CP removal with "make-up" pad?

Some post I read here in the last couple of weeks -- (post may have been older) mentioned using make-up pads or make-up cleaning pads for "erasing" CP. However that was not the subject of the post and the search function on my wet canvas does not work -- except when I try to go somewhere-- then it says " no match found" grrrrr--


Anyway if anyone knows about this removal tip -- and is able to suggest a brand name,, could you please post here -- It would be very much appreciated by this newbie!
Thanks!

Are these make-up pads fused with a cleaner/solvent? Are you referring to a particular type? I have some plain make-up pads that I bought at Walmart but rarely use them. I haven’t ever observed anything about these particular pads that would erase CP, graphite etc. I have noticed with a very light CP layer that they smear and take away from the depth/vibrancy as it blends with the non layered parts of the paper.

I am curious, though. So maybe someone can chime in and let us both know.

I haven't seen that post, but could it have referred to nail varnish remover pads? The stuff on those is pretty strong, and I imagine it would disolve/remove CP (though I'd also imagine it would damage the paper as well).

Re: CP removal with "make-up" pad?

Know absolutely nothing about the onses mentioned in the post --but it was a definite act of removal using the pads -- that was mybe 2 weeks ago that I saw the post and then about 3 or 4 days ago I saw someone on youtube actually do it -- but alas they did not list the name of the pad and I can't remember the video name -- but it sure worked -- it was the kind of mark you make accidentally when you are sketching and the pencil slips -- one wipe and the mark was gone.


I have been crawling over my history anc I try again -- if I find the video I will post a link here.
Thanks for joining in...

By chance I read a very old thread (from 2008 (!)) where this is mentioned - it's the 6th post down, from TessDB, though it doesn't go into detail about brands etc, it just says 'use the rough side' - from the way TessDB puts it, though, I get the impression that brand isn't really important.

Re: CP removal with "make-up" pad?

Thanks Jane -- and I also have an update -- seeing that the make-up pads are expensive and figuring that the ones that would work had to have some chemical in them, I invested in a pack of Huggies ("simply clean" and "fragrance free") --



They don't remove anything completely - but they did severely lighten a dark mass -- however, unless it was on really good paper, serious efforts a removal would damage the paper only to get the color to "severely lighter".


BUT I was amazed to see how well the Huggie sheet blended colors with just a very light swipe- no wetting of the paper-- tests were done with Derwent Artist WC Pencils (my Favorite) and Inktense pencils. Also, if you wrap the huggie thingy around a dull point or a pencil head, you can get a nice effect just swiping across a single layer of lay-down. Also, don't have to wait for anything to dry.

BUT the huggie does diddly-squat with Prismacolors and Lyra Polycolors (and I assume other non-WC pencils).
