Drawing Resources #13?!

Hello everyone!,
   When you use charcoal, do you wish you could add color to your work? When you try to use colored pencils with charcoal, do you smear your work around, ruining what you worked on? Do you wish there was color you can add to your charcoal art piece? No worries, there is something for you! Derwent makes colored charcoal pencils, or known as Tinted Charcoal! The charcoal pencils can be used with traditional charcoal, or with pencil sketches/drawings! When the charcoal pencil loses its tip, simply sharp the charcoal pencil with a sharpener, and you're good to go! Using these charcoal pencils are excellent to have in your drawing pencil set if you're looking for precision while applying charcoal to your art piece! If you have any questions, please feel free contact me by leaving a comment below, or e-mail me! I hope this blog was helpful! Enjoy! Thank you!:

Not only will you create a "glistened" effect, but you can create dynamic/contrasts within your art piece (e.g., jewels reflecting light while the jewel is on a dull colored cloth)!
