Frisk Magic Watercolour Sponge Erasers
for lifting colour from watercolour paintings.
Completely remove unwanted watercolour paint from your paper with the Magic Watercolour Eraser Sponge. This works better than scrubbing with a brush and blotting with paper towels. It does not damage the paper surface. It even removed Sap Green which Winsor & Newton label says is a staining pigment. I found it best to use a paper towel to blot the last of the dislodged wet pigment off, to get completely white. Rinse the sponge often during use.
Gently rub the desired area with a dampened eraser sponge until the paint is removed. With a Magic Eraser Sponge it is possible to lift even days old paint. Simply rinse the sponge after painting and reuse. Chemical free. Comes in a pack of 4 sponges.
You can cut the sponge up or use stencils and paper masks to control the area erased. I found a light touch lightened an area and a bit firmer pressure or repeating took the paper back to white. For the cloud-like shapes in the sample I barely touched it to the paper for the lighter areas and rubbed just a bit harder for the white areas, then I blotted it with paper towel.
