5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful addition to any pencil artist's kit
This blister pack contains two kinds of pencil:

First a blender. This is essentially a pigment free pencil, it is the waxy carrier for pigment and that is it. With this pencil you can smooth two (or more) colours that have already been laid down on the page and mix them together. I find this useful in many circumstances where I don't want a distinct line...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but delicate
The blender was really good for colours in the face, but the tip is soft it break easily.
I cannot see that much difference with the shinning one, I should try with other materials

This review is from: Derwent Blender and Burnisher Blister Pack Colourless Blending Pencils plus Eraser and Sharpener (Set of 4) (Office Product)
This blister pack contains two kinds of pencil:

First a blender. This is essentially a pigment free pencil, it is the waxy carrier for pigment and that is it. With this pencil you can smooth two (or more) colours that have already been laid down on the page and mix them together. I find this useful in many circumstances where I don't want a distinct line between colours (e.g. clouds in the sky, smoke from a chimney, flesh tones in a portrait).

Secondly, a burnisher. This gives your work a subtle sheen. It's not glossy like a varnish, but a lovely subtle shimmer. I'm particularly fond of using it where light is hitting a body of water, it really gives a lift to your work. There is a slight change in the colour/depth on the page when you add the burnisher, but it's not dramatic. I also use the burnisher with Derwent Inktense 24 Tin range of pencils. If you lay down the burnisher on the page it is waxy enough to resist water - so with the Inktense when you create a wash of colour you can leave gaps in the wash by protecting the page with the burnisher. I'm sure this would work with Derwent Watercolour 72 Pencil Set in a Wooden Box range of pencils too.

Sharpener and eraser are also standard Derwent quality (i.e. very high) and are an added bonus. Always handy items.

This review is from: Derwent Blender and Burnisher Blister Pack Colourless Blending Pencils plus Eraser and Sharpener (Set of 4) (Office Product)
Good items in one neat package. Derwent burnishers and blenders are always decent quality. The pencil sharpener is surprisingly good quality and comes with a good soft eraser. Well recommended.

Give a nice effect on your drawing and fixing mistakes. They are not great and dont make a great difference though. They make it look smoky and blurry rather than shiny and blended.
