Are you a painter? Do you sometimes make mistakes? Instead of tossing the whole project and becoming frustrated, you can use an eraser sponge to fix them!
In the past we have been sharing fun and even unique uses for your eraser sponges, but this one definitely takes the cake. From the time that eraser sponges have become popular, people have been searching for uses and tricks and you’ll want to give this trick a shot if you paint.
With water color paintings it is very easy to get paint where you didn’t mean to, and can also make it hard to change the overall look of the painting.
With eraser sponges you now have a way to do that:
-If you have something you would like to add to your water color painting, create a stencil of the object and place it on your painting wherever you want the object to be.
-Once the stencil is in place, take a small piece of an eraser sponge and wet it. Make sure to squeeze out most of the water.
-Once this is done, gently wipe the painting where the stencil is. This will bring up the paint and do this multiple times until the canvas or paper is blank again.
-Once you pull up the stencil, you will find that there is a perfect white spot in the shape of your object! This will make it easier to add in that shape or object that you couldn’t add in before.
-Before working on your project again, dry your painting or set it aside to dry naturally before continuing to work on it.
