These hexagonal Gradient Sketching Pencils come in a range of graphite grades for all drawing styles and techniques. The light to dark palette will guide you through the grades from fine and precise to soft and free.
Available in three colour ways; pink, blue and green, the palettes were selected from single Pantone swatch cards to create a smooth and subtle gradient.
Block Design's idea for the Gradient Sketching Pencils was conceived during a weekly life drawing class. "Having had to search through my traditional grey set each time I needed a 6B in place of a HB or 2H, it occurred to me there must be an easier way to differentiate the pencils. The constant scramble for the required pencil slowed down my sketching, interrupting the creative flow.”
These pencils are manufactured in the UK by family business Chambers Pencils. The Chambers family has been part of the pencil industry for over 100 years. They still make and ship all their pencils from their Nottingham factory.
