Default ROLLED OR SOLID...STUMPS

There seems to be both rolled and solid stumps. I can only find rolled at Michaels. Are they equally as good? Any advice would be greatly appreciated now that I have 120 Prismacolor pencils arriving tomorrow!!! Never knew I wanted them until last night! Funny how this website works.

I've used the rolled forever. Not just for this but for pastels. I've never had a problem with them.

I have used rolled ones for a long time. They work great!

PrincessInk, the MCP queen, recommended the solid stumps, as you can sharpen them with an emery board when they lose their points or remove color, if necessary.

You can sharpen the rolled ones that way too. I did it this weekend and have done it in the past. And what is MCP?

So where did you find the solid ones? Did not see them at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.

Hobby Lobby & Blick Art & Craft store is where I got mine. Blick also had the Gamsol odorless mineral spirits.

I just bought some rolled ones yesterday at an art supply store. They didn't have the solid ones. Anyhow, the guy that worked there told me he liked the rolled ones and he sharpens them with an exacto (sp?) knife.
How do you sharpen them?

I believe the rolled ones are called tortillions? The solids are called blending stumps.
I also bought a very cool & convenient jar to put the mineral spirits in so you can dip your stumps. I got it at Michael's & it is a Loew Cornell brush cleaning jar. It has a cool sponge w/a brush top in the bottom & I only fill the spirits till it soaks the sponge & I never empty the jar (it has a lid). I just keep filling it as needed.

Kymber, since no one answered your question, MCP is Magic Colored Pencil, which is what this technique with the Prismas and Gamsol has been called.

HTH, Julie

Thanks, Julie!

Thanks. And if someone has the link so I don't have to hunt for it that would be great. I need to print it for my HUGE techniques book.

Default stumps

I definitely prefer the solid stumps. As you use the rolled ones, they become frayed much quicker than the solid ones and it seems that the solid ones also give you a much smoother look.
Any store or college bookstore with fine art supplies will have them.

Words like that make me actually, possibly, maybe miss California where we had them all over. Here it's the internet or nothing when it comes to fine art stores.

I have used the solid stumps (they are made of paper felt) without a problem. They come in many different sizes, which is nice. I got them at Hobby Lobby in the same aisle as the artist erasers, and drawing pencils. Blick Art & Craft also carried them...that's where I got my Gamsol. This is my favorite technique in a LONG time.
