Pitt Monochrome

The Pitt Graphic range provides all creative artists with an extensive assortment of pencils and crayons in different grades of hardness for sketching, graphic design and shading work. The "green pencil from Faber", which was already being mentioned with approval by Van Gogh and Goethe, has now become part of everyday life. The 16 different grades of hardness range from a delicate grey hue to a deep graphite black, and offer artists a wide range of possibilities. The Graphite Pure leads are ideal for creating contrasts and shading extended areas. These pencils offer unparalleled possibilities for spontaneous expression, creating different effects based on the pressure applied and grade of hardness. The pencils are sharpened in the same way as a normal lead pencil. The graphite crayons are an ideal and very economical medium for working on very large sketches and areas.

Pitt Monochrome artists‘ pencils and crayons

The monochrome colours of sanguine and sepia can be found in life drawing classes at almost every art school. Enhanced with white, and with the shadows deepened with black, they lend vitality, liveliness and expression to the drawings. This old tradition of figure drawing dates back to the Renaissance. Faber-Castell's PITT monochrome crayons hark back to this long tradition of figure drawing, which is why the crayons designed for sketching are harder than conventional pastel crayons. For this reason, the lines do not disappear completely when smudged. The sanguine and sepia crayons are supplemented by oil-free and oil-based drawing pencils for sketching details and lines.

Pitt Monochrome charcoal

Natural charcoal is the oldest sketching and drawing material in the world. The greyish-blue shade glides softly across the paper, rubs and smudges easily, and can be erased without difficulty and repeatedly overlaid. Many art students are taught first to make sketches in natural charcoal, even when working on canvas, before further elaborating the details of the picture. Faber-Castell has developed two further products based on this classic drawing material, namely pressed charcoal sticks and pressed charcoal pencils. Ground natural charcoal is enriched with black pigment, and then compressed with clay to form a crayon. This results in a significantly blacker shade, which is available in 5 different grades of hardness.
