Carbon Pencil - derived from traditional charcoal, but much stronger, this lead does not crumble or leave your hands dirty. Its delicate and highly detailed finish enables all types of perspectives to be drawn accurately
Charcoal Pencil - this gives the clean, dense finish of an intense black. Its special characteristic is that it does not break, making it easy to transport.
Graphite Pencil - particularly smooth, this pencil will not scratch your support but slides over it
Sanguine Pencil - The colour of the Conté à Paris "Sanguine" pencil is a deep "rust" and its lines are easily blended.
White Pencil - best used with a sharp lead, this pencil gives a clear line with a transparent colour.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they’re now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a “toy store for artists.” 80 years in and they’re still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
