Removing Pencil Marks from Wallpaper

How do I remove a pencil drawing, without damaging the wallpaper? The paper is pink and has love hearts that are raised.

Try an artist eraser. It's light tan and crumbly (school kids use it) or you can use the artist gray lift eraser looks like putty and you work it in your hands and then press onto the paper that lifts pencil when you want to lighten areas in a dark drawing to give light. It won't tear your wall paper or leave any residue as you do not scrub with it, but press and lift and knead the substance to clean it and repeat until all marking is gone. If there's a pencil impression made in the wall paper, then also try the artist's electric eraser and use lightly in the indention. You should be able to purchase these any/all of these items at Hobby Lobby or an office supply store. Good luck!!

I've read that a ball of white bread works! You're supposed to smush a piece of bread that has the crust removed & rub this around the wallpaper. It's supposed to "dry-clean" it! Another great thing is found at the art supply store. It's an eraser that's soft & pliable like play-dough. It's called a "Kneadable Eraser". Ask for it. It's made for artists that don't want to ruin their high quality paper when removing pencil marks: http://www.thea  adableEraser.htm
