Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California
The Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California is dedicated to establishing and maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and design in clay and glass. The ACGA began as the Association of San Francisco Potters in 1945. The Association now has over 500 members including clay and glass artists, students, patrons and supporters, galleries, network organizations and corporate sponsors from throughout California. A primary goal of the ACGA is to provide opportunities for members to exhibit and sell their work. The Association regularly presents museum and gallery exhibitions of clay and glass, as well as the annual Clay and Glass Festival in July at the Palo Alto Art Center. The ACGA sponsors and promotes programs that benefit its members and the community. The Association also works with the Clay and Glass Arts Foundation, Craft Emergency Relief Fund, and Potters for Peace, and sponsors workshops at Bay Area community colleges and art centers. The ACGA maintains four regional libraries with books and videos available to its members.
I've used Pebeo's Vitrea 160 paints for years. I love this stuff. When buying these paints, remember to get the thinner too. I use a stiff stencil brush with a dabbling motion to get even coverage. If bubbles appear, the paint is too thick or you've added too much water, but don't fret just let it dry a little and brush over it again. Have fun!!!
I received a pot of gold and one of silver in a "hand me down" box from a friend that included a variety of paints and other art treasures! So I do not know how old these products are. I tried the gold right away on an embossed piece I had laying around and was amazed at how beautiful it worked out. I have been using another gold product in the past, and it is no where near as beautiful as this. I am a believer, and will use Treasure gold forever!
Sprayed a sanded antique table twice(sanding lightly with 0000 steel wool in between coats. Cannot find any more cans unless they contain primer. Tried a small amount for a final coat - the pain bubbled. I re sanded that section & am wondering what I can use since I can't get the original paint anywhere.
p.s. I have used this paint on other pieces with perfect results.
