klatz asked this question on the artcone forums: hello im new to this forum.
I plan to make one of the macro-flash rings that splogics posted about, should prove useful in situations like this – I hope.
God asked this question on the artcone forums: I came across some art work yesterday on metal grounds. The metal had been treated so that in places (bands across the ground) it was a rich redish/brown which had then been incorporated into the design. It was something that I had never thought of before but I am having a problem finding out which metals would react in this way. The metal was a plate of about 2mm thick if that helps
It was flat to the metal without additional texture or errosion of the surface, also too pale and too rich a colour.

Steve asked this question on the artcone forums: This major retrospective of the work of Canadian photographer Jeff Wall brings together over 50 stunning works produced between the late 1970s and the present day, providing an overview of his entire career. Jeff Wall has played a key role in establishing photography as a contemporary art form, exhibiting his work internationally for over 25 years.
Wall is best known for his large-scale colour transparencies, mounted in wall-hung light boxes which combine the seductive glow of a cinema screen with the physical presence of sculpture. Wallâ€™s works are typified by two approaches, which he characterises as either cinematographic or documentary. For his innovative mise-en-scenes, Wall has pioneered state-of-the-art film and digital techniques to compose meticulously staged scenes.
At first glance they often appear to be snapshots but, on closer inspection, the multi-layered content sometimes seems too bizarre or complex to be real. Wall draws upon a myriad of references from art history, particularly nineteenth century painting. His Picture for Women 1979 directly references Manetâ€™s Un Bar aux Folies-BergÃ¨re whilst the iconic A Sudden Gust of Wind 1993 pays homage to Hokusaiâ€™s exquisite Japanese print. Wall also draws upon cinematic techniques by using actors as protagonists, artificial lighting, staged compositions, and a narrative technique which leads you to contemplate the unseen events leading to the moment depicted. These stunning depictions of urban life tell stories about people, their habitat and the everyday yet enigmatic way they interact.
Included are iconic works like A Sudden Gust of Wind 1993, Milk 1984 and TrÃ¢n DÃºc VÃ¡n 1988-2003, as well as lesser-known photographs which have rarely been exhibited in this country. Developed in close collaboration with the artist, this is the most comprehensive survey of his fascinating career to date, to take place in the UK.
I know I’ll be there
RollTheStones asked this question on the artcone forums: Hey! So I bought silver spray paint a few months ago to do this very elaborate art project, but after I had finished it, I looked at the back of the paint and it said that there was lead in the paint. I’m pretty sure that this is illegal, isn’t it? I bought it from a big chain (Michael’s) and it kind of surprises me that they carry it. I feel really ripped off because I can’t sell my project as I had planned, since I don’t want to give anyone lead poisoning. Also, I have all this leftover paint that I can’t even use. I lost the receipt, but do you still think a refund is possible? Does anyone know if the paint was illegal to sell? Also, if anyone has any idea whether or not I could use some special sealent so that the paint could not chip and thus not cause any harm to anyone else.
