    • Hi Jerry,

      This course is in development and modules are released as they are developed. New modules will be released in two days. The first 14 days were released on April 1, 2018.

  1. I’m curious… is it possible to capture the details in texture using just one pencil and varying the pressure? Or will the tooth of the paper make it harder to do so?

  2. Matt my charcoal white pencil won’t go down very well, it’s like the surface is slippery and I’m not getting a lovely bright white like you do 😢

    Beth I got mine on wish but any art/craft shop should have them, have you been to spotlight?

    • Hi Diane,

      When using white charcoal and graphite together, you have be careful not to put too much graphite on the surface before applying the white charcoal.The white charcoal will not cover or go over the graphite very well. Do you think this is what is happening here?
