Learn About Matisse Liquid Pencil

There is some hype about a new product….the Sharpie Liquid Pencil.  This is a fun item that writes like pencil and remains eraseable for 24 hours before it becomes permanent.

But wait!  This sounds familiar!  Matisse Derivan has been making a product called the liquid graphite pencil.  Although the Sharpie is great as an everyday writing utensil, the Matisse liquid pencil is made for artists.  It comes as a fluid so you can pour it onto your palette and use a brush.  In addition, there are 4 subtly shaded undertones and 2 neutral graphite shades to use.  You can use brushes, pen nibs, or any other mark-making tool.

The liquid pencil has a permanent and re-wettable formula.  The permanent formula is water-soluble and similar to acrylic.  The re-wettable formula is similar to watercolors in the sense that it can be thinned extensively with water or lifted with water.  You can even use a regular eraser.
