Default Prismacolor Blenders

I've looked all over and I've found tons of info on prismacolor pencils, blenders and markers, but i'm still confused about something. Can you use a prismacolor blender that's meant for markers to blend the pencils or do you have to use the pencil blender and if so what are the results like?

TIA

You use the Prismacolor blender marker for alcohol markers, and a blending stump with odorless mineral spirits (or something similar) to blend pencils. There is a marker specifically made to blend pencils, can't remember the name/brand of it now, I have one but the name has worn off. Both work equally well, although I prefer the blending stumps. There is also a colorless blending pencil, but it only works with multiple layers of color that have been colored onto the paper. The OMS technique will blend/soften even the lightest of colors applied to the paper.

The blending markers don't really 'blend' the colors, it's used more for removing color.

According to Prismacolor, the transparent marker blender can also be used to blend the colored pencils. See this page for what it looks like:

Then in this art lesson, it tells a bit more about using the marker:

I intend to try it!

I have a friend who uses the Prismacolor blending marker with her Prismacolor pencils and is quite happy with the results.

It is intended primarily to keep alcohol-based markers' colors in place so they won't bleed through. Additionally, it works well for smoother blending of artist-grade markers like Prismacolor markers.
