Re: Copying pencils? ()

So, those pencils may have been licked too many times causing us to have to lick them more.

I wonder what the "lead" was made of in them. I'm sure (nearly sure) it wasn't actually lead.

My mother does a lot of painting, not fine painting, but painting that pays. I've seen her still licking pencils and forming bristles in her mouth (she paints mostly with acrylic, it's probably harmless).

I'd say she's not that old (71), though I'm sure some younger people would disagree with that being "not that old".
