UOTE=sillyfilly;18951502]I wanted to ask what kind of eraser is best to use? A soft one? Also I read on the Dick Blick web site to use an electric sharpener and a small sharpener, hand held. What do you ladies use?[/QUOTE]
You are going to get a variety of answers to this, as there are so many options.
Sharpeners: I use an electric pencil sharpener and a German hand-held model Alivn.
Erasers: I use an electric eraser, an artgum and a Moo.
