Faber Castell Matt Graphite Pencils

Faber Castell Matt Graphite Pencils
Faber are experiencing high demand for this product but are working to renew stocks.  We are accepting orders and they will be dispatched on a first come first serve basis when supplies come in.  These are expected in September.
These new and innovative Matt Graphite pencils from Faber solve a very real problem for the modern artist and graphic designer. The glossy quality of graphite means light is reflected and,  unless properly lit, detail can be lost.  This is especially true when a work needs to be digitised as scanning or photographing will inevitably water down an original pieces impact. 

Matt graphite negates this problem and leaves a deeper, darker and much more true-to-the-original quality.
