Carbon Dust

(Jay scull by Karla Beatty, Carbon dust)

ONE SEAT OPENED - ONE SEAT OPENED - ONE SEAT OPENED
Push your drawing skills into a new realm. Carbon dust has been a mainstay medium for medical and scientific illustrators for more than 75 years. Using a combination of pencil lines and dust "washes" applied with brushes, this medium produces rich, tonal renderings with the value range of charcoal and the precision of watercolor. You’ll be introduced to the various tools associated with carbon dust, including carbon pencils, dust, brushes, blenders and fixative. Choose a subject well suited to the technique and learn to use methodical layering to create a flawless continuous tone. Complete the finer details with pencil for a finished carbon-dust rendering.
