Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California
The Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California is dedicated to establishing and maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and design in clay and glass. The ACGA began as the Association of San Francisco Potters in 1945. The Association now has over 500 members including clay and glass artists, students, patrons and supporters, galleries, network organizations and corporate sponsors from throughout California. A primary goal of the ACGA is to provide opportunities for members to exhibit and sell their work. The Association regularly presents museum and gallery exhibitions of clay and glass, as well as the annual Clay and Glass Festival in July at the Palo Alto Art Center. The ACGA sponsors and promotes programs that benefit its members and the community. The Association also works with the Clay and Glass Arts Foundation, Craft Emergency Relief Fund, and Potters for Peace, and sponsors workshops at Bay Area community colleges and art centers. The ACGA maintains four regional libraries with books and videos available to its members.
Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!
I rely on this product to seal and coat my castings. I have been using this with my poly resin for many years.
I have a tip for folks to use if you want the outcome to be more glossy: After you have sprayed your pieces, cover them with a dust-free, plastic container, or tray. Leave it to dry inside the covering overnight. The next day it should be dry, and shiny as glass.
I have found that if you are using This spray in a very dry location, or in very low humidity, it dries too quickly for the gloss to set. Covering slows that process down considerably, and allows the gloss to settle.
