We are making history with this challangeing and exciting medium...... but what is the history of the pigment as we know it today? An article addressing this would be a great newsletter feature. I can't volunteer another person, but WC's resident historian. Bruce,(AFewGoodPigments) is doing an outstanding job of pastel history in the Soft Pastel Forum.....hint, hint, Madam Coordinator :wink2: )

What a timely ad for La Grandes in the current issue PJ....

"Created for Picasso who wanted the freedom to paint without a brush on any surface," Good trivia that would be a positive factor on "selling " the impressed public....(dang sure sold me on La Grandes! )
