The Society of Decorative Painters was organized in 1972 to act as a central dissemination point for information about activities related to decorative painting, to raise and to maintain a high standard for the art of decorative painting, and to stimulate interest in and appreciation for the art form.

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.
Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
I just started using this sketchbook recently, and my first medium was Ink-Tense pencils. The paper worked beautifully, receives the paint, ink, etc, very well. It buckles a little bit when wet, but then flattens out. And so far it lives up to its claim. You CAN use multimedia on both side of the page and it doesn't bleed through. It's a good paper, check it out.
