Compressed soft Paper Stumps for easy blending of dry media. They can be sharpened to a pencil-like point for very fine details.
When blending, a paper stump may be held at an angle to increase the surface area that contacts the paper. The tip of the stump must be kept clean while blending in light-toned areas of a drawing, so as to not smear darker media from other areas onto it. Eventually the Paper Stump will become dull from use; sandpaper blocks are often used to clean and re-sharpen it.
