Started drawing again. Just graphite for now. But would like to know what colored pencils to use for drawing that will work with blending stumps and tortillions

Utilized for blending graphite. Stumps are for the most part twofold finished, bigger and bulkier than the better single-finished tortillons. Both have their individual uses in spite of the fact that I tend to utilize just tortillons - for coarse work I wrap kitchen paper around my finger and utilize that. Never utilize your unprotected finger to mix graphite. The regular oil in your skin will make graphite adhere to your paper in sporadic patches. It once took me two days to continually tone and mix around such a zone before it ended up unnoticeable...

I don't think colored pencils work with those. They are for graphite. You blend colored pencils with either a white pencil or a special non-colored pencil blender.
