Default Blending Stumps for Gamsol Technique

I've had many questions since the tutorial on the Gamsol Technique especially about the blending stumps so I decided to scan a photo of what they look like and where they can be purchased. So far the only company I've found to still have the ones made in Taiwan is Pro Art in Mt Laurel, NJ. You can buy these at AC Moore by the charcoal pencils in the art supply isle. I also found a website that has them:

Here's a photo of what they look like:

Smile Is there a difference?

Is there a difference in the stumps and the other rolled up paper things? I've thrown my package away and don't remember what they were called.

The "rolled up paper things" are called tortillions and not blending stumps. You can probably use them but they won't hold their shapes as much and you can't sharpen them.

Our Super Walmart also carries packages of "Stumps".
But have found some Walmarts around here are starting to update their stores and getting rid of alot of things in the Craft Dept. and adding more. So don't know if they will continue having Art Supplies or not.

I found some at Michael's as well. I also bought some pencils but am not sure if they are the correct ones. Which set that Stampin' Up! offers will work for this technique? I only have the watercolor pencils.

Ok, I know this has been asked before, but what is the difference between the ones made in China and the ones made in Taiwan? The ones I have are made in China and I don't seem to be having any luck.

If you have a local art store you can purchase the stump individually. That way if you like a certain size you can just get that one instead of the whole package.

The ones made in Taiwan are softer and blend and move the color around a lot easier.

No, watercolor pencils do not work. Regular colored pencils are what's needed for this technique. Prismacolor are great quality and offer a huge selection in color, but Crayolas work very well, too.
