    I have always found blending stumps don’t give me good control over what and how much I can blend. I use the tissue wrapped around the finger technique.

  • Hero Of The Otaku

    Blending with your finger introduces oils into your art that over time will deteriorate your piece of art which is why you want to never touch it to blend or at least that’s how the existence of blending stump was justified to me

    Hi Jazza. I am an artist the same age as you. I too have learned about blending stumps today and honestly I felt every moment of you going through this video. Painfully so. I have been a finger smudging purist but now... I'm not sure who I am anymore. However, if you DO want to up your finger smudging game, might I suggest adding tissues. Sandpaper + pencils can also create the smoothest blend.

    Why not use a small white cloth for blending. 😅

    Tips on Blending Stumps!! 1) Use at an angle like you would a pencil and dont press down so hard 2) When the stump has so much grafite and can't be "used", use sanding paper to get rid of the grafite. Do not sharpen them!!! It will ruin the stump!!! 3) You still need to shade with a pencil when using the stump; it will look a lot better. It's not a miracle worker!

    I also didn’t know what is a blending stump and used my fingers as well. Now that I saw the great Jazza use this, I’m getting it

  • Silver Line21
    Silver Line2112 napja

    You shouldn’t use your finger to blend pencil art because the oil from your finger can rub the lead/graphite into the physical paper and will make it harder to erase any mistakes rather than if you had used a blending stump. Alternatively, you could get a generic tissue, wrap it around the back end of a writing utensil and you have a homemade blending stump and that works just fine. You also get lead/graphite all over your hands and it can mess up your art when you’re holding the paper.
