Canadian Artists' Representation
CARFAC (Canadian Artists' Representation / le Front des Artistes Canadiens) was founded in 1968 and is a national, non-profit organization of professional visual artists whose objectives are to help visual artists in the practice of their profession, to improve the status of visual artists and to promote the visual arts. CARFAC has achieved endorsement of the principle of fair compensation through payment of fees to artist when their works are shown in public galleries. CARFAC works on artists' behalf on areas under federal jurisdiction taxation (income tax and GST), international relations and trade (export of art works), customs regulations and health and safety for artists.
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 used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!
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.
