I did not use the sanded ampersand board. I bought it to try but thought it would devour my pencils so used Dahler Roney Gunmetal grey. Had never used it before either but was closest to color if the ampersand. Will probably not use it again...lots of grainy surface texture. My favorite is Stonehenge. Anyway, back to design. Instructions very well done until the very end. Almost like the last page missing for final shadings on grapes. Not hard to figure out though. Overall I'd say an A- only because of no final grape shading. Will leave it overnight and see about a few corrections then.
Everything that I have ordered from Ann Kullberg is sent quickly and in perfect condition. The instructions are very clear and well written. The photos are superb.
No complaints from me,I can always be sure that these products are first rate.Dont ever change!!
Very pleased with the detailed info., instructions, photo and prints. First time working on Ampersand and really liked it. I framed the finished project in an antique film I already own and I think it is a perfect old masters look.
Yes, I am very happy with it. I will be doing it next month for my September class. I love the step by step directions --- looks like fun ---- will be doing it on Stonehenge instead of the board.
