Can someone tell me the difference between a blending pencil and a burnishing pencil? I have used blending pencils but not burnishing, so I have no clue as to what a burnishing pencil does different. Thanks for any help.

Burnishing Pencil

A burnishing pencil crushes the texture of the paper and brings the color into the valleys of the paper texture. I believe they are one of the same. BTW.. my hubby and I also live in the Sierras.. Grass Valley

Thanks for the reply clydeine. I checked with 'Derwent' colored pencils and they actually sell both blenders and and burnishing pencils.

Anyways, I love Grass Valley. I think I like it better than here in Grizzly Flats. Getting a tad tired of shoveling snow, I am.
