National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature
The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature (NCCIL) is a non-profit organization incorporated in February of 1997 in the Abilene, Texas. NCCIL enhances visual and verbal literacy by celebrating the best original art published in children’s literature. The Center strives to honor the art of illustration and recognize the contribution of these artists, educate children and families about illustrated literature, provide programming that will increase appreciation of children’s books and the art in them, provide visual and verbal literacy training for educators who inspire children, and establish a presence nationally through exhibition partners and other art institutions.
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.
So far I really like this, much better than Das clay. It has no unpleasant odor and is very smooth, takes detail well. Has a distinct leather hard phase where you can work that way, really neat. Hasn't been long enough to really test finished strength though as that takes two weeks (it's dry though in a day or two).
