Scottish Photographic Federation
Founded in 1903, the Scottish Photographic Federation (SPF) is a non-profit-making body which includes in its objects the discovery, promotion and protection of amateur photography throughout Scotland, and is the only body recognized by international agencies as representing the interests of Scottish Camera Clubs on a national basis. Most Scottish Camera Clubs are affiliated to the SPF and thus participate together, and against each other, in inter-Club, National and International Competitions.
This lead holder is visually very similar to the MUCH more expensive Rotring 600 2mm lead holder. It is all- metal, and is very nice to work with. The internal lead tube appears to be brass. The finish, however, is delicate. Very easy to scratch. But since this is a professional tool and not jewelry, that doesn't really matter. Especially at this price. I bought a bunch!
So far I really like this, much better than Das clay. It has no unpleasant odor and is very smooth, takes detail well. Has a distinct leather hard phase where you can work that way, really neat. Hasn't been long enough to really test finished strength though as that takes two weeks (it's dry though in a day or two).
I'm going to go ahead and give this product 5-Stars, even though it's not what I was looking for in a pastel paper. I'm into photo-realism and fine details ,and there is too much texture for that, even after blending. The quality is right up there, and there is plenty of tooth as I did do some practicing on a sheet. I'm sure I'll find a use for it. It's just too nice to return.
