Best Brand for Sketching!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Derwent Charcoal Pencils Tin with Pencil Sharpener (Set of 6) (Office Product)
I've used Derwent pastels and charcoal before and they have always been of an exceptional quality and are most certainly my favourite brand to get for a high quality final piece. The charcoal being in pencil form definitely helps for a more comfortable and less messy feel and obviously much harder to accidentally break in your hand! I haven't ever bought sketching materials online before and I was concerned that during transport the charcoal inside would break how wrong I was - the pencils themselves were in a tin which was placed in its packaging which was wrapped in corrugated card which was then covered in a mass of bubble wrap and was final wrapped in its brown paper and cello tape!!!! I think even if it dropped of the back of a lorry and run over by the car behind, they'd still be intact!!
