Short Drawing Tip #4: Dust don't Blow

Always resist all temptation to blow dust, graphite or eraser debris off of your drawing.
It is all to easy to have little particles of spit hit the paper!

Brush your paper clean.
The best way is to use a soft bristle brush.
Any soft bristle brush will do.

I use a draftsman dusting brush which can be found in all good art stores.  (I like the size it covers a wide stretch of my drawing in one swoop!)

Tip #4

Never blow on your work to remove eraser debris or dust but use a fine bristle brush.
