Graphitint is an exciting range of tinted, water-soluble graphite pencils that combine the drama and creativity of graphite with a hint of soft, subtle color. Contains the following colors: Port, aubergine, dark indigo, slate green, ivy, chestnut, cool brown, cocoa, storm, midnight black, cloud grey and cool grey. The Derwent Graphitint range of tinted water-soluble graphite pencils are ideal for artists looking to add a colourful dimension to their graphite drawings. Graphite was first discovered in the 1500s in Borrowdale in the Lake District, a stones throw from Derwents first pencil factory, and the company produced the first graphite pencil in the UK. The versatile Graphitint pencils can be used wet or dry. When used dry it provides a graphite blackness to a drawing with a subtle hint of colour, however when water is added the tint transforms into rich, vibrant colour.
