Don't Use White-Out!

How to Become a Comic Strip, Comic Book and Graphic Novel Artist



Tools of the Trade

19. WHITE PAINT - Use white gouache or tempra paint to correct inking errors or white gesso. You can put these down smoothly to make a good drawing layer.

Alternatives
You can use a blade to scrape ink off the paper.

Redraw the offending section on a separate piece of paper and paste the new section art over the old section of the art.

20. RUBBER CEMENT - is an adhesive used for pasting in art or lettering corrections. It is used wet on both surfaces that make contact. Then it is allowed to dry to form a bond. The solvents evaporate and the "rubber" portion remains behind, forming a strong, yet flexible bond.

There is also one-coat rubber cement which only has to be put on one surface and allowed to dry before pasting to other surface.

21. RUBBER CEMENT ERASER/PICK-UP - It is made of natural, crepe rubber. Designed for erasing dried excess rubber cement and cleaning up areas around glued surfaces. Roll gently over dried adhesive until it balls up and then brush away.
