FAQs about Sketching Pencils

We process payments through PayPal. You may use Visa, MasterCard and American Express via PayPal.


A pencil sketch is a sketch made with a pencil, generally using a graphite pencil. A sketch is a rough or a preliminary drawing.

The best way to prevent smudges from occurring to your drawings is by adding a fixative once finished. The fixative will create a barrier between the graphite and anything that might come in contact with it. In addition you can also put wax paper, frames, or page protectors between the pages of your sketchbook to prevent further smudging.
