4 Erasers Every Crafter Should Know

Rubber Eraser

This is the eraser we see on the top of our pencil. It works by shedding itself while lifting the graphite pencil marks. It works rather well although it doesn't always removes the marks completely and can tare the paper if used too aggressively.

Gum eraser

The gum eraser has a softer feeling to it and also works great on paper. It tends to crumble while you use it but this is what enables it to absorb the graphite from the paper. The only problem is that it doesn't last as long as the rubber erasers.

Kneaded eraser

This type of eraser is much softer and can be sculpted into different shapes. It's especially useful when you want to erase small parts because you can sculpt the eraser into a sharp "stick". It works by lifting the pigment so no damage can come to the paper.

Vinyl eraser

The vinyl or plastic eraser is strong and can easily tear your paper. However it can remove almost anything, even ink so it's a must. It also erases what you need completely. These erasers also come in a pencil form and can be sharpened by regular sharpeners. This is perfect if you need to erase small details from your project.

Whatever eraser you use remember to wipe the graphite off so not to re-smear it on the paper. Just imagine where would we be without erasers...it would be a very frustrating situation. I hope now that you know the 4 Erasers Every Crafter Should Know you will no longer need to get annoyed if something goes wrong.
