XL Gripper — Designed to work with the Derwent XL Graphite and XL Charcoal Sticks, the XL Gripper offers a steady, comfortable grip. Plus, it helps keep artists hands clean while working.
Groove Cube — Create expressive lines in your drawings with the Groove Cube. Just run a Derwent XL Graphite or Charcoal block along one of the ridged sections to carve grooves in the block's surface. Four different creative marks can be made.
Sprinkler — Produce a fine graphite or charcoal powder for drawings and multimedia work with the Derwent XL Sprinkler. Simply rub the XL Block against the Sprinkler's fine mesh surface to create a fine art powder. Perfect for blending and creating large backgrounds, this handy tool can also be used with pastels, regular graphite blocks, and willow charcoal, for finger painting or to add texture to artwork. Adding water to the powder makes a painterly wash.
