LYRA Rembrandt Sepia Pencils
Sepia light Dry. Clays and iron oxides of different shades combined with a mixture of plant-based binders. Sepia light, slightly darker than the sanguine pencil, is a perfect midway point; the shade which is still reddish and very intense is perfect for creating shadows when used together with the sanguine pencil. The 5mm core is rich in pigment and fragile due to its purity. It can be blended perfectly from its full, saturated tone to a mere veiling.
Sepia dark Dry has a warm brown tone, vaguely reddish, very similar to the mummy brown to achieve contrasts and give a marked depth to a drawing. Concentration is very high, pencil is very delicate and guarantees maximum intensity.
Sharpening with a knife creates a long tip which can be defined using sandpaper; perfect for hatching and chiaroscuro. they can be erased with a putty rubber proportionally to the intensity of the stroke. Use of a spray fixative is recommended
Sepia Oil. The same pigments as those used in the dry version, the same concentration, a plant-based oil binder and a minimal quantity of waxes constitute a product which can be used to get completely different strokes. Full-bodied, defined and rich strokes which are not blendable but can be layered and mixed into different tones by calibrating the pressure applied by the tip on the paper. Perfect pencils for sketches and outlines which stand out in cleanliness and intensity. The stroke adheres perfectly to the substrate, with total coverage, it is almost unerasable but can be diluted or blended with a brush moistened with linseed oil or other medium for oil colours. The round body in Mexican wood easily tempered lacquered natural protects the 5mm lead.
