WOW! I was recently working on a portrait upon which I over worked the neck resulting in splotchy patches. I had lost the tooth due to too many layers and burnishing and had rectified it somewhat by using Handi-Tak and scotch tape to lift the color; however, I still wasn't totally satisfied with the results.

I was wavering on whether or not the portrait was a goner until tonight when I tried my old electric eraser with a plastic nib! Holy cow! Took off almost ALL the color without damaging the paper!

I had dug up my electric eraser from college days which I purchased from an architect, so I don't know much about it except it works like magic.

Oh.... and here is a tip.... HOLD your drawing down... Do NOT rely on draftsman's tape or your drawing will go spinning off your board! LOL! Voice of experience!
