One thing I kind of discovered just today with them is that if you want to lift out a broader area without making much streaking, is to flatten the kneaded eraser into a flat disk kind of shape, then, just place it on the area and press down. It works alot better than streaking it so you can re blend again.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
