Generals Charcoal Pencils Now Available in the UK
Hi guys and gals. I just want to let all of you know that have been interested in the much talked about Generals Charcoal pencils that you can now get them here http://www.lavenderhillcolours.com/p...ing-equipment/ They are available in 6B, 4B, 2B, HB and 2H.
For those who haven't heard about these pencils they are the tool of choice by Henry Yan and many other renowned american artists and schools. They are very smooth and not at all gritty like other brands here in the UK. The wood is also soft allowing for easy sharpening. For those who are fans of Henry Yan they also have Smooth newsprint and Strathmore smooth drawing paper that Henry uses.

Just wondering if you know if Lavnedarhill sell glass palattets? I saw a post on their facebook page a couple of months ago about them selling them, but cant find it on their site. Also not going to Lavanedar for the time being due to a few issues.
Hey Schnaps, yes Lavender Hill are selling glass palettes. They had one in stock and are waiting on some materials to come in before making more but if you email them at firstname.lastname@example.org with what you want they will be able to let you know when they can supply and costs. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the help Marian, much appreciated.
Just out of curiosity, these particular pencils have been available in the US through amazon.com for some time.
Are they not available via the UK version of amazon?
Hey TeddyBlues, sorry for my delay in replying. The answer is yes they are on Amazon UK but it was an American company selling them so shipping used to be a lot and you would have to wait a while for them to arrive. Also you couldn't buy singles of one pencil grade only multipacks which included pencil grades you may not want. Hope that helps.
