I bought  a similar product at a local office supply store in Honolulu under the name UHU Tac.  Was $2.49 for a 3 oz. package on sale.  It's white and works better than the kneaded erasers I've tried.  Made in Germany.

I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Excellent, Danielle, except that the eyeball keeps grabbing my attention.  The pupil seems to have a tail, like an apostrophe.

Other wise, it is very well done.

 :thankyou: Patricia, so much you alway lift my spirit with your comments . :-*
 :thankyou: Mea for your lovely comments.  I know it seem strange but this is a closeup picture and that is I think the silouette of a lady taking the picture.  You can see the original on the first page that Nolan posted.  Bot thank you for paying attention.  :-*

OH, I checked it out -- I see what you mean.  Yikes, it looks like there's a duck standing next to the lady photographer.

You did such an excellent job on this. (minus the duck, though)
