GREAT drawing TOOL by Doctor-Pencil GREAT drawing TOOL by Doctor-Pencil
SEE MY BLOG POST ABOUT THEM HERE [link]

I just had to share this! I discovered that using these RUBBER tipped "color shapers" for blending can be just the right tool for certain effects. They are really made for painting, but I'm always looking for things you can also use for drawing, and got the idea from a fellow artist. We all know how blending stumps work, but they remove some of the graphite when you blend.

These do not. I've had one for over a year, but I didn't really discover a good use for it until recently. NOW, I'm going to need to buy assorted sizes!

View OR buy them here: [link]

I'm sure you can buy them other places online, in case Blicks doesn't ship over-seas?

yea my zune player sends me monthly updates, i wasnt aware your son's artist name was Andrew Belle until your last post LOL (sorry airheaded moment)

I haven't watched Sing Off yet, usually I get in too late but I think I'll
check the internet for the episodes. I like shows like this one because its
straight forward, you don't have all that politics involved, you just go up there and do your thing!

Hey yeah, I was using one for a while - they are great. I actually purchased my one thinking it was a detail eraser, it didn't erase but turned out to be a great blend/smudge effect tool. I think they were selling them as detailers for clay modelling.
Great tip !

what happens when they get all grayed and blacked up from the graphite?

I clean off the surface with kneaded eraser and "sticky tack" - used for hanging posters on a wall without nails. It's also makes great "spot lifting erasers" too. :D

More of a specialty tool? Depends on the level of pencil you're trying to blend too. The darker ones are more waxy (clay mix) and will blend different, so experiment :D:D
