Mak­ing use of erasers

ImagineFX - - Traditional Artist Workshop -

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.
