I thought the service was outstanding. I received the shipment quickly and it was packaged nicely. I appreciated the confirmation too. I like to print them and keep them so I can keep track of what I order.
Japanese for 'pictures of the floating world'. Ukiyo-e were popular in the seventeenth to nineteenth-centuries, and depicted kabuki actors, landscapes, and folk tales.
Example: Kitagawa Utamaro's Five Kinds of Ink from the Northern Provinces, early 1790's
Blue pigment originally made from ground lapis lazuli. French ultramarine is an artificial substitute.
Carving to create an overhang; a recess or awkward angle in the surface or form of a three-dimensional object which would prevent easy removal of a cast from a mold. Molds should be designed to eliminate this problem. Ways to cast objects with overhangs include using piece molds and waste molds.
Drawing preliminary to other work, and incorporated into it, thus deprived of independent artistic value. An example is the underdrawing in fresco and panel painting, such as sinopia and abbozzo.
The layer or layers of color on a painting surface applied before the overpainting, or final coat. There are many types of underpainting. One type is an all-over tinting of a white ground. Another is a blocked out image in diluted oil colors that serves as a guide for the painter while developing the composition and color effects.
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.
