New York Foundation for the Arts
The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) was created in conjunction the New York State Council on the Arts in 1971. The NYFA enables contemporary artists to create and share their works and provides the broader public with opportunities to experience and understand the arts. The Foundation accomplishes this by providing responsive leadership and advocacy, offering financial and informational support and building collaborative relationships with others who are committed to the arts in New York State and throughout the United States.
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).
It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.
