I wanted to thank you for your online store, MisterArt.com, and particularly for the speedy processing and shipment of my order. I know that my order wasn't a large one, but as I am physically disabled...and the swiftness of your shipping is invaluable to me as it is very difficult for me to get out and "shop" as most others can.

Styles & Periods
Earthworks

Earthworks are usually large-scale sculptures installed in the natural landscape or composed of materials taken from a specific site. Inherent in this approach to making art is a break with the dependence of artists on conventional sites for viewing, selling or displaying art, such as museums and galleries. Earth artists often take their work away from the cities and create monumental works in remote places. The condition and lifespan of an earthwork are always dictated, to some degree, by nature. Many times only the artist has a chance to view the completed work before it is compromised by man or ravaged by nature. The element of impermanence is crucial to the concept of many pieces. Extensive documentation of Earthworks is common. Maps, videos, drawings, writings and photographs are often made by the artists and taken into the galleries for viewing. Sculptor Robert Smithson has taken materials, such as rocks and soil, from selected sites and presented them in galleries as secondary, or non-sites, connected to and dependent upon the original, non-gallery site. Relationships to historical architecture, such as Stonehenge, and monuments, such as burial mounds, are apparent in these works, as is an interest in ritual and the experience of man.

i have used it before on metal art projects and really like the translucent properties. it enhances the grinding i do, which is a big part of my work. excellent product…just need to find it "Locally".

35 years painting signs, lettering vehicles, boats, windows and more. I have always used 1 shot lettering enamel and would never use anything else. High gloss, durable and it was in my opinion the best. I preferred the older 1 shot when it had lead in it, but it's still the best lettering enamel by far.

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)
