One thing Viarco is very good at is finding new forms in which to use graphite as a drawing tool. This little tin holds a cake of water-soluble graphite that you can use like watercolor paint! Just wet your brush and you're ready to go. And of course, once it's dry, it'll eraser like a normal pencil would.
Viarco is Portugal's one and only pencil factory. Founded in 1907, Viarco has done a beautiful job of preserving and sharing their Portuguese heritage while also constantly innovating unique new things for both writing and art-making.
