Recently I was looking at the Zest-It site and spotted something that's new to me - and I guess a few other coloured pencils artists too.
It's called a Zest-It Blending Sponge. It immediately put me in mind of one of those sponges that a lot of people use to apply "stuff" to their faces - and I was guessing it probably worked in pretty much the same way.
|Zest-It Blending Sponge|
For blending Coloured Pencils and Pastel for Parchment and other work on vellum or paper. An easy, clean and convenient way of using Zest-it to moisten paper stumps, tortillions and shapers.Then I took a look at the website page which pictures the product.
Pre-impregnated with 15 ml of Zest-it and ready for use. Re-moisten when necessary with 5 ml of Zest-it Brush Cleaner, Pencil or Parchment Blend.
So - the bit I'm puzzled about - given the photo on the website page - is where is the sponge!?
What it looks like is a tub of transparent shoe cleaner. So is there a sponge in there and does it lift out? Or do you use it like shoe cleaner and wipe it onto surfaces using a tool - such as a paper stump or tortillon? If the latter - why call it a sponge? [Anyway, I've written to Zest-It to ask and am awaiting a reply]
Has anybody got theis product already - and if so, how do you find it. More particularly, have you written a review of it which I can link to?
