Society of Illustrators
On February 1, 1901, a group of nine artists and one advising businessman founded the Society of Illustrators with this credo: "The object of the Society shall be to promote generally the art of illustration and to hold exhibitions from time to time." Since inception, the Society has had a distinguished yet lively history as an active participant in the ever-changing field of illustration. The Society promotes the art of illustration through contributions to community service and student scholarship, annual exhibitions and recognition of achievements in the field. The mission of the society is to promote and stimulate interest in the art of illustration, past, present and future, and to give impetus generally toward high ideals in the art by means of exhibitions, lectures, educational programs, social intercourse, and in such other ways as may seem advisable.
This is an excellent watercolor set to start to work with. I've used this mainly for portrait and nude paintings. Sometimes I'd mix it with a white paste to create my own custom gouache. The beauty of the set is that they are in tubes, so mixing and making your own mixes is very, very easy to do.i have been using this set up for almost 5 years now, and I always come back to this set for my creativity.
I started using PREMO polymer clay before it was called PREMO; I use it in all of my projects. I have sold and shipped my work all over the USA ; as well as to France, Japan , and Hong Kong. My collectors know that if there is ever a problem, I will fix it; I've never had a problem. I have a very good friend who is a professional Chemist. He made plasticizer for me years ago, and I sometimes use it if the clay is too hard.
