Blending Stumps

by Cretacolor

Due to their soft, powdery consistency, pastels and charcoal can be easily wiped, either with your fingers or paper blending stumps. Available in three different diameters (7, 9, and 12 mm) and sharpened on both ends. Simply reshape dirty ends in normal sharpener to guarantee further clean blending. The results of this technique can be exquisite. Create large colored surfaces or blend different shades of color into each other.

How can I sharpen these?

- Asked by Bhagirath Kulkarni on 08-Feb-13

The paper stumps can be sharpened in a standard pencil sharpener. This will reshape the stumps as well as making a clean surface for further use.

I've used these for years. They are fantastic for small and large area blending.
Rated by: Mark B. in Sugar Land, TX
Most blending stumps are too hard...Cretacolor stumps are noticeably softer and work better with a wider range of media.
Rated by: Elicia S. in SugarHill, GA
I like the effect this has on colored pencils, the price is very reasonable too.
