No.860 Japanese Iken Charcoal - Buckeye

The IKEN range of charcoal sticks are a long awaited addition to the usual willow and compressed varieties. Featuring unique timbers and quality of production they broaden the creative potential of this simplest of artist tools.

The Buckeye timber is the closest to what you would describe as a medium density however still maintaining the silky smooth feel of the IKEN range. This is the perfect choice for the artist who wants the charcoal line to dominate over modeling. Lines are clear and precise with the darkest grey/black tone in the range. Our tests were performed on Canson C.A.Grain 220gsm.

Try mixing this charcoal with the soft modelling of the Linden timber charcoal for soft atmospheric edges against crisper marks.
Each stick measures approximately 5mm in width 160mm in length and is surprisingly straight for a natural product. They are sold as a packet of 3 sticks.
