Your magic is very sketchy...

When I'm put under pressure my insides fall out

The lower I fall the darker my snout

I own a magic hat that makes things disappear

As I shed my skin, abracadabra I reappear

What am I?

Seems like you are:

A pencil


Because,

When I'm put under pressure my insides fall out

The graphite in the centre (insides) rubs off (falls out) on the page when you use pressure.

The lower I fall the darker my snout

Not 100% sure about this one, but graphite is dark in colour and can smudge around the end of the pencil as you use it more (i.e. as the pencil gets shorter/lower).

I own a magic hat that makes things disappear

Often pencils have an eraser on the end.

As I shed my skin, abracadabra I reappear

Sharpening the pencil makes the graphite reappear.


And from the title:

You use pencils to sketch pictures.

Are you a :

volcano ?


Because,

When I'm put under pressure my insides fall out

Volcanos erupt lava when the pressure increases

The lower I fall the darker my snout

The deeper the lava, the blacker the surrounding rocks of inactive volcanos.

I own a magic hat that makes things disappear

Throw anything inside a volcano and its literally gone :D

As I shed my skin, abracadabra I reappear

Lava keeps accumulating a black solid layer that is lost again and again


And from the title:

The magic is sketchy since things that disappear by lava can't be brought back.
