The Nitram Baton Deluxe Charcoal Holder is a unique charcoal drawing device that uses the Nitram Mignonette 4mm square profile charcoal sticks. Five Mignonette sticks are included in the set.
This deluxe charcoal holder creates a unique drawing experience. The device uses Nitram’s Mignonette charcoal - extra soft charcoal that creates rich, dark blacks. These sticks can easily be replaced and have a velvety, smooth texture that lends itself well to the gestural strokes used in life drawing.
The Nitram Baton Deluxe Charcoal Holder is approximately 224mm long and is presented in a matt black card box with a slide out tray. It will hold refills up to 6mm in diameter.
Replacement packs of Nitram Mignonette Charcoal Baton Refills 7 x 4mm are available separately.
I find its larger design excellent for keeping the side of the hands and wrist away from smudging
For me, it keeps the charcoal stick at an angle, which is good
The charcoal stick creates no dust and makes cleaner lines Alexis Moore (Coral Gables, USA) on 25 Sep 2020
