Charcoal
Charcoal comes in two main forms,
vine
charcoal and
compressed
charcoal.
Soft, medium, and hard weights.
Compressed vs. Vine
Compressed charcoal is charcoal powder mixed with a
gum binder
and then compressed into round or square sticks. The amount of binder added determines the "
hardness
" of the charcoal. Ex. your charcoal pencil!
Vine charcoal is created by
slow burning sticks of wood.
We are going to use
soft
vine charcoal for your projects.
Why Vine Charcoal?
Soft vine
charcoal is easier to apply evenly onto the surface of your paper since it's not
compressed
. It doesn't take much pressure or force to make a mark, and because of this, it is much easier to
erase
and
smudge
than medium or hard types of charcoal.
Still Life
A still life painting or photograph is the study of
inanimate objects.
These objects are typically those of "
everyday,
" natural or man made objects such as fruit, dishes, cups, and plants.
Charcoal Reductions
