Well now, have you got yours yet? Yes I mean 'the magic eraser', that little block of nothing that seems to do so much. Recently, at the SBA seminar there was much buzz about this little miracle product and everyone I spoke to had various stories about how they had been introduced to it, ( I came across it some years ago, from a blog of all places, although Billy Showell also mentions it in one of her books, Vegetable Portraits I think). So, just in case you have no idea what this thing is and have not yet been introduced to its rather interesting artistic qualities, here for your delectation is a new one of mine...
|There are, of course other brands of magic eraser out there,|
but just look at that wonderfully kitsch packaging.
Who could resist?
Do exactly what it says on the box to 'erase' marks off walls, tiles, trainers (really!), baths, sinks...oh yes and watercolour paper! Who would have thought that something that resembles a big white lump of sponge could get those really annoying mistakes and drops of paint off your work without seriously damaging the surface, (although I find it is best used in places where you don't want to paint later as it does 'raise' slightly). Just like magic?
