Hi everybody ! Does anybody have any ideas on how to remove fingerprint marks on graphite ?  :heeha: or is there a technique I am unaware of? Other than eraser?   :thankyou: in advance

Diane,

Not sure about removing the finger prints, but the best way to try to prevent it from happening again is to keep a sheet of clean paper under your hand as you work.

Hope someone has a good suggestion because I have had this problem, too.
