When one of my pencils break off in the sharpener I have to jamb a graphite pencil in there to clean it out. I guess you do buy tubes of graphite to lube things up.
Just thought I'd share this with everyone... I really don't like Arches water color paper. I've been using it and haven't been too happy so I kind of quit for awhile. Even though I still have some left I went and bought Fabriano Artistico HP watercolor paper that I have used before. And it made all the difference. Here's my last effort with the Fabrano..

The Arches would clog up really fast with wax but I could never seem to get it to cover completely if that makes sense. I've heard that it's the grain of the paper that does that.
