World Organization of China Painters
The World Organization of China Painters (WOCP) is a non-profit group dedicated to the appreciation and enrichment of the fine art of painting on porcelain. On January 17, 1962, Pauline A. Salyer started a china painting organization in the state of Oklahoma. In April 1967, she founded the World Organization of China Painters. One of the many objectives of the WOCP is to preserve a collection of fine hand painted porcelain. The collection serves to educate and deepen the appreciation of this fine art for posterity. The Organization publishes a bimonthly magazine, "The China Painter". It features educational material, colored photos of hand painted porcelain by members and photos of state and country porcelain exhibits on display in the Museum. The magazine serves as a communication network for members providing information about states, clubs, china shows and conventions.
Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
