The Prismacolor artgum is a very good eraser to erase pencil on Mylar. I really think it the best eraser for that purpose and I highly recommend it. And as always a prompt delivery and very good price. Thanks MisterArt

These are my favorite canvas boards. I’ve used them with layers of papers, inks, acrylic paint, liquid watercolors, water soluble oil pastels, paint pens, pencil and oil paintsticks. I love that they don’t warp and my colors pop. The surface is perfect for mixed media.
