I cut a jumbo Popsicle stick down to fit the square edged Sofft cover sponge to use as a broad edge tool. The Bamboo shoots uses this tool. Then I used dried out baby wipes to spread the pastels. And I love using my eraser (Tombow Mono Zero Elastomer Eraser) to remove color from my substrate then shadowing the letters with pencils or ink. Also used a flat edge paint brush dipped in some water - damp brush - and picked up color - the word "dreams"
