Technical help wanted 5 Years, 2 Months ago  
Hello!

I'm just recently getting back into pencil/charcoal drawing and am looking for some help...

Can anyone tell me what tool you would use for drawing fine highlights on top of pencil/charcoal, like this guy is using here

Many thanks!

I use a putty rubber which I manipulate into a fine point for doing highlights but it doesn't give fine detail like this. I would love to know what they're using. It looks like it's a rubber rather than a pencil but I could be wrong.

Hi Cathy,

If you're interested, I found out what the tool is and bought myself one today. Its a mechanical eraser that takes a 2.3mm eraser sticks that are quite firm and have quite a sharp edge to them. I've not used it yet but it looks really good.

Here's a link to it.

Thanks Matt. I was right at least about it being an eraser. Where did you manage to buy one on a Sunday?

I live in London, I found it quite by chance in my local art supplies shop. For anyone interested who might live in London it's a small shop called 'London Art' on Finchley Road, Finchley, north west London.
