About Zest-it® Blending Sponge

Blending Sponge
The Zest-it Blending Sponge is a fine sponge, impregnated with Pencil Blend, in a pot with a screw top lid.
It was developed for a company that specialise in Parchment Craft products, as a controlled way of using Zest-it Pencil Blend to blend Coloured Pencils and Oil Pastels.

Zest-it® Blending Sponge
Pre-impregnated with 15 ml of
Zest-it Pencil Blend.

If the surface of the sponge gets very dirty, wipe with paper towel or turn the sponge over.

The sponge holds 15 ml of Zest-it Pencil Blend. When you press your brush, paper stump or tortillion onto the surface it soaks up Zest-it liquid.
The amount of pressure and the length of time on the sponge gives you more control over the amount you use. This is important for those people working on small projects like greeting cards where too much liquid could spoil the design.

To blend the coloured pencil using a brush.
Press the brush onto the sponge surface and a small amount will be taken up by the brush. Using brush strokes in the same direction as the pencil was applied, blend the coloured pencil.
It's better to work small area's at a time, have a cloth or kitchen towel handy to wipe the tip of the brush, this also keeps the work smooth and the brush clean, which in turn keeps the sponge cleaner.

Tortillions, blending stumps and cotton buds work extremely well.
Press the tip of the tortillion, stump or bud onto the surface of the sponge to dampen it. With gentle pressure in a circular motion blend the applied coloured pencil. Excellent for detail and small areas.

More pencil can be added whilst the paper is still damp, gentle pencil pressure when applying to damp paper, then blend again.
