Barbizon School

The Romantic School in the first part of the 19th century was producing few landscapes. However, with the exposure to certain landscape artists from England, a group of painters named the Barbizon School came to influence an entire style, and eventually also the early Impressionists. A region in the forest southeast of Paris called Fontainebleau gave the group their moniker. Drawing directly from nature, the members of the Barbizon School created pictures of clarified unity. Romanticized tableaus of the interiors of the forest compelled the painters, who included Jean-Francois Millet, Rosa Bonheur and Camille Corot. A passion for the farming lifestyles of the countryside drew these painters together, and resulted in grand yet calm compositions of agrarian people in the celebrated landscape. Artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin were influenced by the honesty and expression within these painters’ work.

I used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!

I rely on this product to seal and coat my castings. I have been using this with my poly resin for many years. I have a tip for folks to use if you want the outcome to be more glossy: After you have sprayed your pieces, cover them with a dust-free, plastic container, or tray. Leave it to dry inside the covering overnight. The next day it should be dry, and shiny as glass. I have found that if you are using This spray in a very dry location, or in very low humidity, it dries too quickly for the gloss to set. Covering slows that process down considerably, and allows the gloss to settle.

I wish the all the álcohol ink companies would narrow the bottle openings. They are way TOO big! It gives you little control. Any chance a company can come up with a more needle-nosed opening?
