Wide pencil leads to cover.
- View SourceHi All,
I've been looking out for clay-related things again. You must know
the polyclay pencil project that Sue Heaser put up at the BPCG
website. The project uses 'clutch pencil' leads in a clay cover,
which can be sharpened just like an ordinary pencil.
I've found a brand of leads which not only come in several colours
and 3 'blacknesses' of graphite, but they're nicely chunky - almost
1/4inch in diameter!
The brandname is Koh-i-noor and lots of art materials suppliers stock
them - including the one I use - Ken Bromley Ltd - who have a
Check 'Sketching materials & Accessories' in the index.
The leads are a touch expensive at nearly a pound apiece (they're in
boxes of 6)- but should last a long time.
