Brooklyn Watercolor Society
In 1972, a group of 10 avid watercolor artists assembled together in one of their homes and formed the Brooklyn Watercolor Society. It was decided at the earliest meetings that membership in the organization would be selective, in order to assure a professional quality to exhibits and presentations. It was also decided that a requirement for membership would be that the watercolor artist must live, work, or have been born in Brooklyn. The Society meets monthly to discuss ideas and issues concerning the watercolor artist, to share their latest paintings and professional accomplishments, to organize painting trips and other special events, and to plan group exhibitions and watercolor demonstrations within Brooklyn and its surrounding regions. The Society began exhibiting as a group in 1974 and has presented several group exhibits every year since.
I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.
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.
