Pencils are still one of the most popular mediums for artists. Most of us learn our drawing skills with a pencil and favour them alongside charcoal for sketching.
Pencils are normally made with a small cylinder of graphite and clay surrounded by a wooden casing to grip.
Pencils are all marked on a European system called the degree scale where H is hardest and B is blackest.
Pencils can be marked as;
9H, 8H, 7H, 6H, 5H, 4H,3H,2H, H F,HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B ,5B ,6B ,7B ,8B ,9B
H pencils have a higher concentrate of clay than graphite, whereas the B pencils have a much lower percentage of clay.The B pencils make soft, dark marks, whereas the H pencils have a much harder, lighter mark.
The F pencil stands for fine point, which is slightly harder than the HB making it a good writing pencil.
