Suitable for use with oil-based or wax-based coloured pencils, this Powder Blender is a transparent and non-toxic dry lubricant which stops coloured pencils from binding to the surface of the paper. The coloured particles from the pencil will move freely on top of the lubricant, and can be manipulated and blended like soft pastels. It also allows artists to achieve seamless and stroke-free coverage of large areas quickly, and can be used to soften the edge of eraser marks, by blending in colour from adjacent areas.

This product works best on non-absorbent, toothy surfaces such as sanded papers or acrylic gessoes. It is an archival product, and will not affect the longevity of your artwork.

Please note this product is designed for a specific application method:

  • Apply a small about of powder blender to the surface of the paper, using a brush, sponge or applicator. Tools to apply the powder blender which can be used are available here
  • Apply coloured pencil (or several colours of pencil) to the desired area. Be careful not to press too hard, as this will press the pencil through the powder blender and into the tooth of the paper, making it more difficult to blend.
  • Apply a small amount of powder blender over the coloured pencil, blending and mixing colours as you wish.

This product should be used with fixatives, ideally the Brush and Pencil texture fixative, which will restore tooth to the surface for layering, or the final fixative, which will seal a completed drawing.

Only just started using this product and it seems very promising. The container is rather small and fiddly and the powder is so fine that it does tend to go where you don't want it! (Posted on 20/10/2016)
