How is drawing charcoal made?
Charcoal is used in art for drawing, making rough sketches in painting. Charcoal is a blackish residue of impure carbon obtained by removing water and other volatile constituents of animal and vegetable substances. It is usually produced by heating wood in the absence of oxygen, but sugar charcoal, bone charcoal, and others can be produced as well. The light, black, porous material is 85% to 98% carbon, and resembles coal.
