Sketching & Drawing Pencil - Sanguine Medicis (618)
This Conte a Paris Sanguine Medicis Pencil is the darkest of the "Sanguine" pencils and has a little less red oxide. It has similar properties to the other "Sanguine" pencils in that with a sharpened lead the drawing is accurate, the colour is transparent and if the work is lightly drawn, the pencil lets the texture of the paper appear. With a half-worn lead, the opacity increases with the pressure exerted on the pencil. Length of the pencil is 176.5 mm, diameter of the pencil is 8.5 mm and the diameter of the lead is 5 mm.
