Salem Art Association
The Salem Art Association (SAA) is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to art education, art appreciation and historic preservation in the greater Salem area. The history of the Association dates to 1919 when a group of dedicated community leaders formed the Salem Arts League. In 1938 the League incorporated as the Salem Art Center Association and obtained a gallery space at Salem High School. In 1948 the Art Center Association changed its name to the Salem Art Association (SAA). SAA moved to its present location in Bush's Pasture Park in 1953 when it was entrusted with the care and operation of the Asahel Bush House. As Salem's oldest and largest visual arts resource, SAA has played a major role in the cultural development of Salem.
Be very sure you have selected the colors/ pattern you will be using. Have found push molds are not very tolerant. I have read in numerous places that a thin coating of cornstarch for easy clay removal will help. This doesn't work for me(tried different molds). The result is film on piece that I need to then use thin paint brush to remove. Anxious for suggestion, as I find this very time consuming.
you should buy this ink if:
- you want waterproof ink (needs special solution to clean nibs, hot water does not suffice)
- you want ink that runs through pens easily (it's quite viscous)
- you want affordable ink (i got it cheap with a coupon at michael's)
- you want volume/value (i
I think this is a lot of ink, wrote two pages' worth of text, and i haven't even noticed the absence of ink)
you shouldn't buy this ink if:
- you're looking for a rich black (i think the color's around 50% gray, it's pretty consistently one shade of gray, at least with one layer)
This is a pretty nice set, the pencils are pretty good quality and the sharpener is very sharp. The eraser broke the first day I used it, but I have other erasers and ordered this mainly for the pencils. :)
