Welcome to dickblick
After two years of development and testing, Caran d'Ache has launched its newest innovation — the Full Blender Bright.
A colorless oil-wax medium for blending, dry mixing, and intensifying colors, this single tool combines the properties of a blender (mixing and unifying) and a burnisher (consolidating and adding a gloss finish).
This unique medium is the ideal complement to Caran d'Ache colored pencils, graphites, and wax pastels, and an indispensible tool for professional artists, art students, or anyone who loves drawing and wants to add a new dimension to his or her work.
Use the Full Blender Bright to add brilliance, sheen, and a gloss finish that brings it closer to painting. Ideal for mixing and blending, it unifies colors, blending them together and mixing them to increase their intensity and to soften pencil lines. It also can be used to make some areas of a drawing water-resistant, before or after adding color. It can fix a drawing, even one created with watersoluble pencils — and it increases lightfastness.
Finally, the Full Blender Bright's hexagonal shape allows it to be highly personalized. Used as a block, its shape evolves over time, making it possible to work delicately with its edges or to cover large areas with its flat surfaces. Used as a sharpened pencil, its fine but strong point offers great precision for use in detailed work on a range of supports, including paper, cardboard, fabric, wood, pottery, and stone.

Only blender for oil-based color pencils
from East coast US
Comments about Caran d'Ache Caran d’Ache Full Blender Bright:
Great blender (well, the only blender) for oil-based colored pencils, like Polychromos and Derwent. Works well. Few art supply stores can afford to stock it, due to Caran D'Ache's volume purchase requirements.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this blender and it's the only one that I use. I've used this with various brands of colored pencils and have had no complaints. Blick Art did a great job shipping it and the rest of my order. Definitely a product that I will continue to purchase here.

I use another, grittier blender first then I finish with this blender. It enriches the color and gives a nice finishing glow.
I think these are best blenders made.
I use these to blend all my pencil work, wax and oil pencils.
This my favorite blender

I am a color pencil artist and I've tried all the others and always go back to carn d'ache blender bright

Working in layers with colour pencil, I do a lot of colour blending and burnishing. When I need to push it all together to make the work look like a painting (not a drawing) this blender does the job. It can't save your muscles from aching on a big work but it can get the job done in one go - and you can still add another layer.

This is a MUST HAVE.
These make colored pencil literally pop off the page with intense color and blend colors flawlessly. I will never go back to the wood core blender pencils now that I've tried these.
Love it for blending poly chrome colored pencils.
What I had hoped for
from Berkeley CA
While a great blender for color pencils. I am using this pencils wax/oil properties as a resist when working with Ink washes. I can sharpen the point to draw detailed images that show through when a ink wash with water is brushed over it. Best of all the products I have tried for doing this.
I love this blending pencil
By Don't have one
I use this for Color pencils. I like that you don't need to sharpen the pencil to use it. It blends with easy effort and with little wear on the pencil. You get two pencils I gave one to a friend to enjoy too.
