Graphitint is a unique range of tinted Graphite that combines the drama and creativity of pencil drawings with a hint of soft, subtle colour. This range is excellent if you want to introduce a little colour to your graphite drawings. If used dry, Graphitint provides a slight hint of colour. When water is applied the pale tones are transformed into rich, vibrant colours. Graphitint has the same properties as our 4B Watersoluble Sketching pencil so it will appeal to artists looking to add a colourful dimension to their graphite drawings but retain all the familiar qualities of their favourite graphite pencil.
In this clip artist (and Derwent Product Manager) Sarah Taylor draws a fish using the Graphitint pencils on watercolour paper.
