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.
We found the trick to using this is to make sure you use enough for the self leveling to take effect. Wish there was some way to get a smooth finish on the short counter-type back splash. Likely should have put down protection on counter and flooded back splash liberally prior to coating counter top. Caution: A thicker coat will require a longer curing time. Be prepared to be without your counter tops for longer than it says in order for them to completely harden.
I like the White Galaxy Marker very much for writing on dark paper, and I have used it to cover another color when I needed to disguise a mistake or simply change effect.
For example, I bought an ornament with name SCARLETT spelled on it and by covering the last 't', I was able to give this to someone with a cat named SCARLET.
If color to be covered is a paint or other pen color, that can make the other color "stain" the white marker tip. This can be avoided if one is sure first color is dry before trying to cover it with white.
I really like the frame. It's sturdy and well made. In the one I've opened, there's a little imperfection in the glass that's not noticeable if it's set at the bottom (horizontal) side of the frame. It showed a plot more at the top.The mat is off white. I was expecting white. I can still use it, though. For the price, it can't be beat.
