Paper Stumps Blending Tools


A set of stumps for blending and smudging pastels, graphite and charcoals.

Also known as blending tools.

Some artists use their fingers to spread the medium, but many argue that blending tools are much better. Your fingers contain oils that can contaminate the medium, leading to smudges or areas that are difficult to erase. Using a blending tool prevents the oils from mixing with the medium.
