I have never had a pencil last this long... It has been 10 months and still haven't used the other two. I am a full time student and constantly lose/break pencils. The grip, weight and smoothness is outstanding. Whenever I forget this pencil at home, I want to kick myself. Best purchase in a very long time.
I loved it and was trying to replace it after a fire and water damage to my apartment.
Unfortunately, I had a difficult time locating it anywhere on internet and it wasn't at Walmart anymore. Hence, I OVER purchased the "Carolina Pad U create" 22x 28 in. that was flimsy and two of them cracked into pieces in the car during winter.--Ouch
The "Wipe-on Wipe Off" Carolina Pad is much much better: a nice size, easy to attach to the wall and likewise easy to remove with simple tape.
Sprayed a sanded antique table twice(sanding lightly with 0000 steel wool in between coats. Cannot find any more cans unless they contain primer. Tried a small amount for a final coat - the pain bubbled. I re sanded that section & am wondering what I can use since I can't get the original paint anywhere.
p.s. I have used this paint on other pieces with perfect results.
