Circadian Contraptions Day 103

Posted by on February 22, 2017

So I’ve been looking for some blending sticks recently, to supplement my drawing equipment. The store at the train stations (I’ve been traveling a lot the last for days for training) didn’t seem to have any. So when I started googling i ran into a tutorial on how to make them myself. I’ve made 2 blending sticks of different materials, and those serve as today’s contraption. One is made of very thin and smooth paper, the other from coarse thick paper. I’ve included the effect they had on each type of pencil. I’ll add though that the coarse stick needed a lot less “rubbing” to get a stronger effect. The coarse one is the upper stick, the bottom was the thin smooth paper.
