These are tinted graphite pencils with just a hint of color. They are very easy to use, blend well, and according to the box are also water soluble but I haven't tried them in that format yet. They add just enough color to be non-threatening, but can add a new dimension to your Zentangles.
This weeks Diva Challenge was to use the new official tangle Fife. Fife is a great tangle because not only is it easy and fast, but it has the potential for tons of tangleations. Here is the tile I created using Fife and my new Graphitint pencils.
As is the case with many of my tiles, I started out with one vision and ended up with something totally different. When I saw that this tile was heading towards being a monotangle I knew that each ribbon would need something to define it and that's where my new Graphitint pencils came into play. I love the result!
