Cretacolor Art Chunky Colored Charcoal

Following the success of their Chunky Charcoal, Cretacolor has created an entire range of colored charcoal with the same smooth character and chunky 3.5" x .75" diameter shape and size. These all new art sticks are also water-soluble so they can blend wet or dry, be ground down to make powdered color to create washes and glazes, or used in conjunction with other media for artistic variations. Available individually or in a set that includes all 10 colors and a stick of Chunky Graphite and Chunky Charcoal.
