Graphitint pencils, I use when I need to draw in dry medium. they have lovely earth tones.. here is my review on those beautiful sturdy pencils..
as the company claims in their description:
- It can be Use Wet or Dry
- The versatile Graphitint pencils can be used wet or dry.
When used dry it provides a graphite blackness to a drawing with a subtle hint of colour, however when water is added the tint transforms into rich, vibrant colour.
- Expressive Lines and Colourful Wash Effects
Graphitint has the same properties as the Derwent water-soluble sketching pencils with an added colour tint.
- The soft cores create soft smudge-able lines and the wide strips are ideal for freestyle sketching, bold, expressive lines and a fast even lay down of tone.
- The pencils can be blended together for a selection of added tints and hues and this can be achieved by smudging together with fingers or with a Derwent blender pencil or paper stump.
- When water is added the graphite dissolves into rich, colourful tones, and the different brushes of the waterbrush set helps to create a range of wash effects.
- Once the sketches are down on paper the pencils can be sharpened to a fine point to add the final detail.

Now, here its my reviews..
Since they have already summed up in quite a detailed description,
I have nothing more to say on this, i loved these pencils they are smooth, give a brilliant, vivid washes, i also used them as dry sketching tools. I use water brush pens for adding the wash.
here are some examples that I created with Dewent Graphitint pencils.
I love do quick sketches with Derwent pencils.. 🙂
