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.
Why Pure? Well that exactly what this product from Faber is. A thick, wood free stick of pure graphite. Covered in a thin coating for clean use , the sticks are excellent for detailed sketching or shading large areas.
They can be sharpened like any pencil and come in 4 grades (HB,3B,6B,9B).
