Derivan Liquid Pencil is an innovative new product that allows artists to create authentic lightfast graphite pencil effects and pencil sketches using a liquid graphite product. An artist can use Liquid Pencil for detail work as well as for covering and building up large areas quickly and easily. Derivan Liquid Pencil has been formulated to be easily thinned with water (for the rewettable formula) or MM9 Acrylic Painting Medium (to maintain permanency with the Permanent formula) to allow for the softest of colours to be applied with a brush, nib or other art tools. Using Liquid Pencil, artists now have a much wider scope for creating sketches. Due to a precisely balanced formulation, another great benefit of the Permanent Liquid Pencil is that it will burnish up in a similar manner to traditional graphite without smudging. In addition to being workable using erasers, Rewettable Liquid Pencil will allow artists to remove areas using water in a manner similar to watercolour techniques.
