Through reading the recommending material in the study guide I am concerned about some contradictions in the material. Some book say that one way is better than another and some only give one optional indicating that this is the only way. So this post is for those people that have already tacking the exam and has the knowledge on what is ask in the CPF exam or people that have read all the suggested material on the study guild and can give me their best educated guess. I am not concerned on the opinions of which is better, I have my own, just straight facts and what is required to to know on the test. Plus, any helpful suggestions for studying for the test and particular subjects to concentrate on. 1st concern- whether original works on canvas should be stored horizontally (flat) or vertical and the appropriate time to store them flat if any. 2nd concern- I know its best to have a rigid support on canvas and it is best to have a dustcover for many reasons but in the "Caring for Art" by Jill Snyder suggested to cut the corners of the backing to allow air flow. This contradicts what the other books say. In another it said not to use backing on canvas. Clearly some of these books are out of date and the suggested materials and techniques have been proven faulty. How is one studying for the test suppose to interpret these contradictions? 3rd concern-picture wire. There seams to be many different suggestion to hang a picture. It seems only two (I'm guessing, its hard to keep track of what book said what and how many suggest other wise) talks about two point hanging systems. From my understanding or those two books you should never hang a picture with on point because of stress it create on the frame, so does this mean what the other book suggestions are wrong? Again, how are we suppose to interpret these contradictions. Not to mention some of books suggest screw eyes is okay to use (yuck)! Though I am finding reading and studying these material are quite enjoyable, these contradictions are frustrating and creating anxiety about tacking the test this month. I really hope I pass.:icon9: Much advise is needed.
