National Cartoonists Society
The National Cartoonists Society is the world's largest and most prestigious organization of professional cartoonists. The primary purposes of the NCS are to advance the ideals and standards of professional cartooning in its many forms, to promote and foster a social, cultural and intellectual interchange among professional cartoonists of all types, and to stimulate and encourage interest in and acceptance of the art of cartooning by aspiring cartoonists, students and the general public. The Society's offices are located in Winter Park, Florida. In addition, the NCS has chartered 16 regional chapters throughout the United States and one in Canada.
I've used Pebeo's Vitrea 160 paints for years. I love this stuff. When buying these paints, remember to get the thinner too. I use a stiff stencil brush with a dabbling motion to get even coverage. If bubbles appear, the paint is too thick or you've added too much water, but don't fret just let it dry a little and brush over it again. Have fun!!!
I wanted something different to make flowers out of, and these turned out to be wonderful. They hold creases well, and a dab of white craft glue held perfectly. The results were striking, and they cut cleanly in both the punch and with scissors.
I apply these paints in small plastic bottles and add a metal tip to outline and apply. The only thing I dislike is you never know which color will change to a different color after baking. Mostly I use the Pebeo 150. I find they do not change color after baking. Another problem is they do not have it in white,first time I used what looked like white, it turned ivory and even looked more yellow than ivory. I just wish there were more art suppliers who carry it. Most of the time I order it.
