Keep your paper clean while drawing

To keep the paper clean and to prevent smudging when drawing, put a piece of acetate under your drawing hand. It will stick to your hand and glide over your drawing as your hand moves.


It's best to wipe both sides of the acetate after each use so it's ready for next time.

Simple but affective! I wish I had read this before I did my oil painting, which is now drying. I got myself in a right mess and this would have saved all the agony. Great tip!
