002 Defining CP and lightfastness

IMG_3323.JPG

Lisa and John discuss what constitutes a colored pencil and the lightfastness of this medium.

How do you define what a colored pencil is?

The Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) has their own definition of what a colored pencil is and some items on their list have changed in recent years.

The hosts discuss differences in lightfast ratings and differences in the scales used to make the determination.

should an artist test for themselves?  Should an artist disclose the lightfastness of the piece they have for sale?
