The Derwent Blender and Burnisher do a great job of blending and smoothing colors to produce images that previously may have been more difficult to achieve. If you’re working with colored pencils and want to create a subtle blend, the Derwent Blender Pencil is the accessory to reach for. The Blender’s core is firm enough to really push into the colors below, and the Burnisher adds extra smoothness when applied over the Blender layer. The artists’ advantage is that this combination does not build up on the surface the way other blender pencils often do.

The Derwent Burnisher is a soft, colorless pencil made from the binder used for making colored pencils and allows you to blend two or more colors together to create a new color. At the same time it mixes and smoothes the colors, so individual strokes and hard edges are softened. The Burnisher is a hard colorless pencil, which when used over layers of pigment provides a well-blended, polished finish by pushing the pigment into the paper. It can also be used for a wax resist technique—draw your required design, this will add a layer of wax to the surface, then add your color. The wax layer will resist the colored pencil thus leaving that part of your drawing white. The fact that they come in a pack is great because artists tend to run out quickly!

  • Blender softens strokes and hard edges while mixing colors
  • Burnishing is ideal for creating sparkling glass, polished surfaces, and metals
  • Pack includes 2 blander pencils, 2 burnisher pencils, plastic sharpener, and plastic eraser

Use a Burnisher Pencil to Create Interesting Effects

Use the wax resist technique to create areas of white and interesting effects. With the Derwent Burnisher draw a shape or cover an area you want to remain white and then paint over the top with Derwent watersoluble media. The paint will not adhere to the areas where you have put the colorless Burnisher. This drawing of a wall was created using this technique. Draw the shape of the bricks using the burnisher and then a wash was applied over the top using Aquatone.
