Charcoal

 Charcoal is a popular material with both students and artists used in art for making rough sketches in painting and also completion of a drawing or painting. It is usually be preserved by the application of a fixative. Artists charcoal is generally available in three forms:

  • Vine Charcoal: Also known as Natural Charcoal is created by burning sticks of wood (usually willow or Tilia twigs) in airtight conditions into soft, medium, and hard consistencies. As such, The thickness of the charcoal sticks depends on the thickness of the twigs. Bamboo charcoal is the principal tool in Japanese Sumi-e art. 

  • Compressed charcoal: Charcoal powder mixed with a binder (usually clay) compressed into round or square sticks. The amount of binder determines the hardness of the stick. Compressed charcoal is also used in charcoal pencils.

  • Powdered Charcoal is often used to "tone" or cover large sections of a drawing surface. Drawing over the toned areas will darken it further, but the artist can also lighten (or completely erase) within the toned area to create lighter tones.
