No.930 Japanese Iken Charcoal - Linden

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 Linden timber is supremely soft and smooth with a feel like soft pastel. A perfect charcoal for drawing directly rather than layering with a real place in the range for modelling moody lost edges. The tonal extension is more limited with the darkest values tending toward silvery dark greys. Our tests were performed on Canson C.A.Grain 220gsm.

Each stick measures approximately 6mm in width 160mm in length and is surprisingly straight for a natural product. They are sold as a packet of 3 sticks.
