I was watching a demo vid on the prismacolor website and they showed an artist using alcohol to blend and fill in some of the white areas of the paper by swabbing the area w/ alcohol. They don't mention what kind of alcohol and they're working on paper that might be like illustration board or bristol board. Would this most likely be denatured alcohol? Rubbing alcohol? I was under the impression that if it was something like mineral spirits it would probably eat through the paper. Thanks!
?????!!!!!! It's mineral spirits, not hydrochloric acid!Originally Posted by affluentgoblinI was under the impression that if it was something like mineral spirits it would probably eat through the paper. Thanks!
As to the alcohol, any will do: rubbing alcohol, denatured, even vodka or everclear.

Haha, fair enough
Thanks a lot for the tips everyone! I'm gonna give the rubbing alcohol a try. I'm just paranoid b/c I didn't want to screw up a drawing and have to start over.
Thanks for the site. I have heard about people using turpinoid. I have used the colorless blender marker that Prismacolor makes for its marker line. It's okay, not ideal.
