Making use of erasers
Using the right eraser is crucial for coloured pencils. A gum eraser works best when trying to fully erase an area that’s been covered by coloured pencil. A kneaded eraser is best for lightly picking up the coloured pencil binding off the paper. This works wonders when correcting mistakes, or if you’re deliberately lifting colour from an area such as the eyes. The kneaded eraser has a consistency like putty and is true to its name. You’ll have to knead the eraser before using it, and then knead it again after picking up the coloured pencil off of the paper.
