Materials of Painting
The materials of painting can be broadly classified into 3 categories:
(A)Tools of Art
Tools of visual art are the physical materials which are used to create the artwork which we see. The tools are not used to create a mark on the surface. The general examples of tools are erasers, pencil sharpeners, brushes for painting, palettes, masking tape, drawing boards, easels etc.
Eraser is used to rub off a mistake made in a pencil drawing. Non dust erasers are preferred in drawing because they leave the surface clean without small residual dust. There is also a kneading eraser or putty eraser to erase minute details.
2. Pencil Sharpeners
There are a number of ways that pencils can be sharpened: handheld pencil sharpeners, sandpaper blocks, and even the old-fashioned way using a knife. If you need a smooth lead and a sharp tip in your drawing, sharpener is an easy option.
Try using a sharpener with a larger opening, which will be gentler on the pencil. This will make a smaller angle on the pencil, and the wastage of the lead will be lesser. Many artists use only knife in art and no mechanical sharpeners at all. With a knife you can expose a longer lead which will last more while shading large areas. This will also give more coverage when held at an angle. Sandpaper blocks help in making the lead smooth and also creating a sharp tip.
