Product description

Derwent XL Charcoal Blocks 6pk will create bold, gestural drawings in rich, natural colours and add character to your piece. The set of 6 colours will create powerful lines to subtle gradients and sit very comfortably in the palm of your hand due to the chunky dimensions which enhance their balance and handling.

The set combines natural qualities of charcoal with the strength of a chunky block making for the perfect blend of rich tones and organic marks. The blocks are extremely responsive to variations of pressure and can create inspirational marks and an extensive range of tones. They also offer further potential as the blocks are water soluble too.

The rich, opaque charcoals can be layered up over different colours. Colours include: Ochre, Sanguine, Mars Violet, Sepia, Black & White.

  • Each stick measures 2 x 2 x 6 cm (0.8 x 0.8 x 2.4 inches)
  • Set of 6 Colours
  • Charcoal blocks are water soluble too
  • Protective tin

Derwent XL Charcoal Blocks Set is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely and chunky I love the XL charcoal. They can be messy but I put a piece of kitchen foil around so it keeps my hands clean. Great for covering a large area and the earthy colours create a unique look to any drawing. They are versatile with large area, sharp corners and square sides for added marking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile product, love them Great product, use as a block or paint wet, like a watercolour block. The graphite once dry on paper can be erased with a standard eraser. Very versatile and great colour selection, choices between set one and two, both have great natural colours. Although pricey they last ages if used like watercolour blocks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hit with my students These chunky charcoal bars are terrific for learning how to block in tone. I our instance, from observing the life model. They glide on, are easy to lift and respond to pressure. A good tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colours These charcoal have a lovely colour range that can be combined to get a variety of different tones. Also very big so will likely last quite a while. I enjoyed using these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charcoal Lovely chunky blocks of tinted charcoal in 5 shades. Sit well in the hand and have a soft texture. Various marks can be made by using sides, corners etc. Great for larger pieces of artwork giving quick results which are controlled and vibrant. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful to use. You have to be careful though as it is quite f Fab to use horribly expensive but I'd buy it again. Be careful it is super-fragile.
