Bought a bunch of erasers to see which one was best at removing Rotring
Rapidograph drafting ink from vellum — my M.Arch professors decided to go all
hardcore old school on us and make us learn how to make architectural drawings
the OLD WAY.
It's freaking hard work! And You make one tiny mistake in ink and you have to
try and erase it from this 5-dollar-a-sheet translucent paper, and if you use
the wrong eraser it only makes a huge smudge and basically you've wasted not
only money, but a lot of time. So I did some test drawings and erasings, and the
blue half of this eraser was one of the best ones at removing the ink from
vellum. (It may not work on pencil or on paper, but that's not what it's for.)
Also it keeps a hard edge, so it's possible to erase one tiny little line next
to other things you want to keep, and not ruin everything.
So if your professors are giving you this sort of "builds character, hair on
your chest" drawing challenge, I suggest this eraser.
