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.
Purchased two of these, one in Cobalt, one in Deep Blue for glass painting. The cobalt was a bit lighter, but still a nice color. I just wouldn't call it a true cobalt blue. Almost closer to a deeper sky blue when painted on glass. The deep blue paint was true to color. Both worked great.
This is a very volatile and toxic product, but it is so much fun to use! Ventilate, respirate and allow your projects to de-gas before bringing into your living space. I have used this to make castings the size of bottle caps and have had excellent results casting in tin candle molds as well as glassware. I believe this company makes another product similar to this with less odor but that resin has a less glass like appearance than this one.
