Instructions for use
Gently squeeze and shake the dry cleaning pad until the fine eraser powder appears and forms a thin layer over the area to be cleaned. Work over the paper using a soft brush or using the cleaning pad, depending on the surface. Spread the contents of the pad using a circular motion. Clean the paper with a brush, and remove the dust.
Cleaning a 'watercolour' on paper
To remove outlines and some traces of graphite pencil. Once the watercolour is completely dried, twist the cleaning cushion over the artwork. Gently rub the cleaning cushion over the watercolour. Spread the contents of the pad using a circular motion. When the fine rubber powder gets dirty (it absorbs a small amount of the colour of the watercolour), clean the paper with a brush, and remove the dust. Clean the paper with a soft synthetic or natural brush, removing the residue. Once cleaned, the pad has completely removed all traces of the graphite pencil. Can also be used if a watercolour has several charcoals and sanguine powder stains.
The cleaning cushion is also useful to restore papers. Simply sprinkle the rubber powder over the paper to be cleaned. Use a brush to spread the powder and finally remove the remaining powder.
The cleaning cushion is also very useful to remove the graphite strokes from photographs. Gently spread the powder with the cleaning cushion and remove the residue with a soft brush.
