      Nitram Academie Charcoal


      Known for its superb quality, Nitram Charcoal is the preferred charcoal of professional artists, academies, and ateliers. Nitram’s time-tested processes ensure that it does not crumble, skip or break under pressure and can be sharpened to a point for fine work. Never dusty or powdery, Nitram comes in a range of softness.

      Nitram B (Soft) is very soft, yet is still able to carry a point for working rich blacks into the paper or canvas.

      Nitram HB (Medium) charcoal is the most preferred for drawing and sketching. This charcoal has superior hold for homogenizing tones and retaining tonal details.

      Nitram H (Hard) can be sharpened to an extra fine point for creating fine detail in your drawing. The unique hardness of this charcoal makes lighter and mid tones easier to attain.

      Each package contains five (5) batons

      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.
