Brushing the charcoal mixture on to the surface of the paper. 
Charcoal mixture is made of powdered charcoal and denatured alcohol.
Background was defined by using a kneaded eraser. I used fixative for the surface of my drawing,
which sealed and protected it against any other elements added.
Working consistent is hard with this charcoal mixture, but not impossible. I made a few test samples on a separate piece of paper to figure out the method and timing of how to apply it.
