“Magic Eraser” cleaning sponge

I had a question about the cleaning sponge. This one is interesting!

If you SCRUB some graphite onto a piece of paper; I mean, REALLY dig that shit in there, you can take a piece of this Magic Eraser and rub lightly over the top of the seriously shiny mistake. You will notice that the graphite, almost immediately, starts coming up off of the paper.

I only just discovered this by mistake. Well, not really mistake. I bought some of these sponges the other day to clean some marble tiles. As I looked at the package, still sitting on the counter, I just asked… “what if…?” and then a solid “fuck it, what’s the worst that could happen?”

It really is like magic! Just be careful, though. Rubbing too hard can seriously damage the paper. I did a test run before touching it to my drawing. Some parts did not end well lol. Experimenting is great!

This is part of the #sixfanarts challenge that I took suggestions on a while back. I wanted to make them all full-size, instead of doing tiny ones, this time.

Still 5 more to go!
