"Some CP artists use scotch tape or handi-tack to lift off layers that are not easy to erase. When using the tape, just use a corner of it onto your area, keeping the other end on your finger so you aren't lifting too much of what you want…"
"Rachel... What TYPE of colored pencil are you using??? the WAX based will build up a wax layer the more you color over and over.... but the OIL based will also get a 'slickness' about them too.... but with OIL, you can at least erase them…"
"Pris I was told to lightly burnish in between the layers..... though later on I had problems cuz I couldn't add the last minute details to my sketch. But now I'll keep it in mind Thanks. Regards, Rachna. "
