Today I found a Ballantyne sweater that has cableknit pattern on its front side, yet its back side has no pattern. To me this seems weird because I have never seen a sweater like that before. Would most people who see a sweater like that perceive it to be weird? What is the reason why a maker like Ballantyne would do that? Are they just being cheap, or is there a better explanation?
How is limited edition not equal to an inkjet reproduction? A limited edition is an injket reproduction isn't it?I could be wrong, but from what I have read about limited edition prints, for no reason that is warranted, they do not have a social stigma attached to them (or else it lesser) whereas prints made from the exact same materials, which are not called "limited edition," do. IMO that disparity is ridiculous. Either they should both have the same stigma, or...
Thanks for the insights. Are 1:1 inkjet prints of the original considered to be "more respectable" than reproduced oil paintings? I had that notion before I made this thread, that reproductions are probably considered to be "cheap Fakes." The prevalence of that attitude is a shame IMO, because that means that no great work of art in painting form can be enjoyed by anyone who does not have access to the original. Wouldn't every work of art be much better and more...
I do not know much about paintings, but in the movies/tv shows I've seen throughout my life, the characters with reproductions of famous paintings are always mocked. I presumed that that attitude is also present in real-life, but maybe it's not.Aren't reproductions of paintings akin to wearing logos on clothing, which is frowned upon as being tacky? Maybe reproduced paintings aren't perceived that way. I'm just asking to be sure.My inclination is to prefer oil over...
This thread is asking the question: Which is more respectable: inkjet art prints of famous paintings, or oil painting reproductions of famous paintings? I realize that both options are very bad compared to having the original painting. However, since originals of famous paintings cost upwards of a million dollar, the two lesser options will have to do. I also realize that a third option is to buy only original paintings that are not famous, but then the...
No, this post is not a gag. The question in the OP was and is 100% serious. Prior to making this thread, I did not know that "distilled water" was any different than typical bottled water, which is given fancy names like "spring water" even though it is just tap water in bottles. The posts in this thread have taught me that distilled water is actually different, and removes most of the chemicals, in water so thank you all for that.I do not see anything funny about...
Thanks for the insights.Do those things remove all chlorine, fluoride and every other chemical that has no business touching clothing?I do not know much about this subject, hence I am not aware of if "distilled" water accomplishes that purpose, or if "external osmosis" accomplishes that purpose. If those processes do that, that's great. Do they?For the refillable water bottles, where are the best places to get those filled up?
Is there any place to purchase pure water for the purpose of hand-washing clothing? By pure water, I mean water without any of the stuff that is usually found in water as a result of man putting it there, that will be harmful to clothing, like chlorine, fluoride, industrial pollution, remnants of flushed pills, etc. I know that bottled water won't work, because that is equivalent to tap water. Does any solution exist that will allow me to avoid using impure water? ...
Most of the time, if the piece is made in a country with respectable manufacturing standards, then the online listing for the piece will name that country, because that is a selling point that the seller will want to use to tempt the people to buy the piece.Conversely, sellers realize that if the piece is made in a country with manufacturing standards of ill-repute, saying so will repel people from buying it; hence in that case, they will omit naming the country of origin...
But by drycleaning the jacket too, isn't he just swapping one problem for others?Instead of of having the fading problem, won't he (potentially) have problems of the drycleaning weakening the jacket material, and deteriorating the fusibles in it (if there are any)?
