Charcoal is made by heating wood in the absence of oxygen, this process removes moisture leaving carbon. Marks from charcoal are very black but tend to smudge. Finished drawings should be treated with a fixative.

Pastels offer a further form of drawing media. They are made using finely powdered pigments and different types of binder. Soft pastels are powdery and blend easily and hard pastels contain a higher level of binder for more detailed drawing. A watercolour pastel contains a water soluble binder and oil pastels contain a non-drying oil and wax binder giving them a soft, buttery consistency. As pastels tend to smudge easily the finished drawings should also be treated with a fixative.

Drawing pens and nibs, fibre-tipped pens and fine technical drawing pens provide the artist with black lines and a choice of colours. The water-soluble colouring pens can be blended with a wet paint brush and used in combination with pens containing permanent inks. Back to top
