Tips and Tricks
There are many ways to use graphite pencils to benefit your drawing styles. The most effective way is to use a mixture of lead grades to outline your project and layer different shades. We recommend using hard grades (9H to H) for adding lighter shades to your art piece. Softer grades (HB to 6B) are ideal for adding darker tones and depth to the project. It's always best to work from light to dark when working with pencils, providing you with more flexibility to make changes if you make a mistake. You can also use blending tools such as a tortillon to merge shades together. This works best on thicker papers or card stock.
Did you know that you can also use a paint brush for blending graphite pencil? A short bristled brush works best and helps to disguise any white areas of paper that might show through softer lead grades.
