Does someone here have any information about Art Dictionaries?
I will explain the reason of the question:
Many words and materials have different names and I am not talking about
just tranlsating them, but about different ways
of naming the same things...
I will move soon!
Here in Brazil we have a way of naming some materials and the same ones will
be something else in English.
Even understanding English, maybe my Portuguese words won't find the
I will try to get used to things in the Art Stores as soon as possible, but
maybe I will need some references...
Do you have any suggestion?
