be used, but the delineator should be careful not to smear the image while working with this medium. Ink is an outstanding medium on Mylar and can be applied by pen, brush, and airbrush, as shown in Figure 15.2. Ink can be a problem in that it may flake from the surface of the drawing when dry. For color renderings it is possible to paint or airbrush large areas with Easter-egg or food-coloring dyes mixed with vinegar. This technique will not damage the Mylar surface, and later detailing can be done with plastic pencil, graphite pencil, and ink. The Easter-egg and food-coloring dyes can be removed with Mylar erasers for changes at any lime. To remove these dyes from Mylar, tho delineator should first moisten the area to be changed with a small amount of water on a Q-tip, and then carefully erase, using a Mylar eraser.
