Used along with, or in place of tusche (lithographic ink), these dense, black crayons are especially for sketching directly on a lithographic stone, screen, or grained paper master for lithographic printing. Ideal for drawing on paper as well.
These crayons are similar to lithographic pencils, but do not have a pencil shaft which gives stiffness to the crayon.
Litho crayons may be thinned as required and worked with a pen or with a brush. Corrections can be made with lino needles, burin scrapers or with special correcting crayons made of compressed pumice stone. Suitable for covering large, flat areas.
