I make lifelike mannequin figures and am making 10 miners for an underground gold mining exhibit. It is very damp, and damage to the clothing is a huge concern. I tried several other products, i.e. mildewcide sprays and brushed on polyester resin, but in a trial run, I still had problems. I finally was told to try the Liquitex Matte Medium. I have fully immersed some clothing but normally found brushing it on with a small roller the best way to apply it. While stiffening somewhat the clothing remained natural looking and has a finish that I'm confident will repel the water in this damp environment. The figures have not been installed yet but I'm pretty certain the outcome will be positive when they are.
Most beautiful colors I have ever used! I will never buy my pencils anywhere else! The price is so much better than anywhere I have bought before with not nearly the quality. I love having the erasers at the top to correct my mistakes without having to reach for one. The colors are deep and alive, and when used next to the other pencils, they shine while the others look grainy. I have over 1,000 pencils and these are my favorites by far. Shipping was excellent, and you have me as a customer for life. Thanks, MisterArt,com!
