I’ve just discovered something new! I typically like to start my drawings using an erasable blue pencil (a Prismacolor Col-Erase 20044 Blue) and then use a mechanical pencil (Pentel Twist-Erase) to finish the drawing. This process works fine, but I am constantly having to stop and hand sharpen the blue pencil. I have tried to find blue leads to use in my mechanical pencils, but they are all too brittle and not erasable at all.
Then I discovered PaperMate Erasable Color Leads. These are soft leads, fit my mechanical pencils perfectly and work like a charm… AND you can get them at your local WALMART!! …well, you can’t get them at MY local Walmart because I just bought every one they had last night… but you might want to give these a try sometime. I love em.
Dennis, Thanks for the tip.
Great post. I’m so glad you posted this. I added a link to it at the bottom of a post I was writing about drawing pencils. Thanks for the tip. My readers will be happy to learn this. If you would rather I didn’t include the link in my post, you’re welcome to check it.
Thanks so much for all your great posts.
Dennis, is blue the only color these leads come in?
…actually they come packaged in three packs of red, blue and green… and three other colors are available I think.
