Charcoal, and lots of it! Artifolk has a great choice of regular Coates charcoal sticks of assorted thicknesses, as well as compressed charcoal sticks. If you want to keep your hands cleaner, use a charcoal holder (for normal, thin charcoal only). There are also a number of charcoal drawing sets, from Derwent and Daler Rowney, including the chunky charcoal and graphite XL blocks. We do stock Tinted Charcoal Pencils in tins and single individual colours too.
