A very very soft, very fine, fine point, very smooth, very flat pencil, with a little pressure applied…
How do I use the right softpencil?
Just, well, just…
…You’re doing nothing wrong.
The right softpencil can be hard to find, but a few years back, I found a new hardie to add to my toolbox, and it’s been one of my favourites ever since.
The ‘Pencil Soft’ softie has a super soft nib that you really cannot see until you use it. I often use a softpencil without really knowing how it will work, and still come out on top.

The test I made consists of comparing pencils to both softpencils and to a single solid colour softie, and I’ve done this by having someone draw a rectangle of paper on a piece of paper, with the centre just in the centre of the drawing. Then have the drawing and the softpencils sit right next to each other, with the pencils in contact with the canvas. The centre rectangle is then placed over the pencil softie in the center… then a line is drawn between the centre drawing and the centre softie. The pencils should touch with almost no movement, unless the pencil is held just off from
