Listing Detail Tabs

A dermatograph is a type of pencil that is made of tightly-rolled paper and is round in section. It is rolled in such a way that an embedded string can be pulled to slowly tear off parts of the paper, exposing more of the marking pigment.
Because of its construction, dermatographs do not need sharpening, unlike traditional pencils.

Because dermatographs are not sharpened, the tip is usually left blunt or rounded. This makes it easily writable on the following material:

Skin, China, Ceramic, Glass, Metal, Vinyl
Cellophane, etc.

These would also have been used in the original form of tattooing to colour in the tattoo.

We have 36 boxes of black pencils. Each box contains 12 pencils.

This sale is for one box of 12 pencils. If you require more than one box please advise at time of purchase.
