It might seem odd to be so excited about an eraser. But as a pencil artist committed to a particular level of precision in my art, I can't get along without my Tuff Stuff Stick Eraser Stick by Sanford Paper Mate. The Tuff Stuff Eraser is a quality white plastic eraser.
The eraser stick in the Tuff Stuff is only 3.8 mm wide. This is narrow enough to be able to erase in the tiniest of spots. And yet wide enough to not compromise on the ability of the eraser to accomplish its task.
The fact that you can return the eraser stick back into the plastic barrel makes it easy to keep the eraser clean. You can purchase refills for your Tuff Stuff Eraser making it ecologically friendly. I use mine all the time but have never actually had to use my refills yet.
I often use my Tuff Stuff Stick Eraser as a white pencil on my graphite drawings. And I always encourage my students to own at least one. They are always as excited about their Tuff Stuff Erasers as I am. Their comment when first using it is usually, "Wow!" We just can't get along without it. I own several, keeping one in every pencil pack and drawing station I have.
I always keep a small journal and a tiny drawing kit with me wherever I go. My Tuff Stuff Eraser is an essential part of that drawing kit. I love my Tuff Stuff Eraser!
