A long sought solution to those unintended watercolour brush marks resulting from too much enthusiasm, haste or miscalculation.
- Use the brush when barely damp,
- Hold in a nearly vertical orientation and drag gently, but firmly back and forth along its’ long edge. (See photo)
- Upon first noting the removal of paint, immediately dab the brush several times on a towel (paper, etc) and recommence “erasing”.
- Rinse after 2 – 3 “erasures”, dab to remove excess wetness and continue.
Caution: Too damp a brush and/or too vigorous “erasing” may damage the painting/paper.
For smaller areas, use the edge of the brush in a similar manner. For many smaller areas (“erase” and/or highlights), try using Rosemary’s Shiraz Short Flat, sizes 1 and/or 2.
The eradicator brush evolved from trials between Joyce and Rosemary. A useful addition to the watercolourist’s collection and at just £9.50/$11.95 an affordable one at that.
