Casting Graphite Forms

I have seen some lovely pencils made from cast graphite, does anyone know what the mixture is for making this moldable graphite?

Thanks,
Peter

Re: Casting Graphite Forms

This is the material I am talking about, https://www.thegrommet.com/batle-stu...cil-small-line

Does anyone know what it is? Obviously it is a graphite. I wonder if it is suspended in a epoxy or something else, to make it castable.

Re: Casting Graphite Forms

All I saw was that it was graphite "imbued with a polymer" - that could be lots of things.
