Extensive review of ColorGrande™ at DealsAmongUs, which says: 

I have to say that this is one of the more creative and unique products that I have received. I was very happy that the frame is a solid wood that can be painted. I know that this will take some time to color, and since it is foldable, I can color at my own pace. If you want a unique piece of art that you colored, be sure to check out ColorGrand™.
