General’s Compressed White Charcoal Pencils

General’s Charcoal White Charcoal Pencils #558
​Use these water-soluble General Pencil White Charcoal Pencils to sketch and draw to create white areas, adjust values, or to create highlights. These pencils are excellent for final highlights, and for drawing on dark or colored papers for dramatic results. Additional uses: Apply patterns on dark painting surfaces, cloth or suede, or as a transfer pencil. The white charcoal brushes off, and can be erased from papers or fabrics with a soft, white eraser. Additionally, it can be worked directly over black charcoal.
These handcrafted charcoal pencils are encased in cedar for durability and strength. They offer an extra smooth, bright white pigment with an easy laydown. Create dramatic renderings on dark papers and fabrics or bring out highlights over black charcoal drawings. Try them with a wet brush for soft, flowing wash effects.
