Dry Cleaning Pad.


1.  I have recently found this amazing tool. I would not be without one now...  The pad does not need washing as it cleans it's self.  It is also great for cleaning drawing tools.  shapers, brushes etc.

2. Fold as directed and rub to clean off any marks that you get around your drawing.

3. As you will see in the third image it leaves crumbs of  rubber.  Sweep them away with your brush.

4. It leaves a nice clean surface and no damage to the tooth on the surface.

I have researched the availability and most art stores carry them.  Dick Blick has them.   I paid $14.95 in Au  ....They are much cheaper in the USA.

What does the pad contain Dors? Is it full of rubber eraser particles? Wonder if it would work to remove pastel smudges? Your Lioness is awesome. I have been struggling to keep up with my blog lately but i sometimes pop in amd look to see what everyone is up to.

Hi Sally. The pad does contain rubber eraser particles. I will see if it removes pastel smudges. and let you know.

Nothing comes out of the sack but what was in it.

Dors said...

It is filled with small particles of eraser which when rubbed the particles come out of the pad to erase any marks from the paper.
