The thing you don’t want, which is the thing that most people who are writing want, is an even line. I want it to surprise me sometimes because you will get lines that you didn’t think of as being good lines on handwriting but that are great lines for drawing. And until next time when we’ll have another Stationery Test Drive with something equally enjoyable and wonderful, I’ve been Vishal. It was a lot of fun to do this, it was great to know that I could just go down the street and get them at any time and not worry that I had to you know find a specific kind of pencil or a really expensive one, like a Palomino. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.Rest assured, this partnership with Inkarto guarantees the authenticity and reliability of the products you purchase.

I think now it’s actually available in the US in Walmart under their local in-house brand which is Casemate. Vishal: When you’re working on a deadline, you have to rely on things that you have rather than on the best tool for the job all the time.Samir: We actually brought this up, this particular process that Vishal is describing in our episode on the Staedtler Colour Pencils. Maybe some of the details of the actual pencils get a bit hidden on camera certainly, but in person and in print you can see the range of values that you can get out of it, without too much effort.

When Hindustan Pencils started in 1958, the wood that would often be used I believe is the Deodar which is a tropical tree that’s local to India. Vishal: For good handwriting, which I don’t possess and maybe Minjal does, so she can show us some handwriting. I know instinctively, I can’t verbalize this but I know where the edges are, where the points are and look I can get different things based on just that intuitive notion of what I want and in there I will add a strand of hair that is thicker, then a strand of hair that’s thinner.

I love the range of mark making, of value, of texture that you can get out of it for fairly low effort, fairly low amounts of time.

The "skin" coloured pencil was also the subject of a campaign by anti-discrimination activist group Brown n' Proud. This doesn’t look like it’s done with a pencil but it has and it’s been done with these very same pencils.So there’s about five or six different timbers that go into these and the wood that goes into the Nataraj Pencils has changed probably two or three times in the last 60 years. I don’t even remember, but it’s maybe a dollar or so for a box of 20 of these which comes with the sharpener and an eraser. And for understanding that you should see our episode on the Nataraj Plasto eraser which has already been published.
