Thank you, i do own one but i don't like it .. buzzing around in my hand and it sort of goes where it wants (it was a cheap one). I gave it to my son after calling it a few unmentionable names ;). I used a wooden pencil eraser by faber on this one. did an ok job but the hairs were still too thick and bright for my liking. Learned a lot though which is why i did this drawing. Started using a tombow mono retractable pencil eraser along with the wooden one now for far better results.
