Close... If you buy the 2mm refills then they fit in a 2mm mechanical pencil...
Awesome so ill just buy a bunch of the refills... I have a few mechanical pencils
That is good to know....
Question about this technique, are you applying the brush technique right after you apply the paint when it is still wet? Or are you applying after it has dried?
That depends on your paint. E'tac never fully hardens so you can come back days later and still work it. Createx products cures and then you can't erase it.
Okay because I am currently using wicked but received some com-art samples as well as golden. Do you know if these are fast drying or stay relatively soft?
Also depends what surface your painting on. Wicked is erasable - check out Cory stClair videos.
How long after he lays down the paint does he erase? Any paint can be erased before it cures, even 2K. And also how aggressive and with what you erase.
He erase's as he goes I presume and uses mostly the electric eraser from what I have seen. Illustration erases easily for a few days in my experience
Wicked does not easily erase . It scrapes off with great difficulty. I have some com art what do u guys think of that? Worth a try?

Com art erases fine. And scratches well. It works incredibly well on slightly porous surfaces.
Golden is great paint too. A bit thicker than com art. Coverage about the same as createx illustration, just a little tougher.
I obviously have used too many paints!
What surface are you using?
Useful commentary though. I found schminke really hard to erase/scratch on yupo or art card as well.
Interesting to hear people's experience with different paints and media, my own experience is that whatever paint or substrate I try i always come back to etac efx on G4 paper, gesso mdf or claybord.

Not tried the efx, probably will sometime.
I prefer gessoboard over anything. Including claayboard. Yupo is not for me.
Nice tips, i only have the 4mm pen so will have to invest in a 2mm version
