MONO Drawing Pencil FAQs
What’s the best kind of paper to use with my drawing pencils?
When practicing and making rough sketches, you can use any type of paper. However, if you’re making a detailed pencil drawing, it’s best to choose an archival paper made from 100% rag for detailed drawings that will last and not turn yellow or become brittle over time. You can also get acid-free paper made from wood fibers, and other cellulose materials such as linen and bamboo.
We also like Legion Paper’s Stonehenge series, Arches 140 lb hot press watercolor paper, and Fabriano Bristol paper. Look for books of paper samples at fine art stores to test papers. Both Canson and Strathmore have such books so that you can try a variety of papers. Explore other drawing and watercolor papers to discover what works best for you!
How do I sharpen my MONO Drawing Pencils?
Always use a hand-held sharpener, like the metal one included in the set. Tombow’s MONO Drawing Pencils are extra-refined, with high-density graphite that sharpens evenly without the worry of the lead breaking. Our tip for sharpening all pencils (graphite and colored) is to keep a small container handy for the pencil shavings, so you can draw or color anywhere.
