General’s Sketch and Wash Pencil

  • General’s Sketch and Wash Pencils are water-soluble graphite pencils that allow artists to lay down dark lines and then use a wet paintbrush to create dramatic washes of grey.
  • This all-surface, water soluble graphite pencil performs and looks like traditional graphite in its dry state.
  • These pencils can be used alongside watercolour pencils for shading and unique colour tones, and they are suitable for darkening lines and adding details on wet paper.
  • These versatile pencils are ideal for creating various artistic effects and are popular among artists for their flexibility in creating different textures and tones in their artwork.
  • When a wet brush is swept over the pencil lines, they dissolve entirely, allowing you to spread the liquid graphite across your design akin to paint. This technique enables the creation of bold, dark marks or various tonal values with a single brushstroke. The water bonds the graphite to your paper, ensuring that any added colour remains pure. Furthermore, this pencil can be utilized for alternative purposes, such as applying patterns directly onto painting surfaces instead of using graphite paper, and making marks on a wide range of surfaces including wood and fabric.
  • Use it on wet paper to darken lines and add details.
  • General’s Sketch and Wash Pencils are sold individually, per pencil.
