    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Kathy asks: "How do I clean my eraser?"
    A: With vinyl erasers, I rub the dirty part on another surface until it rubs away. If there's too much buildup for that to work, I'll use a craft knife to cut it away. (By the way, cutting erasers gives them a fresh, straight edge, which can be useful for erasing lines or details!)
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Judy has a tip for the Treat Sliders tutorial: "Simple to make but a clever gift package! My book club is having our holiday dinner and I have a small gift for each person. This is perfect! I don't have to wrap 8 gifts yet the "package" will be lovely. Thanks for sharing and Happy Holidays!"
