in the colors, which is also difficult to find. However, I still love them and love how smoothly the color is applied. Would recommend this product!

Fun and Interesting
from New Jersey
I absolutely love these pencils. I bought a 6-pack from a big box craft store and after playing with them for a weekend I had to get the 24 pack, thankfully Blick had them for a good price (not a great one but a good one). The pencils have a nice, subdued color, def go well with charcoal drawing. You can get a nice range by adding white or mixing colors. As a couple of people have mentioned, sharpening these can be a little goosey. I tried a few sharpeners with poor to ok results, than I discovered the General's All-Art sharpener (carried by Blick for a great price) and my sharpening issues greatly improved. If you are going to buy these pencils than I strongly suggest buying a few of the All-Art sharpeners to go with them. The All-Art sharpener returns the factory point (short and stubby). I still have sharpening issues with one color but the rest seem to be holding up just fine. For the one pencil I'm still having issues with I just use a craft knife to sharpen it. Overall, I really like these pencils. They are a nice departure from regular colored pencils or plain black charcoal. Oh...these are soft core, so treat them carefully.
