Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists
The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists is a non-profit organization registered in the state of Washington. Its purpose is to perpetuate, improve, and promote the art and craft of stained glass lamp construction. The Association was born in the mind of Carol Conti. As a teacher of the craft of stained glass, she discovered in her students a desire to go beyond glass crafting to actual "creating" using the medium of glass. She nurtured this desire, and in the process found that the creative intuitions of her compatriots blossomed into masterworks through the sharing and support that is inevitable when like-minded people form an 'association'. With the help and encouragement of good friends, this dream was pursued and The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists was formed. The first meeting, in 1991, was attended by 30 lamp artists from Washington State. As of 2012, the ASGLA includes more than 800 member artists from twenty-seven countries and forty-eight states.
After reading that this product wouldn't work on cheap magnetic brass hinges, I tried buying new ones in bronze. After a couple of failures with buying the correct size/type of hinge, I decided to try the rub n buff.For those who asked about using this over cheap hinges that are actually brass color over steel or aluminum (do magnet test), rub n buff does work. I just did it. Soak hinges in mineral spirits or thinner. Spray clean hinges with zinseer123, I used white which I had on hand. Let dry. (I sprayed both sides and let dry over night). Once dry, I applied rub n buff with a rag. Because I used white zinseer123 primer I had to used a toothbrush to apply the rub n buff in the crevices that showed still showed white. I used ebony and autumn gold to create bronze. They look amazing.
I might have gotten this but if this is beginner's ballet (based upon editor's description) why does the cover illustration have a girl en pointe? That doesn't happen until year two or three even. It will give girls the wrong impression--that going en pointe is easy, fast and will happen almost automatically. The cover illustration is enough to not get this book.
