THE PENCIL SHAVING
Ideas and Tips
I can modestly brag, that this drawing technique I devised myself. This idea took into my head quite independently.
Once I sharpened a pencil. When I wiped the knife on the paper I found out the highly interesting track there.
The basic idea lies in the fact that the slate-pencil is converted into the powder, and is droped to the paper. Then the powder must be rubbed into the paper with the same knife. May be medical scalpel you will find more convenient.
You can explore the height of the pencil above the paper, tilt of it, shape of the knife blade, its sharpness. These are the important things.
Practice makes perfect. It will help to answer to any further questions.
See the picture below which can come out as a result.
