Charcoal Powder is a pure artist quality material that is ideal for quickly toning large areas and rendering light and dark values in tonal areas. It is traditionally used in drawing and can be applied, erased and manipulated in a variety of ways to achieve great results. Use with willow or compressed charcoal, or apply with a paint brush when combined with a Binder Medium.
Note: This product should be used in a well-ventilated area. Dust masks are recommended when making pouches or using directly from the jar. All charcoal should be sealed with a spray fixative, which should always be done outdoors.
Finally, darker tonal details can be added, to really make your portrait pop.
Charcoal Powder can be mixed with Binder Medium until it's a paint-like consistency. Use this to paint on dark, fine details, that cannot be readily achieved with charcoal sticks.
