The Benefits of Using
Electric Pencil Sharpeners
Electric pencil sharpeners have recently become so popular, that if you don't have one you really have to ask yourself - "Why not?"
You're and artist and you use pencils regularly. It doesn't matter if you're just beginning or if you've been a professional of many years. You know the importance of having good, sharpened pencils on hand.
Without some kind of sharpener this isn't easy to do. When you don't have a pencil sharpener it makes life even more difficult.
What could make matters worse is if you're also using low quality art pencils which are often made from cheap wood and second-rate pencil lead.
Electricity powered sharpeners can help solve these issues and make sure that you always have sharp pencils on hand when you need them.
You know that your pencils can wear down easily. Artists who use pencils regularly can go through regular and colored pencils pretty quickly. This really would have been a pain in the times when all they had were sharp objects like knives to keep their pencils sharp.
Why are electric pencil sharpeners better than hand powered?
- Electric is faster. Electric sharpeners can sharpen a dull pencil in just seconds. This makes it easy to break in new pencils or to sharpen old pencils that are getting dull.
- Electric sharpens better. Pencils are sharpened to a fine point that is also balanced, which makes them easier to draw with.
Those aren't the only reasons....
Hand powered pencil sharpeners can make your fingers and hand sore when you have to do many at the same time. Also, they can cause you to sharpen your pencils unevenly which make them more difficult to draw with.
An electric sharpener ensures that you always have an evenly balanced, sharp pencil whenever you need one.
When considering important art supplies, it is a good idea to buy an electric sharpener. This is certainly one art supply you don't want to be without.
