The Artgraf Tailor Shape Water Soluble Block Earth Colours Set contains 6 tailor shape blocks in a variety of traditional earth colours. The set includes:
ArtGraf Tailor Shape Water Soluble Blocks are inspired by the traditional tailor's chalk. Essentially a block of water soluble pigment, these blocks can be used wet or dry to create marks and washes in a variety of natural colours. Soft and easy to apply, you can use these blocks dry for traditional drawing and sketching techniques. Apply water to the marks or lift colour directly from the block with a wet brush to create washes of colour - similarly to the way you would use a traditional watercolour pan. Use minimal water to create intense, rich, ink-like colour or use more water for more transparent washes.
Each Tailor Shape Block measures approximately 4.9cm x 4.1cm, and is 0.6 deep at its thickest point.
I received these for Christmas and was very thrilled with them. They are larger than I expected (actual tailor's chalk sized), but this was a lovely surprise. When used wet the colours are deep and true, you can also use them dry to draw with. Highly recommend. Avril Kay (Warrington, United Kingdom) on 16 Jan 2022
