For the discerning artist that requires a rich black for drawing, then Nitram B is the answer.
It is very soft, yet is still able to carry a point for working rich blacks into the paper or canvas.
This medium soft charcoal is the one most preferred for drawing and sketching. Nitram HB’s superior hold is perfect for homogenizing tones and retaining tonal detail.
Nitram H can be sharpened to an extra fine point for creating fine detail in your drawing. Also, the unique hardness of Nitram H makes lighter and mid tones easier to attain.
The advantage of Nitram is its ability to not crumble or skip when used expressively.
Nitram Charcoal has the advantage of rich blacks and a wider range of shades.
This helps the artist to refine the values that will later define the finished piece.
Nitram’s superb quality ensures that it does not crumble under pressure so you can express yourself with confidence.
