Using Erasers To Make Marks

The eraser is a very useful tool when used in conjunction with the charcoal medium either to make marks or to enhance the tonal qualities of a drawing. Making a reduction tone drawing can be a very effective way of creating a drawing. It also makes one think of the eraser as a positive tool rather than something that is used just for erasing mistakes. Like the other mediums, one can devise ways of using the eraser to create a glossary of marks that can be used as an expression for our observations. A good tip is to always keep the eraser clean. One can do this by rubbing it onto a clean surface, or if it is a plastic eraser, it will stand washing.
