The Lyra Rembrandt Dark Sepia pencil is a dry blendable pencil. It is very well suited to landscapes, life drawings and shading. It is a traditional monochrome drawing pencil which is water soluble and the finished work must be protected with a fixative.
The Lyra Rembrandt Carbon Pencil has a perfectly combined core of charcoal and graphite. An extremely fine grained core means a smooth, clean laydown. The work can be smeared with fingers or paper sticks. For softer grades the use of a fixative is recommended but not essential.
