Pencils illusion
Category: Shape and Color | Added: February 28, 2013 | 22 comments
Here we have a simple optical illusion image of a row of blue artist pencils. As you can see these pencils have eraser ends and the points have been sharpened ready for use. If you count the sharpened points you will see there are seven, but if you count the eraser ends you will see there are only six. So how many pencils in total do you think there are in this picture? Would you say six or seven?

there are actually 12 pencils

There are actually 13 pencils. if you look at the eraser and go up they blend into white. if you look at the led side they go down and blend into white. this means that there are 13 pencils.

Look at the first pencil. It blends into the second, so it does not have an eraser.

on the first pencil if you look closely, it is connected to the second pencil with sharing an eraser.
Posted by MFS Crafty on December 16, 2015
the answer is DIFFICULT Because you cant relly know if its 6 or 7 because the eraser doesnt go with the tip and the pencil doesnt go with the eraser
Posted by jeffry on June 27, 2016
I think there are 6 cuz the first pencil tip has no end

There are 7 pencils as if you look closely you can see that the rubber is not linked with the actual pencil as it is in the middle so thats why i think there is 7 pencils
