Today In My Travels - Mr Clean Magic Eraser for Watercolors

While traveling around the net today I came across something interesting.
Has anyone heard about using "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser" for watercolors? Have a look at this Video and see what you think. I've never tried this, but it could be great help for Watercolorists. It's being used to fix mistakes or make additions in your watercolor paintings. Click here for the Video:

Also off to the left side here, I've added an Button with a Cute Doll with pink hair. I don't usually add stuff to my blog, but this is for a good and important event for Breast Cancer, that I totally support. So if you have a chance, click on the Doll and go read all about an great Art Doll Auction planned to raise awareness and donations for Breast Cancer Research .
I was over on a friend and fellow artists blog, Helen Lystra when I saw she had posted one, so thank you Helen. Also go have a look at her Blog, she does wonderful work!!!

I've only tried the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for cleaning (and it does remove scuffs and stains), but I watched that video and it's very impressive!

I added the Think Pink doll to my blog. Thanks.

I also checked out Helen's lovely art work.

You're just filled with useful information! :)

Aren't you at all concerned about the chemicals on the magic eraser penetrating the paper and destroying it's archival integrity. What about it's destroying the paper by all the scrubbing that she is doing. Or, the boat now looking like a cut and paste boat with no soft edges for relief. What about lifting staining colors. Not a fan of this method. No substitute for mastering the use of watercolor and embracing the beauty of the beautiful accidents that this medium is fraught with. Sometimes the paint can take you places that are amazing. That tight little scrubbing gave me the creeps.

I just bought the Mr. Clean eraser for cleaning house... guess I'll have to move it into my studio. Thank you Sharron and thank you both for adding the breast cancer link to your blogs. It is a good cause.

Lisa hi, you've raised some good points, something people should think about if they try it. I thought of the same things, but I'm not a watercolorist. As I said, It's an interesting use of the product. Being a curious soul it caught my eye.:)
Helen, you will have to give your feedback on it, if you try it. You use so many different techniques with your work, it would be great info.:)

Awww Thank you Corrine. That's good incentive for me to post more often!! LOL.
Also thanks for the heads up on the Header. It's from a painting I did of some Glads for my Mom.

I just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog again. I've used the Magic Eraser once or twice when I've transferred paint with my hand and couldn't remove it with water. I never thought about using it for a stencil.

Shez said...

Hi Joan thanks for stopping by. Would be interested in your feedback, if you do try to use it as the video suggests.
