This all-surface, water soluble graphite pencil performs and looks like traditional graphite in its dry state. If you run a wet brush over the pencil lines they completely dissolve, and you can brush the liquid graphite throughout your design like paint. Create bold, dark marks or several tonal values with the stroke of a brush. Water adheres the graphite to your paper so you can add color over it and your color stays pure. Additional uses: Apply patterns on painting surfaces using this pencil instead of graphite paper. Round, Matte Black Finish, Aquarelle/Watersoluble Graphite, Marks on most surfaces such as wood and fabric. Made with genuine Sustained Yield Incense Cedar Wood.
