These natural, soft leather cloths are commonly used as blending tools by artists drawing with charcoal, pencil, soft pastel, and other dry media. Chamois is very soft and naturally absorbent, with no abrasive properties that will damage even delicate papers. The chamois can be cut into small manageable pieces, where it is carefully used to blend more cleanly and softly, instead of smudging with fingers where body oils can be introduced to the surface and discolor or damage the drawing. Used primarily as a blending and erasing tool with gentle wiping or rubbing, the artist can blot the excess surface can pull up dust, or even lighten the drawing with precisely controlled blotting.


Set of Four: Includes Four total Chamois, two 5"x7"pieces and two 13"x13" pieces.

Creative Mark Chamois Skin

These natural, soft leather cloths are commonly used as blending tools by artists drawing with charcoal, pencil, soft pastel, and other dry media. Chamois is very soft and naturally absorbent, with no abrasive properties that will damage even delicate papers. The chamois can be cut into small manageable pieces, where it is carefully used to blend more cleanly and softly, instead of smudging with fingers where body oils can be introduced to the surface and discolor or damage the drawing. Used primarily as a blending and erasing tool with gentle wiping or rubbing, the artist can blot the excess surface can pull up dust, or even lighten the drawing with precisely controlled blotting.

Once the chamois surface has been completely used, it can be either soaked in warm, soapy water and hand washed, or run through the washing machine with detergent (but no softener) and then hung in a safe place to dry. Do not hang in direct sunlight. Once dry, it will be stiff and firm, but is easily re-softened by rubbing together against itself or another clean piece of chamois.

How do you clean the cloth?

Asked by: FDA1
After each use a natural leather chamois should be washed completely with clean soapy water, rinsed thoroughly and wrung out repeatedly until clean. It should then be hung up to air dry away from direct sunlight. Never wash a chamois with any type of soap not specifically designed for washing a vehicle, use only car wash soap. Leaving a little soap in a chamois when storing will not damage the leather. Never machine wash or tumble dry a chamois. Effects of Improperly Cleaning a Chamois Improperly Cleaned chamois that has been “cleaned” improperly will quickly break down and, like any leather product, will rot, shed and eventually fall apart. Many types of detergents will strip away the natural oils used in the tanning process and significantly shorten the effective life of the chamois cloth. Do not clean a chamois with any of the following Harsh chemicals (bleach, ammonia, etc…) Any type of degreaser (Dawn, Simple Green, etc…) Dish soap Laundry detergent Dish washer Detergent Any type of bathroom cleaner Any alcohol based cleaner Characteristics of a Chamois that has been improperly cleaned include: Leaves “lint” or particles on the finish Easily splits, cracks or develops holes Will not soften when re-wetted But with proper care and maintenance, a genuine natural leather chamois cloth is durable, soft and will last for years with normal use.
