There’s no aspect of life that occasional blunders aren’t part of, but messing up your art can be particular frustrating. Maybe it’s ink that blobs up in the worst spot, or markers that go outside the line. Perhaps your carefully applied watercolor has bled into the margins, or your calligraphy has gone all wonky.
While digital artists might be able to lean on the power of UNDO, traditional artists have their own tricks for fixing mistakes.
In this post we’ll gather some of the best tools you can use to correct accidents in your drawings and paintings.

Pentel Presto! Jumbo Correction Pen
For medium size mistakes Pentel Presto pens are a great choice. The white corrective fluid works over ball point and rollerball pens as well as felt tip marker ink. The fluid dries smooth enough to draw over again too.
While this does have a fine point, it isn’t the smallest on our list – keep reading for how to fix tiny flaws!
Sometimes erasers really are the best tool for fixing mistakes: if you need to remove small bits of ink from paper you might try a sand eraser. The grit helps brush away the top layer of the paper, reducing the ink without the need for corrective fluid.
