    Do you chalk your wacom?

    i notice my hand sticks to my wacom, i thought maybe i could use chalk to stop this happening, or clean it with some thing special, my hand doesn't drag along paper like this.

    sounds like a possible method of damaging the 1500 megawatt wacom ultra-low-friction heavy duty super colliding super overlay sheet. Small particles trapped between the nib and the overlay may damage the surface film of the overlay sheet. Rub some Old Spice onto your palms for best results.

    Chalk? bad move dude.
    What you really want is to head on down to your local metal working shop and ask them to dip the edge of your hand in some Teflon coating. Works a charm.

    If you hold you pen like this you could tuck your sweater in between you little finger and ring finger, the ring finger will hold the it all in place by just being in the same position as it would anywayAttachment 243444

    Thin cotton gloves ( from photo store to handle negatives) w all the fingers but pinky cut out. My hands don't catch on a wacom, but they sure do on a tabletPC (heat) and I've heard they do on Cintiqs.

    Sweaty hands?? well, guess what? today is your lucky day my friend!!!!!! I had the same problem until yesterday, forget about all those loco tricks you used to try....... hahaha now I sound like one of those boring advertisements that show on TV at 3am.... no, what you need is to get yourself a smudge guard... i just got myself one and is a real blessing... just go to www.smudgeguard.com and you won't regret it, I did't.

    P.S. hope I don't get in trouble for making advertisments of other sites, if i'm violating any rule just let me know.

    Thumbs down don't chalk your wacom.

    If your hand sticks to the Wacom tablet, you should really try the SmudgeGuard glove. I have one and it's very useful! Even the Wacom Company in Australia is endorsing the SmudgeGuard glove from their own site. Check it out here:

    As one other member said, you really won't regret it!

    ive ordered a smudge guard. should be here in 2 weeks. on a nice note, the lady who is the brainchild behind the product emailed me personally to respond to a problem i had with shipping, and she seemed genuinely enthusiastic and appreciative of my business. appears to be a small company with down to earth, honest, hardworking people behind it

    woah, i just sounded like a telemarketer...

    Evidently this is all the rage in Hollywood. Having completely immobilized their faces, they are now looking for new places to Botox, and sweaty palms are now as much a thing of the past as being able to smile or frown.
