Brush and Pencil : Coloured Pencil Powder Blender : 14g
- Powder Blender is a transparent and non-toxic dry lubricant which stops coloured pencils from binding to the surface of the paper.
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.

amazing !! works beautifuly
Surprisingly good, better than using smelly solvent. Blends colours well.
Brilliant I use these all the time with my coloured pencil art.
Product works like a dream on the right paper with Polychromos pencils, even though I've only done small projects, I'm totally satisfied and will buy again.
Let’s you blend colour pencil on sanded paper
Excellent product . Will use again
A new approach to coloured pencil work
I have only given four stars as I've only tried this once and have not explored exactly what it can do.
They do exactly what they say. The powder allows for coloured pencil to be easily blended. The. Workable fixative allows for extra layers on coloured pencil work. Like all new things all I have to do now isn't practice
Top quality product and service as always
The powder blender works very well on sanded paper but not so well on normal paper. Putting a little on the surface then applying the colour before blending with a little more powder seems to give the best results. I used make up pads or very soft pieces of sponge to blend. You can buy the proper pads from Windsor and Newton but the make up blenders from The Pound Shop work fine. You need to spray with Texture Fixative before adding more layers, or Final Fixative when finished
This is a first time purchace of this powder blender, its easy to use, works well with polypromos pencils very well, i tried it on my prisma pencils too, it does work on them also but i preferd them on polycromos best
have not used it yet but review of product good
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!
