Colored Pencil Society of America
The Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) was founded in 1990 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to artists over 18 years of age working with colored pencil. With about 1600 members worldwide and over 25 District Chapters in the US, CPSA provides opportunities for colored pencil artists to network. The Society is run by a Governing Board consisting of twelve artists and professionals who volunteer their service to ensure benefits to the membership and the future success of the organization. The Society provides two opportunities for colored pencil artists to exhibit their work. Both exhibitions offer cash awards and are juried to promote the highest aesthetic standards of fine art to the public. CPSA is also one the few art organizations to participate proactively in the development of a standard for their medium. With the increased use of colored pencil for creating fine art, CPSA believed it was crucial to have a standard of light fastness for this medium. Consequently, the organization has conducted ongoing test for colored pencil light fastness since 1991.
I love the texture and look of these beautiful cards. The only thing I wish I had done is read the description more closely and see that they were not 8.5 x 11, which is what size I usually print my cards on. But not to worry, I enjoy watercolor and other forms of self expression so my family and friends are getting even nicer cards than they usually get with these cards. Love them just as they are! Prices are outta sight and delivery was immediate! The best of everything in a box of cards! Thanks, MisterArt.com!
MisterArt.com's unbeatable price on these pads is what urged me to become a VIP member! Now I own ALL THE COLORS! These Marvy Matchables have been the stalwart, gold standard stamp pads and inks for decades! Easy to store and use, and with a re-inker these pads will last for years of heavy stamping. They aren`t the most archival ink pads you can buy, but I have projects that are 20 years old that are still holding their color.All the shades are quite vivid, but my favorites are the prussian blue, english red and bottle green which can be used in place of black in some compositions to great effect. The ink can be used to tint polymer clay as well.
