Brooklyn Watercolor Society
In 1972, a group of 10 avid watercolor artists assembled together in one of their homes and formed the Brooklyn Watercolor Society. It was decided at the earliest meetings that membership in the organization would be selective, in order to assure a professional quality to exhibits and presentations. It was also decided that a requirement for membership would be that the watercolor artist must live, work, or have been born in Brooklyn. The Society meets monthly to discuss ideas and issues concerning the watercolor artist, to share their latest paintings and professional accomplishments, to organize painting trips and other special events, and to plan group exhibitions and watercolor demonstrations within Brooklyn and its surrounding regions. The Society began exhibiting as a group in 1974 and has presented several group exhibits every year since.
I love this glue, but then again I use it differently than what it's normal use is. If you are gluing glass or plastic, I wouldn't use this glue. Otherwise, it is great albeit it does take a bit for it to dry and cure. I actually contacted the manufacturer to see if I could by this stuff by the gallon. Apparently, they only have the 4 oz bottle, but will be offering an 8 ounce bottle soon.
This product works as advertised and cuts very nice circles after you get the hang of it, which doesn't take long. For safety when not in use, be sure to stow the blade so that it is not projecting down as it is when being used.
Note that the recipe on some bottles (1 tsp in 1 pint cold water) makes a too-thin solution. Better to follow the online recipe from Lineco: 1 rounded tablespoon in a 1/2 cup water and then thin to the consistency you want once it gels.
