National Society of Mural Painters
Originally known as The Mural Painters, the National Society of Mural Painters (NSMP) was founded in 1895 by a group of artists, dedicated to working together to represent the interests of mural painters in major public issues. NSMP collaborated with the Fine Arts Section of the Treasury Department, The Arts Project of the WPA, and the design boards of several World's Fairs. As a member of Artists for Victory, NSMP was allied with activities connected with World War II; many triptych altarpieces were painted for use by the armed forces through the Citizens Committee for the Army and Navy, Inc., and barracks and camps were decorated as well. The current membership is a diverse group of national and international artists qualified by application and acceptance. Society members work with other organizations, actively sponsoring legislation and allocation of funds for the development and commission of public works of art.
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.
Tulip does it again with a new face painting kit. While I can't get my favourite paints (Palmer) in the supplies I need, we, The Balloonatics will test this new kit and see how kid friendly it will be. We will test toxicity, staining, melding of colours, creating special effects, and just how many faces we can paint with one kit. Tulip is wonderful in its other many many products and I highly recommend them. We will post our findings as soon as we test them out.
