American Architectural Foundation
The American Architectural Foundation (AAF) was founded in 1943 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. The AAF is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to cultivating the public’s understanding of architecture and the human experience. The AAF initiates education and outreach efforts, which foster public participation in the design process, encourage public stewardship of America’s architectural heritage, and promotes alliances between architects and the communities in which they live and practice. Each year AAF is on the ground in more than 75 cities across the country, helping local leaders use design as a catalyst for innovation and action.
Be very sure you have selected the colors/ pattern you will be using. Have found push molds are not very tolerant. I have read in numerous places that a thin coating of cornstarch for easy clay removal will help. This doesn't work for me(tried different molds). The result is film on piece that I need to then use thin paint brush to remove. Anxious for suggestion, as I find this very time consuming.
These pencils are GREAT for sketching. The fit in the hand is far superior over round pencils and they don't go rolling off when you set them down. Unlike other thick pencils I've used, the graphite in these is very smooth - none of these nasty chunks that scratch up the paper or glue seams that fail, busting the lead apart and wasting half your pencil. By far,this is my sketching pencil of choice. Oh, and to sharpen, the wife gave me a makeup sharpener - its plenty wide enough, cheap and easy to get.
