What are they for?Tombow Mono 100 Graphite Pencils are a magnificent choice for aspiring and professional artists. They can be used to draw virtually anything including sketches, portraits, engineering plans, architecture, scenery, animal life and more. This set includes a full range of lead grades, providing you with all that you need to produce a complete masterpiece.
The best way to use graphite pencils is to work from hard grades to soft grades. The reason for this is because harder grades like 9H, produce much lighter shades than softer grades like 6B (which is the darkest grade in this set). We recommend using harder grades to sketch the outline of your subject and then work your way to darker/softer grades to build shape and depth. You can also use blending tools such as a tortillon to merge shades together.
Top TipDid you know there is a wide range of everyday household objects you can use to blend? A paint brush with short bristles, cotton buds, cotton wool and even tissue paper!
