How to make handmade paper blending stumps using only 3 supplies



In this video I’m showing you how to create your own homemade paper blending stumps, using only 3 supplies, printer paper, tape and a piece of sandpaper or a nail file.
Blending stumps are so useful when drawing in graphite or coloured pencils, and I understand that its not always easy to get art supplies locally, so I have shown you a way of making blending stumps that are very affordable but very handy.

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

  1. Yh this video is good but i feel like for those that don't have sand paper are missing out

  2. 2:30 into the video….Hey!!! you ever hear of sissors?
    I discovered that if you spray it lightly with water, it make the rolling tighter. Allow the stump to dry for 24 hours (or more). You'll have longer lasting blending stump. if you let it dry longer you won't have to worry about it un-raveling.

  3. I watched other people do this and I didn't understand what to do but I know how to do it now since I watched your video thank you very much
