Blender Pencils & Burnisher Pencils
Blender Pencils - a soft colourless pencil made from the binder used for coloured pencils. It allows you to blend two or more colours together to create a new colour. At the same time it physically mixes and smoothes the colours so individual strokes and hard edges are softened.

Burnisher Pencils - a hard colourless pencil which, when used over layers of pigment, provides a rich polished finish. Burnishing pushes the pigment into the paper and leaves a very well blended, photo like finish. It makes the colours look brighter and can give an image a polished or reflective look by sealing it with a heavy layer of colourless wax.

Another use for the Derwent Burnisher Pencil - The waxy properties of the Derwent Burnisher Pencils also make them great for the wax resist technique. To create this effect simply draw your design with the Burnisher pencil and this will add a layer of wax to the surface, then add your graphite or colour. The wax layer from the Burnisher pencil will resist the graphite and colour pencils and so leave part of your artwork the colour of your surface. A straightforward method to use this technique.
