Default Blending Stumps Substitutes

Glad you got some blending stumps, as you have discovered they are the cheapest thing you will purchase. Just an IMPORTANT HINT: I, and many others, have found that the Chinese made blending stumps are wound so tightly they just won't absorb the gamsol. Best to use stumps made in Taiwan. Gina K, online, sells the Taiwanese stumps (pkg of 6 sizes) very cheaply, under $3.00.

Prismacolor also has a colorless blender pen that is the same as a blending stump, under $3.00. I use it in small areas. A larger colorless blending stick, under $3.00 is available for larger areas. Results are good, but without the pop of gamsol.

Best of luck, you're going to love the results when you have all the "right stuff."
