This is so cool!  8) Have you heard of the 'Magic Eraser' made by Mr. Clean? Its a white sponge type material and us used for removing stains, marks etc. from walls, some fabrics etc.  I cut a small piece off of the sponge, make it damp, and gently rub the area I want to remove (watercolour). Keep turning the sponge to a new spot frequently. Voila! If you're careful you can get right back to the white paper without damage. I tried it on an old experimenting sheet I keep around for trying new things. Found this tip on a site...somewhere  :confused: can't remember which, I've been on so many!   :D

They do indeed...especially on walls which young aspiring artists are so fond of using!  ;D I also saw a video where the artist used a mask/stencil to clean out a boat shape with the magic eraser and was then painted in. Won't have to worry about forgetting to put things in!  :heeha:
