National Watercolor Society
Initially conceived in 1920, the National Watercolor Society brings before the public the best of water media painting, representing a wide range of directions and technique, from experimental to traditional and encourages support for watercolor as a vital, enduring and expressive medium. Founded as the California Water Color Society, the name of the society has changed twice: first in 1967, to California National Watercolor Society; then in 1975, when the members voted to become simply the National Watercolor Society. The goals of the National Watercolor Society are to encourage interest and excellence in watermedia paintings by providing quality exhibitions and to act as an educational channel to pertinent information, exhibition opportunities, and beneficial programs to artists and their public. In addition, NWS sponsors programs to encourage and assist education in the arts.
My clay was very useful, and I put it to work a lot; however, after a month, you could tell it was drying out. It's as hard as a rock now. I reccomend getting a smaller container to use in a small period of time!
I never saw it mentioned on the web, but it has a terrible smell like sharpie marker. It dries super fast in the package, even keeping it in a ziplock baggie. Other than that .it was ok but Plus clay is much better in my opinion, and similar in all the good ways.
These are some of the best watercolors out there. The range of colors make choices almost endless, and the quality is fantastic. Creamy and wets easily, mixes and blends well, vibrant and nonfading. Love Daniel Smith!
