What supplies do you need to draw with charcoal? Simply put, you really only need charcoal and paper but I thought I would put together a list of the supplies I like to use. I recommend having vine charcoal and compressed charcoal (pencils or sticks). Blending stumps and paper towel or tissue. For erasers I like having a kneaded eraser, an eraser pencil (for details) and a gum or white eraser for larger areas. For paper, you can use bristol, watercolor, drawing paper or pastel paper. What other supplies do you like to use when working with charcoal?
