This stunning collection of STABILO CarbOthello chalk-pastel pencils is available in a range of 60 beautiful color shades. They can be dry-blended or smudged with either the fingertips or a blending stump to create a variety of artistic effects. Dramatic results can be achieved when used on dark backgrounds and delicate papers, too. Areas or outlines can be lightened or highlighted using the white pencil. Partially aquarellable, the pigments can also be worked brush and water; the contours will remain visible. These premium chalk-pastels have high pigmentation with excellent light-fastness – and for superior results the finished artwork can be treated with a fixative.
Stabilo CarbOthello Pastels for fine detail
Stabilo CarbOthellos were originally called 'Coloured charcoal' and are a little softer than other pastel pencil brands (with the exception of the Caran Dache range), they blend really well and the colours are rich and highly pigmented offering a great choice of lights and darks. They evenly distribute the colour when used and are easy to blend with products such as sponges or the silicon and paper blenders. The collection has some colours that other pastel pencil sets do not have and they are ideal to have along side other ranges. Being aquarellable, they mix well with water but the colours are not as vibrant when they are wet. Diluting the pigment will also dilute the lightfastness of them too, the more you dilute the weaker the lightfastness will become. These pencils can be sharpened with a stabilo pencil sharpener, or with a craft knife allowing you to shape the tip to the length and point needed for those small areas as can be seen in the artwork below which was created by pastel artist John Graham.
