A Guide to Erasing Mistakes
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
― Albert Einstein
An eraser is a pencil’s best friend; it’s tough to use a pencil without needing an eraser. Some prefer a nifty eraser on the top of a pencil whilst others prefer an eraser on the side (... hold on, why does this sound like we’re describing ketchup and fries? Hahaha guess it’s just our tummies having the feels).
Different erasers have a different impact on pencil marks (of course, this is totally up to personal preference). Let’s take a look at what we have in store! :D
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
For light to normal erasing, we prefer soft, dust-free erasers as they provide smooth erasing without damaging the surface.
