Blending Stumps & Tortillions
Old art supplies being dragged out from retirement. These are Blending Stumps and Tortillions, used to smear and blend graphite, pastel and charcoal. The stumps and tortillions are both made from rolled felt paper. The stumps are double-ended and the tortillions are single ended. I never noticed until now, but it looks to me as though they are mostly made in China.

Or things we used to use? I am nostalgic for stumps.
